A cold morning met us as we got together at Rubberjaws. Rain and snow followed by a hard frost does not make for great conditions on tracks so we discussed our options before setting off. A good group gathered including, Rubberjaws, Fatboy, Tinkerbell, Mellonfarmer, Silverfox, Twopot, Geez, Hubby and English Mark. We rode up Rapaki until the turnoff past the gate half way up. We headed up to the top of Montgomery Spur. The photo shows the top and the team. Riding in the snow with a bit of slush was quite enjoyable. met anther dude on a Switchbacker so Mellonfarmer was happy. We headed back down to the track and headed up. At the bottom of the last climb we saw a group of riders gathered around a body. As we rode past the body was a guy who had obviously faceplanted in the conditions, was alive but obviously not well. We carried on and then watched the Westpac chopper land to take him away. We carried on up then around the road to the top of the Farm Track. Lotsa snow up there. We rode the ridgeline above the track making our own track down the hill. it was awesome in the snow. As we got down there was a lot more slush but no accidents. All in all a good ride, lotsa fun, a bit of mud and completed by a coffee at the end.
