Baby steps – just 4 days and over 100 views in a day

There is no big goal being chased here but its nice to be able to recognise small landmarks as they happen. This site has been live for just a 4 days and today at 1543hrs we crossed the 100 views in a day line. Nice to see folks out there in the interworld are finding and reading our posts.

In the past 4 days the project has gone from nothing on a rainy day to a branded website with 3 pages of mountain bike trail information covering 2 distinct geographical areas and 12 different trail networks we have ridden recently. Plus in 7 seperate blog posts we have looked at snake bite first aid, trail grading, breaking news of trail closures due to potential asbestos contamination, a friends new blog, race reports and POV video of some trails. There is a developing map showing trail heads and routes, a youtube channel, a pinterest board and a facebook page starting to load up with content.

Stay tuned, we have lots more coming.
