MGG #11 Report



It was a fresh but clear morning out at Belgrave, with a bit of a cold wind but it was better than the rain over the week. In any-case the 1st few pinchy climbs out of Belgrave got everyone warmed up, apart from a few navigation issues early on people seemed to find their way pretty well. The tough climb up Jacksons Hill rd was rewarded with great views North and South of Ridge road (see the pics below) and a great bit of suburban single track along that everyone enjoyed even if they walked it (least that's what they said).

Night Grinder is next week!




Well, Night Grinder 2 is only a week away. Next week, on Friday 13th, you should be charging your lights, filling your bidons and maybe having a quick nap after dinner before making your way out to Hurstbridge for an all night dirt road ride. Crazy? No! It's the most sensible thing in the world and I personally can't think of a better use of time than going for a spin at night and trying to see wombats.

Check out the event details here, and also have a read of the report from the first Night Grinder here.

See ya there!

MGG #9 Report


 Well that turned out pretty good I thought.

49 riders took off from Hurstbridge Station on a cloudy but mostly rain-free day - great riding weather, not too hot, not too cold. The send-off speech heavily emphasised the 50km option and I was glad to hear that many riders chose the 50km and enjoyed the hell out of it. At rego time, 28 riders said they'd try the 100km, 18 said they'd try the 50km and a couple were undecided. There were a few DNFs and a few shortcuts taken by those who knew the area but, as long as everyone had fun, no rules were broken.
