I started my day with a fast 50min MTB ride! I rode up from lower Woodstock through the streets over the M3 and then over De Waal drive. For the first time in ages I saw the Deer Park boom closed (not sure why)… I dodged under and headed up to the block house! I really enjoy that rode up to the block house its quick tough to ride due to the loose stones, I can actually run up there faster than I can ride. When I got to the top some chop had writen on the memorial plaque below the block house (dunno what possess’ people)… Anyways, the next part if my favourite, I turn around and chase down the hill, sliding through corners pushing hard and faster than before!
I got home and felt ready to tackle another day….. But oh wait Telkom’s network is fuct! Grrrr….. Anyways, its been a good day!
1 hr 30 min riding where I followed much the same route as previous two rides in the week, but this time met up with a fellow trail runner who was also mountain biking. We took a very different route to normal and walked up the stairs above Rhodes Momerial. After the walk we flew down a very steep hill the other guy called suicide climb, which is situated just under the block. After that we rode towards tampon towers afterwhich I rode back home along the same jeep track traveled.
Road for 1h15 minutes at high intensity along much the same route as the 24th March.
Rode up to devils peak entrance, along the front road to Rhodes Memorial through the burnt hills, past Rhodes mem, past UCT tennis club, past nature conservation offices, up the hill to beakon below block house, run up to blockhouse with bike on back, then down the dirt road and back home.
