Title: On Friday..
Post by: michnus on February 04, 2006, 10:24:12 pm
morning we decided that work must stop at 10am and riding bike is a better choice of work. I mean really.....pull leeez, what's this
working on a Friday anyway? It was the perfect day for riding, hot, humid and overcast.Out from East London to KingWilliams town
straight through to Doubledrift nature reserve.
Carry on along the Fishriver then through Ecca pass to
Grahamstown then Bathurst and back home. 400km of 80%humidity overcast riding. :lol:
 We did not take plenty pics.....riding was to much fun to think of pics. Next time we'll take more.

This is next to the Fishriver, the roads are awesome, sliding and spinning stuff.
