So after a big night, the crew got ready for The Cells.
Some of us were a bit dusty, but still keen.
Shane was to lead us in, and I was to provide backup with the GPS.
Here's Shane looking all spiffy after his relaxing night in the Resort Spa.
The boys line up
A bit of a wheelie from Ray
Ralfes Trail leads us into the Cells
Julian has an argument with the embankment
I'd hate to run into that on a greasy corner
The boys decided to test themselves on this little single trail
With various results
Shane turns it around
Quinney just props
Julian at speed
Blue Mountain Creek Trail
The start of the Cells
A steep greasy trail down
Plenty of creeks down here
Here comes Phil
Shane and Phil do recon
The Cells Hilton
The big greasy red hill
It stopped everyone
For over an hour we attempted to get all bikes up
Again and again
Some ventured into the bush
Others just watched and laughed
The 426 gave us some trouble
We met these blokes at the top of the range
Energy running low by this stage
It was cold and wet. My DR650 flattened the battery
After getting around that last deadfall tree, I could not start my bike on the button.
Ray and I sawed through the tree so I could get a rollstart.
Then it was follow the GPS out to the Oxly Highway.
We made it back to seaview with no incident, then I packed up and rode home.
It was a great weekend. Happy Birthday Pete.
Lets do it again next year.
