‘Blores Hill MTB park’ & the Dippers

after reading local MTB clubs 4 Hour Enduro Race Report (& claiming Blores Hill as one of the districts favourite riding spots) We decided to head to Lake Glenmaggie in eastern Victoria (a place where I spent a lot of my childhood ) and check out  ‘Blores Hill MTB park‘.
         It Truly was  an amazing experience. Endless flowing single trails thru undulating natural Aussie bush land. Among the eucalypts we also passed some unusual fauna, like an old bike stuck in a stump, pile of bones, shoes, and  troll doll. The 17km of trail that I travelled was easy apart from the following moderate obstacles...
 1- I mustered up the courage (like throwing oneself off a cliff courage)  and negotiated a dipper
2- Also managed the plank over the tree trunk,
3- rode thru the V tree on the 2nd pass,
4- and got air on a few log jumps.
          Thankfully the weather was fine (So wasn’t any mud to wash off the bikes). The trails are shared use with walkers but we only saw one other cyclist during the couple of hours ride.
