A big Happy Birthday to @pollen_pal who is celebrating a milestone birthday today by going on a bikepacking adventure on the goldfields trail with some of the Durt crew! Can't wait to hear all the stories from their adventure!
Rare encounter while hiking around the Goldfields. Emu has a impressive resume. 2nd largest bird in the world, is flightless but can sprint 50km per hour and is not only endemic to Australia 🇦🇺 but appears on our coat of arms.
Flowers to remember a place or event. .
The flowers on the Gold fields track are not ones to boast. They prefer to go about their business quietly in the background. Meanwhile a small group of mountain bike riders are moving along at a pace knowing that 80 km is a lot of ground to cover. We ride from Hepburn Springs to Castlemaine, most of us made it, one elected to use an alternative mode to cover the last 20km. The track is mildly undulating, peppered with mining reminders and the odd creek/picnic area. There is reprieve along the topping up the kilojoules at the chocolate factory. Beautiful track, great day, or should I say weekend away (as we rode back !)

Lifting over a fence in a dry creek bed last weekend on the Goldfields Trail. The exit out of the creek was blocked so we had find another way out. Saddle sores have only just gone away from the long time in the saddle.

Spending the day riding from Castlemaine to Harcourt along the Goldfields Track 🌞 #goldfieldstrack#mtb
This weekend was one of the best I've had in... well, forever. The weekends just keep getting better; topping each other with more and more awesome happenings with brilliant people. Goldfields track is incredible. Go and ride it.
Thanks to the people that made this even remotely a possibility - I'd never have considered doing such a track before it was suggested. To the whole @mymountainmelb crew: you're all rad. Let's do this again some time. I need a reason to escape the city on that horrible Melbourne Cup Day, anyway... #MMGFWKD#SuchVariedTerrain#TeamMyMountain#MatesLyf#GoldfieldsTrack

Next stage of the Goldfields track. From Peel Street to White Swan. This is going thru the tunnel under the freeway. While yes it's safer, it's just not as much fun now that it is lit up! #goldfieldstrack#whyilovewalking
