Scrapheap 8 to Tingha (RR)

Highlights

My first Scrapheap ride. A great bunch of people and a very friendly atmosphere all the way there and back. The tracks chosen were fantastic. Views over Liverpool Plain, some really good tracks thru the plain. Early on the second day, we all got foxed by this long section of marble road surface. It had everyone stopping and scratching their heads over whether their tyre inflation was right. It was… It was just a wild surface like running on 1 inch glass marbles.

The road back thru Kentucky and Nundle Stat Forest was a really nice ride. My first time thru Glenrock and Barry Stations and the river crossings all had water.

The long run thru Tomalla had some great views and it seemed like a long way down into the Woko Campground. We arrived at about 7pm.

Commentary

A really great bunch of people. A lot of different bikes. I enjoyed the corner man system you get to wave at everyone a number of times thru the day instead of nav rides where you sometimes only see some people at dinner time.
