HadesOmega's Stonyford Memorial Day Ride

Stonyford is so open! Did the THill track day and headed to Stonyford and did some electro dirtbiking action with the Sur Ron Light Bee on Memorial Day. When I was driving down the M10 I looked down below and there were HELLA people camping. Everyone popped smoke when the heat rolled in during memorial day though. It's almost as if Shelter in Place is non existant here!

I know there was a big fire at Stony a while back like last year but all the trails I rode (I didn't ride all of them) were open and in good shape. All I have to say electric bike + hot weather + stonyford hillclimbs = controller overheat (thermal cutback). Best to come when temps aren't in triple digits. I did exactly what I said rode in the morning. Came back to camp and charged the bike and tried to chill out till it got cooler then went for another ride. It was so hot but depending where you were it would be cooler like on Potato Hill it was cooler because it's higher up and more canopy up there.

First Ride was Potato Hill

Potato Hill

About 85% up the crest of Potato Hill the controller overheated so I had to take a break

Turns out it overheated at almost top, a constant 2000ft climb = hot controller

Singletrack at the top of Potato Hill
