The “Short Notice” sports ride on Sunday was short – we made it home in advance of scheduled time but with a bit more time on public roads than usual for these rides. Five riders left the Taylor Pass mountain bike car park and did a loop through Graham Cooper’s farm, John Meek’s forest and back down Taylor Pass Road. There were a couple of stiff climbs added to by a navigation error. We had been warned about the steep downhill in the forest but it still produced an “Oh sh*t “ moment. Thanks to Graham and John for access.
