On Saturday the 22nd, we went down to the pump track to do some building and were joined by large group of youths (clearly up to no good). We got a lot built, and added a small loop off the side of the main line, and fixed a few other bits. We were then joined by Joe, accompanied by Tim and Dave from No Cycling. Joe brought his hardtail but Tim and Dave were on full sussers and the mud was quite sticky, which made it hard going for everyone. Tim borrowed Joe’s Cannondale and being rather good on a bike managed to jump from the last roller in the middle line into the far berm, even more impressive considering how slow the mud made things.
On Boxing Day evening Irwin and I went down to the Pump Track on my bike for the usual flash and lights fun. I found out to my cost that you need at least two lights, one pointing where you want to go, the other pointing down into the dip of the next roller. The basic concept of the night was collect mud on your tyres going round the track, push up the bank and get leaves stuck on top of the mud, then roll in off the bank with it all flying off, only to repeat the process. 😆
