Munda Biddi roller coaster blog: single track is the game
Wow. What a blast.
The Munda Biddi is one huge, fun, ride, with plenty of sweat, toil, and hardship thrown in.
Long single track stretches. No traffic. Big Jarrah tree forest. Free accommodation. Big watertanks. Not many, often make that no, others on the track.
This blog is the random thoughts generated by a second look at the Munda Biddi Trail near Perth. Should be accompanied by a soundtrack of 3 dimensional huffing and puffing.
This trip took place during a couple of hot weeks over Christmas 2010 and New Year 2011 on me old favourite hard tailed mountain bike.
Once up to Stromlo Road I stayed on the trail for a ripping, 5km single track, a firm surface for once, all downhill, front wheel sliding, (who cares?), ducking stray foliage, a face full of spider webs, and their spiders, rather too often, the best, most joyous fun for the trip, just unexpected after all the too much loose stuff downhills recently and followed by another 5km of almost overgrown, near horizontal single track.
Getting itchy for a ride: and work is closing down for 2 weeks
19 December 2010
Time is ticking down for an enforced Chrissy work break.
Christmas in Australia varies from what you might experience in the Northern Hemisphere.
It’s summer and officially the start of the summer holidays, 2 weeks break, or 3 for many. Boxing Day is the year’s busiest day on the roads as everyone evacuates the city and heads off to the beach house or a close grouping of tents.
