A huge thank you needs to go out to Alan Shrimpton and his crew for looking after the Dungog trails and setting up a fantastic course for us today (sure, some of the new bits were a bit sketchy to begin with but I think we started to bed them in nicely), and also to The Tinshed Brewery in Dungog for their donation to the event – if you haven’t called in to this place then add it to the list for next time you are in town – great food and some nice amber nectar to wash it down.
