I spent the weekend riding the Santa Cruz Tallboy in the Surrey Hills — 2hrs on Saturday around Box Hill, then over 4hrs today, around Peaslake. Today was gorgeous, such nice weather — cold, crisp and still — and the trails were remarkably dry. Every minute was a pleasure, apart from when people were crashing... First, Deke broke his chain riding uphill on the road resulting in a big over the bars, then Alec went over the bars because he wasn't concentrating rolling down a fireroad and lost his hand off the bars. Lots of pain, but fun for most of it, and I was alright. My legs are shot now though... Check the stats — over 1300m of climbing!
Oh yeah, I got a new phone, an HTC Desire — I'm loving the Vignette app for taking pics.
