9am, Saturday - soon to be father; Callum rings and says we're going for a spin in the snow.
This entails a 4 minute spin down to Trish & Callums for a warm up coffee then a further kilometre to the dirt.
We've put together a small loop that doesn't even get us into the forest, which is only 20 mins by bike.......oh I miss the driving. (Tui ad)
We spent our time on a bunch of tracks that drop from the sidle track down to the Clutha River and some thoughtful individuals have built a new (easier) track to take you back up to the top to pick another way down.....
Potential for getting it wrong rises considerably with speed, or supposed familiarity of the trail...so far nothing but a few scuffed rear derailleurs due to errant tree roots.
The snow didn't stay for long - the sun came out later on.
