    Good ride today, near 70k loop, lots of single track, some good climbs, bog holes, tight stuff between the trees, had the lot .
    Thanks for coming along Bigborett and Brute.

    And the Berger sleeps again. Until that time that it is called upon again for special mountain duties.
    It will answer the call, the call of the wild.

    Thanks. I used to do a bit of riding out the back of Yarra junction but haven't been that far down the road to Tanjil Bren.

    Heading out for a road loop on the F800 this Sunday, meeting at Pakenham Cnr Princess Hwy and Healesville Koo Wee Rup Rd (service lane) around 9am. Easy 250-300 k loop, via Healesville/Marsville/Lake Mountain/Reefton/Warburton/Gembrook.
    Lunch at Marysville or Reefton.
    Easy ride.

    Might see you around, I'll be on a slow+scenic photo-dawdle (mostly gravel) along the ridges from Warby to Lake Mtn. (BYO lunch/ coffee usually at the Snowy Hill Carpark = VIEWS!!) -> Warby and the gravel-backblocks across into Yellingbo.
    See a Husky TR (not too many around) with a small topbox at the side of the road, giz-a-wave, hope to get a good shot of you to maybe post up here :-)
