Australian Single Speed Nationals 2012 - Beechworth, Bushranger themed (sort of) - 20:33
Posing with Jeebus (fullsize)
Wow right now I am finding it surprising I have not been to the single
speed nationals since 2012, (un) organised every year by a group of
locals somewhere, sort of overseen by Australian Recreational
Singlespeed Enthusiasts (ARSE). The
Canberra SSNATS event in Majura Pines was heaps of fun, organised by
Canberra One Gear Society (COGS).
In 2013 the event was in Cairns and though it sounded fun I decided it
was just a bit too far to head up there for the event, in 2014 I tried
and tried to talk friends into heading up for the weekend in Dungog NSW,
however few of my Canberra friends were keen and I did something else
that weekend (softie that I am).
I am still hoping the road trip to Wombat State Forest in Victoria will
go ahead for the 2015 event. There was a ANZAC event in Rotortua over
easter however I skipped that. This however is all getting off the topic
I made it down to 2012, camping with McCook and having a fantastic
weekend of mtb riding with the crew in Beechworth. The rather important
aspect of beer was sorted that weekend and
Bridge Road Brewerers in
that town and they are possibly my favourite brewer in Australia.
The Beechworth mtb park is a great mix of interesting technical stuff
and fun all in native bush, there were other ride options as can be seen
in my gallery also. Photos and words from the
2012 Australian Single Speed
Nationals are online in the link.
