Tooling around Toolangi

Did a quick 3 hour ride around the Toolangi logging trails … great fun, though a bit of a bone shaker. ALL the trails are basically cobblestones.
the good, the bad, and the ugly …

Agree.
Never thought it'd be that dry already after all the rain we had. Not the bush...but the tracks/ roads.

Went though there yesterday from Toolangi end to Whanregawen via Black Range. Was mostly dry until the north end which had some recent rain and was slightly damp. Didn't notice any real bumps, potholes or cobbles :cool:

Toolangi SF is actually quite a large area from the Healesville/ Yarra Glen end in the south to the Goulburn Vly https://bit.ly/3kVVrHl
It also spans at least 2 distinct weather zones....the southern being the slopes of the Melbourne "Basin"....the other anything north of the "first-line-of hills" (i.e. Toolangi/ Healesville, The Slide, Black Spur etc.
Then there are micro-climates around Mt. St. Lenoard (wet/ foggy/ etc), around Yea (copping it from the south / Melba Hwy as well as west/ Goulburn Valley, resulting in thunderstorms/ showers when all else is dry.

A soggy, grey day in Melbourne's East often is a bright, sunny affair north of Kinglake.....returning from the dry north around Mansfield one often can cop a fairly decent thunderstorm/ shower around Yea, just to turn overcast but dry further south towards Kinglake or Flowerdale.
Ride it often enough...and the pattern will confirm over and over.

I was tooling around the Mt St Leonard’s area, pretty dry though. One muddy patch.
having spent my previous life on the tarmac, three rocks n a 1km stretch is a cobblestoned road!
