So, while I wait somewhat impatiently for the new cross-build to come to fruition I’ve been thinking ahead to doing some pre-work riding around some of the local parks.
I’m pretty close to Caulfield Park and was over there today with Mrs Kiwicyclist and the kids visualising some good lines for a training loop- the possibilities are pretty good - sandy track around the entire park, a couple of hills and a set of steps up one of them, off camber hills and a long kind of pit with tan bark near the swings that would be a good mud/sand substitute with some low barriers to jump in a couple of spots around the loop.
If anyone lives over this way that is interested in coming out let me know. I plan on starting in the next few weeks.
Anyone else have some good local training loops in mind out of curiousity? - I know about ghetto cross and the route from Guidedogs of course - just trying to work out what might be feasible for an hour or so pre-work that is handy.
