Training Ride with Fastracks
Sunday morning was our first opportunity to use the bikes in anger. Neil had invited us to join him and 2 other rides, Wayne and Josh, to take the 250km trip from the Sunshine Coast to Rainbow Beach via the Cooloola Way. It was a great chance to get used to the bikes on gravel roads, and, with a detour alone the Freshwater Track, Franco and I were to get our first taste of the bikes in sand. Needless to say they are more of a handful than our KTM EXC's but nowhere near as difficult to ride than we had expected. We are now so happy with the bike choice as they clearly fulfill all our needs.
