I have finally moved back to Cronulla after four years in Adelaide. Guess I am going to have to get used to the heavier traffic in Sydney like in this shot on Captain Cook Dr during a recent pedal to Kurnell. At the least this truck is doing the right thing and giving the riders plenty of room as he passes. Plenty of room in the bike lane as well by the look of it.
Up in the Adelaide Hills on Div's Magical Mystery Tour Saturday 5 November 2016. I have been on a couple of these Saturday dirt road adventures now and am really starting to enjoy them. We have gotten to see some of the beautiful back road scenery that exists up in the Adelaide Hills. Dirt road adventures might just become my regular Saturday thing.

Jack's ride up in the Adelaide Hills. Jack's ride turned into Div's ride as Div took a few us more adventurous types for some off bitumen riding to discover roads and scenery not seen before by many of us. For those interested these images are frame grabs from a 4K video shot on the GoPro.

Rode up to Eagle MTB Park to snap some images of the Gravity Enduro Series. I figured out why there are not many young guys riding road bikes around the streets of Adealide. They are all up in the hills riding dirt hills. Watch out for the slideshow of images from the shoot they will be posted over the next few days.

Paula took us out on our MTBs for this ride. It was my first time on a MTB for nearly 10 years. I had forgotten how hard it can be. We started on the Chambers Gully Track and diverted onto the Bartil Spur, Gunbower and Wine Shanty Tracks. Bloody steep, had to walk a fair bit as it got to 28% in some spots. Even had my first walk down hill where it was also 28% - slid most of the way down. I think I had fun.

Accpeted an invite with the Ride 4 A Reason bunch for a ride up Norton Summit to Lofty and then back down the freeway for coffee at Velo Precinct (great coffe) in Vic Park. Pat Jonker was the bunch leader for the ride. This crew help raise money for the Cancer Council.

Only know this guy as Gavin. He had been out surfing Shark Island on the morning this was shot. He was paddling back in via Cronulla Point where I was shooting and he jagged this one, the wave of the day, on his way through to the beach. Some guys have all the luck.
