21-1 Brown Mountain Fire Road to West Ridge of Brown Mountain

Participants: Craig Cheetham, Phillip Cheetham and Tom Chester, plus bicyclists Scott Chester and Travis Young
Date: 14 August 1996 (Written up 24 September 1996)

This was Scott and Travis' introduction to mountain biking, while Craig and I got in our usual weekly hike. We didn't have time to reach the end of the Brown Mountain Fire Road on this hike. Judging from the distance I got when I mountain biked this road, we only made it a bit past halfway.
