Terwillegar Terrific

A short ride that would have been the only one of the set which was supposed to be anti climatic and boring turned into me cancelling important plans so I can ride my bike again. 

It was great kids. 

A short seventeen or eleven kilometer  ride today in Terwillegar park.

People are strange. 

I returned on the Flat Pete's and the lame Logarythmic (save it for Winter(get off my lawn!)) and rode up the outside climb back into the hills close to the river. Now what's that trail called? Terwillegar-1 is the best I could find and it was decided to ride up there as it was the easiest in the area. 

It wasn't easy. But you know what? 

I made it kids. 

Riding bikes rules. See you tomorrow.
