Managed to find some secret ‘woodwork’ today that I have been tracking down for a few rides now. Great fun!

In my 4 1/2 years of MUni, and riding countless trails and places, I have yet to encounter a trail with that north shore-type stuff! I MUST ride do that someday soon!

That looks cool - there used to be some quite decent north shore stuff in a couple of places round here, but it's all been taken down now

Yep, well worth tracking down, although the trails you ride appear (from your visuals) to be more rock than wood.

I've found a few remains of North Shore around that has been knocked down, hopefully this stuff will stay standing for a while, it's located in a quiet part of the woods and is well tucked away so hopefully.......

My latest rides with the geared 29 = buffalo creek and white ranch.

Buffalo creek was amazing! Smooth singletrack and I was able to use the high gear on the 29er quite a few times. White Ranch was extremely technical and I probably won't be going back on the 29er, I will tackle it again when I get my DH uni.

Went to Cheeseboro again today, and what a beautiful day! With about 2 miles left of my 10 mile MUni ride, I suddenly found myself in a full-on race with three cross country runners! I was on my 29er and using the 125mm crank hole, and as I pulled out in front of the pack I was pedaling so fast I thought I must be spinning 3 revs per second! I knew I would have to maintain at least close to that--for the next TWO MILES--to have any chance of finishing first!

Every time I glanced behind me, they were right there and I was having a hard time putting more space between us. These last 2 miles were slightly downhill with a few ups. I was maintaining good speed on the uphills, but this is where at least one of them was beginning to catch up with me. Two of the three runners fell further and further behind, but now the one runner was right on my heels! It was now a 2 man race. One on foot, the other on one wheel!

As we approached the last 1/4 mile, I glanced over my shoulder and that fastest runner was about to overtake me as he was going for that last big surge! I started spinning as fast as I could and I must've been hitting 15mph, and yet he was just a couple seconds behind me!

Just as I got to the end, I dismounted and he was right there behind me. He put out his hand to shake mine and we both congratulated each other on a great race! I actually can't believe I beat this guy! Turns out all three guys are on their College Cross country team, and when I asked the guy who almost beat me what his best mile time was, he said "4:37"!!!! He's the guy to my immediate right.

Hunter Creek MUni

Door to door MUni, unfortunately had to turn around at 10,000', too much snow still. Still got in over 3,600' vertical and 23 miles of dirt with a little bit of paved trail for access. Best 4 days of weather yet for the mountains. Rafting, unicycling, more rafting, and more unicycling- fantastic weekend.
