I started my day with a fast MTB ride…

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!

Mountain Bike Training | Friday 27 March 2009

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.
