It was a gorgeous day today and the Yarra Trails were magnificent. Beautifully tacky in most places but a bit muddy in some. A quick loop of the Paddock Loop had my tyres chock-a-block and the frame full of sticky mud. Half the loop was okay but the other was virtually unrideable. I think I’ll need to give it a miss for a while. I took some pix on the way home tonight to show what the trails are really like.
I’m sure most have no idea how beautiful and tucked away it is. I think most have visions of cruising along the bitumen bike track when I say I’ve ridden the MTB to work. Not so. These trails have everything; good short hard climbs, technical rock gardens, flowing single track… and all within minutes of the CBD. Lucky it is still mostly a secret!
