Headed out to the valley to ride some trails I hadn’t ridden before. Planning to park at Jorgensen Park but it was chockas when I rocked up with marshall’s directing people to overflow so I drove down to the bottom road instead.
Worked quite well as I could ride the deviator up the hill to warm up. Rode loose lips which was quite good then some random single track to sh!tn gears and then up that. Bit of stuffing around at the top trying to find hand of the shadow, eventually found it and rode down that. Fun long descent. Managed to pickup a single track through back along then back on the other single track down to where the powerlines cross. Up the power line track through andromeda and then got a bit lost looking for a new track, stuffed around looking near utopia then rode back out and along further and found it.
Down portal which was good fun and then a bit scrappy at the end. Started climbing trying to work out how to get back to my car, tired now, rode a long way away from where I wanted to be but eventually found a place to cross back across the river and then rode singletrack and firetrail back.
Bit longer than I was planning but some good fun trails.
