BRANCH RIVER | SUNDAY JULY 30, 2017
Stunning Winters day for a rec ride up the Branch River!
9 riders who didn't fear the cold trundled up the frozen road to Greigs Hut enjoying mountain views, patches of sunshine and MTB oriented banter. Calories were leisurely consumed at the hut and a random swingbridge thoroughly inspected before rolling back down the valley on the rapidly thawing track.
