East Side Mountain Biking

Smooth trails, great company and a patched up side wall. What could possibly make for a better day of mountain biking then that combination?

Today I went out riding with a group of keen riders from the Central Australian Rough Riders to explore the trails on the east side of Alice Springs, including some freshly cut trails that most people hadn’t ridden before. The riding was generally smooth with early sections serving up nice technical stretches, some well designed switchbacks and a few hills. Alice Springs really doesn’t know what a hill is, but to be honest I think I will be able to deal with that!

Today’s course and vertical profile.

As mentioned in  my previous post today was also the first time I’ve seen clouds since arriving in Alice Springs and I am convinced that the stunning scenery of Alice Springs is only improved by partially clouded sky.
