Mountain Biking

For those that don’t know me, I’m a ‘little’ obsessed with biking – Mountain Biking in particular…    🙂

I don’t give a crap about AFL, or cricket – or Formula 1 – but MTB’ing is what I love.

While I don’t go fully sic, I enjoy the solitude & fresh air – just rolling along some trails – great exercise too…!


I’ve competed in a few mountain bike race events – but just to ‘complete’ – not ‘compete’ :


I first began riding on a Giant Alias – and rode trails at Lysterfield, Lake Mountain, Buxton – and competed in Avoca Nemesis Marathon + Mountain Challenge Enduro Series.

Since then, I’ve bought a new bike : Specialized Camber Comp

Check out this post – about the hunt for a new bike.

ROAD BIKE : Specialized Secteur Elite.

For riding to work mainly, and have completed the 100km Sorrento-Melbourne AROUND-THE-BAY-IN-A-DAY ride (Oct.2011) – and done a bunch of rides to The Dandenongs.


Have also done trails on other bikes – in Seattle (Specialized StumpJumper – on snow !) – and Mt.Buller (twice).   And some demo rides on Giant Alias + Giant Trance – at You Yangs.
