    read the small print - living in the same premises exempt. Although with 3 kids it's a biological impossibility for all 3 to cooperate long enough for group rides.

    To be fair, they're doing a great job at the moment.

    On Friday, middle sprog disappeared amongst the trees and built an obstacle course. They were out negotiating it until sunset.

    The paddock bomb is getting a workout , they're helping with the chooks / vege garden without being asked. Taking turns at going for walks along the single line with each ither.

    Life is good.

    Went for a little trundle today at Lysterfield. Three of us, so we cheated slightly. Two from one house though, so sort of the same formulae.

    Anyway. Probably one of the busiest days I have seen there. Amazing, people everywhere. Not that you are on top of each other on the trail, but quite surprising. Some big groups too.
    Well we are riding along minding our socially distancing business when a runner (female) stops in a sharp turn, could well and truly see us though, lines Jak up, screams at him and pushes him, "keep your bloody distance".
    Now I was behind Jak and saw this woman with plenty of warning, she could have happily kept running past him or taken a couple of steps to the side to increase her "social distance". But no, little miss crazy bitch chooses to stop, line up and assault a 6'3" odd male on a pushy.:fishie

    Honestly it's going crazy. This woman was so out of line. Lucky she did not fall over, don't know how, but she could have.

    Hate to see her out for toilet roll.

    Should note though, it's not the first time Jak has had trouble with the natives at Lysty.
    Just saying.

    Got to love crazy women.
    Talking about crazy people and MTBs my son and his mates had a run in with some nutter. Pre virus, they had all been riding on the local trails and were going to get some food at the local shopping centre. Single file riding at a reasonable speed in a shared pedestrian / vehicle area. Some crazy man decides to hit each of the boys in front of my lad, skip mine (6'5", 16 year old) and the kick the 11 year old off behind him and lay the boot in whilst he was getting up.
    The 11 yr old ended up with a fractured arm. The guy was picked up by the police and I believe charged with something or other.

    pure pedal power like the old days, none of the bullshit electric assist :D

    not too bad, according to my Mamil tracker i gained 58m of elevation, but I did only get 8m above sea level, the rear shock did its job well

    There are a lot of Toni Bou and Danny McAskill films out there, pedal power vs petrol power.
    I haven't seen Toni Bou ride along a spiked fence yet, not that I doubt his ability, but Danny McAskill is certainly not afraid of a big vertical drop off either and he's certainly up for trying anything that would make most people choke, petrol or pedal power.
