First Proper Bike Ride of the Year…

Woke up to a clear blue sky, a slight breeze and birds tweeting in the pine trees.  We were on the first lift as is standard procedure on school days and after a pretty good 2hr morning session on the (icey & choppy) snow where it was all about speed it was nice to get on the bike this afternoon for a proper rip!

Some new upgrades made for a fun ride.  Climbed up to about 1600m so that’s about 500m of vertical but as we all know..what goes up MUST come down 🙂

Covered about 18km on the bike and 20km this morning on the board.  Did manage to take a few pictures with the phone but it was all about the ride today…
