Thanks to Cogers,Jinxy,Woody and mate Glin for turning up yesterday for a Woky ride. Wasn’t to sure what the weather was going to do but we didn’t cop too much rain while out on the bikes, got more wet from overgrown bushes. Thankfully it was just the the local Crusty guys as I had to cut the ride short after loosing the front end on slippery logs and tweaking the knee. Luckily we pick up a local rider at the parking spot and he was able to take the Jinxy and Cogers out and get a few more km in.
Thanks again 👍and all being well see you at Northcliff😁

Good job on the report Jack and thanks for organising the tow back for the berg and also thanks to Rothy for the sweep. It was a tricky rescue job when the tow involved hopping over lots of logs and rocks and we did manage to get the strap wrapped around the rear wheel and sprocket a few times.
In the end we only managed about 50klms for the day but we got some quality new single trax mapped and being a Sunday it was nice to be home nice and early to hit the couch.

“Start u Basterd”
Players: MicKal, Jed, Jaden, Rothy, Bruce, Jack.

Second day of gusterly conditions kept many riders at home, but there’s always a few that need that weekly fix of adrenalin rush and clear the head. MicKal called an explore ride, so being a no pressure cruise and look around Bruce returned to the scene after a few years in hiatus with his 70degree Berg (magic bikes back in their day).

After a short G’day in the carpark with Bruce and reminisce on which CQ’s still ride Jacko got a mention and his mechanical prowess on getting Bruce out of the shit last ride he did with CQ’s. Dark clouds gathered and the sky started to precipitate, so quickly we geared up and hit the trails.

Hang on ! Bruce has got his seat off and squirting Start U Basterd spray down the throat of the Berg. “ Hey Bruce doesn’t she want to go? Nah I start her like this all the time”

MicKal leads through some new single, gullies, logs and a bit of everything. Jed and Jaden ride on MicKal’s coat tails as the two smokers like to keep together because they are a stinky bunch and us cruisers on the four bangers come up the rear.

30km in Bruce sits out a gnarly hill climb whilst Rothy wishes he had too. A new Erzberg section was found and Rothy retreated after he conquered the hardest part in case it got gnarlier. This was not to be and we eventually regrouped with Bruce and Rothy to explore more new single. By now Bruce and his Berg were exhausted and when the Berg conked out on a log that was it and just would not start.

First we look around to see where Jacko is, “oh bugger he’s not riding today”, so we dismantle the kill switch incase it’s jammed - no joy. Then wish we brought that can of “Start u Basterd” with us and crank the starter until battery goes dead.

Out with the tow rope and we commence the 1km recover mission back to the vehicles on single track. Both MicKal and Rothy share the duties to muscle the Berg whilst being towed by Jack and Bruce had taken up the offer to go ahead and ride Rothy’s bike as that was the only safe way to get everybody back to the vehicles at the same time and avoid further misfortune.

Finally we get back to the cars, quickly load up the bikes, have a short yarn with new CQ’s members that were meant to ride today but came late and “ bloody hell the dark clouds gathered and the sky started to precipitate again “.

End of Ride !

Hi Inver
Mate I agree but I have to work to pay the bills and I guess I have used my sick leave with other injuries and sooner or late the business has to decide if they want me to continue paying me.
I will see what the surgeon has to say on Tuesday and maybe I could be lucky enough to dodge an operation. Time will tell
Cheers mate 👍

Heading out on Saturday at Woky. They forecast rain but who knows how much and when....if any
Be at the normal parking spot on big tree Rd by 8:30
Going to check out some new stuff but will be doing single tracks and hills and rocks 😁

Anyone keen on doing the Kalgoorlie Desert Race best get online and enter. Not too many spots left.

Bad luck Bunga
It makes me laugh when an employee says you can’t ride bikes any more as a hobby
They always encourage us to be more active because employees know siting on your Arse for 12 hour A shift is not good for your health either
Just tell them you sold all the bikes and just do yoga now
All the best with the recovery
Hope to see u at the OVT 20 years drinks

Bunga, it's not as bad as you think. I had partial tear of the acl and full tear of mcl. No operation just time. Two months later all I had was a slight limp. Riding a bicycle when it's good enough will strengthen it up. After six months it's as if it never happened. As my surgeon said you don't really need them. I wear proper braces now.

Hey Mick
It’s a partial tear of the ACL and a minor fracture to the Femur but I’m sure the surgeon will confirm the extent of damage on Tuesdays appointment. My days of riding skinny bikes have come to an end unfortunately. The boss isn’t happy at all and my job comes first from what I’m hearing.
I will find out Tuesday when the surgery will take place. I’m hoping after Northcliffe or I will be up for $300 for a room at the pub I can’t use
