Here's a short vid of last weekend's ride at Yellowmundie.

This track is home to WSMTB and has a reputation for being smooth and flowing, and mostly non-technical, but it still has some fun bits that can surprise ;)

Vid looks good. The view of the river now the lantana has been removed is nice. :)

It's a really fun track. :D

That first descent straight down the fall line I think needs to be re-routed to be sustainable, as rain will eventually erode it to oblivion on its current alignment, but the rest of it has been done very well.

I've put in a question about where to get that yellow grid material as I think it would solve some problems on one notoriously boggy spot at Manly Dam.

Are all the sections of the track open now? I went a couple months ago and some of the sections were closed off due to maintenance.

Some sections still closed. Those stotms a few months ago sure made a mess. :(

All of the loop I rode at the 4hr last year is still open. 7-8km lap I think. Took us mid 20 minutes to do our laps on the weekend from memory. One section up near tje high voltage tower near where i had that little stumble on the vid was closed.

Looking at going to Yellowmundie this weekend. Only ridden it once about 12 months ago.
