Saturday 17 January 2009 - Ourimbah

With Sydney experiencing heat wave weather in the preceding week, we were a little worried about cooking on this ride, but (as always with mountain biking) it turned out to be perfect: a little rain on the way there, and then it cleared to a beautiful 23 degree day, with perfect track conditions!

Paul, Nicole, Akis and Stephe arrived safe and sound at 7.45am, before too many others had filled the car park. After an excellent warm up lap, it was clear that a second lap would be in order, and it was a good run. By the time we were back at the cars, we were a little tired, but the conditions demanded a third run - which was also excellent, although we did end up fairly knackered (turns out that charging up the hills, and then charging down them again, is very hard to do for a long time! Where do the 24hr folk get their stamina from??).

Photos are up here, but here are a couple of samples (Paul, Akis and Nicole respectively):
