Late night Lawrence

Arguably a big day for most crossing the Old Woman and Old Man Ranges in dense mist. Unfortunately the best riding of the week was hampered by the poor visibility. Most agree the potential is there for a first class ride.

Mother Nature teases with glimpses of blue sky

Oddly enough the evening is quiet and the temperature just right for riding.


Late evening dash after the jet boat ride, could it be Lawrence tonight? Matt, Nathan, Aliesha and Hamish


Downtown Lawrence on a Tuesday night! Hamish, Kim, Ali and Mark

Food seems to be a strong theme in this evenings txt check-ins.

Ian and wendy are in Alexandra.  I'm sure that the views were excellent but we couldn't see more than a few metres all day.  Mud, mud glorious mud.

Andy Jones checking in from Alex. Great ride over from Cromwell despite no vis over the top. Shame as it's a stunning area. That descent to Alex is awesome!

Russell Shanks Ranfurley 😁 Sooo totally pleased to be off Swampy without any fractures. Bit of a wet branch situation in there for a few hundred metres that l found very challenging indeed. Resolved by walking most of it 😦
