A new combo

Last night I hit Mt Stromlo around 645 for an easy stroll around the park with someone who’d never been off-road in the dark before. I chose to ride the Rig because it is the new bike in the quiver and the novelty has certainly not worn off.
There was a plethora of lights on the hill - many people taking advantage of the warm evening to have some MTB-fun.
I had to put my foot down a fair bit, the new bike, the big gear and the rough spots combining to thwart me at times.

Next week I hope to join the Bike Culture ride on the same bike. That should be a test.

As John told me last week - a single speed keeps you honest. You owe it to yourself to get a 1-gear and to ride it a lot, particularly in the dark. Now get out and ride!
