Phillip Ruddock tries mountain biking

Postby trailgumby » Tue Dec 26, 2017 3:46 pm

Previous federal cabinet minister Phillip Ruddock is now mayor of Hornsby Council and has been instrumental in keeping the Old Mans Valley mountain bike park open and operating while the NorthConnex project tips its tunnelling spoil into the disused Hornsby Quarry.

Here he tries out a bit of riding on the recently re-opened trails.

Phillip Ruddock always struck me as a decent bloke for a politician. Mind you - when you add the qualifier "for a politician" you are immediately setting the bar several notches lower!

Vivid imagination for a politician too.

How do you think that they got him to descend so fast? That wasn't faked you know, they just told him to imagine that there were some escaped asylum seekers at the bottom of that trail and he had to go and round them up. :P

I s'pose he was good enough to decline the approaches of the mafia.
Amanda Vanstone, Greg Hunt, Russell Broadbent and Mathew Guy, to name a few.
Let's just say they've been acting in the interests of the Italian "community".

I know Phillip Ruddock draws strong emotions, but please try to avoid politics & keep it cycling related
