Ewen Maddock Dam

Mowgli's picture

We rocked up at Geoff and Crystelle's place mid afternoon as the clouds overhead threatened to sprinkle. It was nice and cool and the dam looked amazing as ever. The track was pretty firm with only a few slightly muddy parts and some horses hooves holes in the clay areas up the top of the first hill.
The down hills were wild and free and the up hills were as hard as always.
Riding around to the dam recreation area was a blast. We passed a few other cyclists going the other way and one going both ways (not at once). Once at the dam we paused for a break, and then tried out some table top jumps on the new BMX track. Then it was a long commute back on the road (Steve Irwin way) and back in the bottom end via Landsborough to arrive back just as a downpour dumped. We stayed dry!

A visit to the local pie shop afterwards filled the spot after riding 22.56km. Map and terrain and stats from the Garmin.
