Each year there is an awesome mtb race in Nelson called the “Santa Cruz Coppermine Epic” A tough but fun blast up the old Dun mountain railway, around Nelsons’ alpine mineral belt, then descending down from the Coppermine saddle. An excellent ride, and were even rewarded with a beer at the top of fringed hill this year! It’s a tough and testing ride in places with a “splattering” (literally by some) of alcohol.
But today was something even more testing. The self proclaimed “Coppermine Epic Gargantuan Glover Gut-buster”, now even better, ...... it’s on “one” wheel .
Murray, Daena, Katie and I cruised up Codgers and return today on "one". A fun session and some good practice for the little kids, as well as us big ones :)Murray and I spent a bit of time picking lines through the gully, and also up to the Codgers sign which always seems to be a challenge to cleanly ride.
A lot of fun had by all
A great day out last Sunday and heaps of fun. Below are some photos of the day with great skills shown by Kev and Tay riding unassisted on only there first time on a unicycle, and of course Gareth on his 36" monster juggling rings and showing us all how it should be done. Heaps of new riders which was great to see, and the old "see saw of death" continued testing a few. We had around 20 riders and plenty of spectators, with heaps of thrills and yes a few splills, eh Dean ... Cant wait for the next one
Last Monday night saw Julian, Wayne, Finn and me out on another evening blast around Richmond's walking tracks. A fun evening with young Finn riding every set of stairs he could find, while the rest of us were a little more reserved.
if anyone would like to come along to any of our evening rides (generally once a week) then send me a note and I will advise you of our next ride
A great fun ride up codgers on Saturday with Murray, Daena, Julian, Katie and myself heading up to the Tantragee saddle and back, including a side excursion down the DC track.
A different take on some already fun mtb tracks.
Is Waterloo and Willow Lane getting a bit tame for you on "two"? Then how about trying them out on "one". Murray, Julian, Finn and myself rode them on Saturday. There fun and challenging tracks to attempt on "one", offering us all plenty of surprises and spills at one time or another. Give it a whirl; I'm sure Juddy designed them for the one wheelers out there, didn't you mate. A great day out for sure. Here's a few photos of our encounter up there. Cheers Marty
