I think there's probably a certain amount of people regarding the bush season as being over once the Australian Championships have happened.
My comment was as a comparison with recent years and the numbers suggest a change in the last 12 months. I think it is more attributable to the rise of the SiS profile.
New St Mungo is more tempting than eastern suburbs woop woop (if I feel like 3 Bendigo trips in the space of a week given I've scored a day out in Swan Hill for work).
I'm sad that I won't get to go to a bush event until February.
Five days around Goulburn?
We won't be attending the Christmas 5 Days this year as we need to ration our trips before our Year of Travel (YoT) in 2018. Plus Fedor didn't give the maps in question much praise (we did ride on one of them a couple of weeks ago at Belanglo).
Jenny, I think my next bush event will be Easter in Tasmania and due to injury I haven't been to one since July 2 so that's almost nine months between visits.
