Title: Canola Run 2017
Post by: Andy660 on September 10, 2017, 07:42:53 am
Fantastic Canola Run, the best one ever.
And I know I say that every year,but it was,
The routes all very well marked,plenty of marshals,
Big Thanks to Caledon Traffic dep. For stopping the traffic on the N2 to give us all right of way when we crossed over.

Big up to all the sponsors too and most of all to Tinie and his team
,VERY WELL DONE ,!

Agreed. As much as I am uncomfortable off road, I felt safe.  Plenty backup crews. Definitely doing it next year.

Johnny Bok en almal wat betrokke was met die reŽlings, knap gedaan! Al ken ek julle glad nie was die effektiwiteit van die verloop en die gasvryheid aanvoelbaar.

Ek ry saam met Andy hulle en moet die klankgrens breek net om by te bly oppad Caledon toe.
Daar aan gekom is ek klaar asvaal van die stof  :3some:

Robin Brown, wat op 14 September 1945 die tweede wÍreld oorlog net-net vrygespring het wen op 72 die prys vir die oudste deelnemer.
Op die tweede foto kom hy teen die bult uit op sy African Twin.

Terwyl baie se ego gekrenk is deur die stukke sand en modder, ry diť veertien jarige Yolanda haar plaasfiets lag-lag deur die roete.
Sy't die dag voor die tyd gees gevang en besluit om ook te ry. Geen spesiale uitrusting, 100cc two-stroke padfietsie en sy laat ons ander skaam weg kyk.
Met daai hout-trommel agterop was sy seker ook nog reg om padbystanddiens te lewer.

Mooi so my kind, met die regte fiets sal jy darem vir baie van ons ore aansit!  :3some:

Dink hy was nog meer verbaas om my daar te sien.

Na net oor die honderd kilometer op die lekkerste plaaspaaie is ons almal rasend van die honger en lyk ons
soos Kommando-wurms in die kos ry.

Oom Bok.Weereens dankie vir die hoogte punt op ons kalender.Elke jaar is net lekkerder.Die gasvryheid en die ongelooflike lekker kos. Dan ook vir daardie verassings soos die koffie in die oggend en dan daardie pannekoek en die smul lekker koeksisters en daardie sagte braaivleis julle mag maar. n 12 uit 10 en die roete was soos altyd baie lekker.Dit was hierdie jaar opvallend en baie lekker dat daar soveel pillions was.Ek hoop hulle het baie fotos geneem toe hulle wag net bo die sand heuweltjie.

Ons sien julle weer volgende jaar weer - Dankie vir ongelooflike lekker dag en memories en almal wat gehelp het met die reelings.Groete.

Hey there Guys & Gals

Just a quick update regarding my photos I promised....

I'm still busy making my way through the footage from my helmet camera to extract the photos. With me only getting back home late yesterday, I wasn't able to get much done last night. I'm currently still busy doing my best to get through all my footage ASAP in order for me to post all the shots I got of most of you guys & gals along the route.  :ricky: :ricky: ;D

I'm currently by the section where that "Really Cool SAND Section" was.....& I already have almost 500 photos of most of the riders ;D ;D

(...BTW Johnnie Bok...PLEASE include that section of sand in next year's ride  :thumleft: :thumleft:  ;D )

I lost all clutch at the very start of that section , and stalled the bike , eventually got the thing started and with the lever pulled all the way in the bike just kept going forwards , got through ok though  :thumleft: and half a km afterwards the clutch was ok again .

Hi

It was me who donered over on the grass before we even started :-[
 -sorry about the grass.

After that: What an awesome day!
I was a bit put off by the R200 when I first read about the ride, then all my friends bailed, but I decided to come anyway (the other option was a funduro in Malsbury).
Well, even without my friends there, it was the best R200 I've ever spent, and seeing what went into the organising, I don't know how it was done on so little.
 -I guess I do know: all the great farmers & sponsors who just did it because that's just how awesome they are.

Anyway, here are some of my pics from the day:

Post by: raphaeltube on September 12, 2017, 03:31:37 pm
As I was leaving, I was behind a guy on a big KTM who came off quite badly on the dirt roads back to the N2.
I think he said his name was Jacques.

I helped get his bike out the road, and called the emergency number we were given, but didn't wait for the bakkie to arrive bacause a farmer had come and promissed to stay with him.
It seemed like he bust his colar bone & maybe a rib. Aslo some minor cosmetic damage to the bike.

Anyway buddy, I hope you're on the mend and your wife wasn't too pissed with you.
All the best & sorry I didn't stay.

You were also behind me (a Jacques on a 990) when I had a "liggiese neerslet" and collected my crashbar bag that came off. Thanks a lot.

Ek is nie skaam nie julle kan maar post het ook daar 2 keer bike laat vrek met die manne wat om tuimel rondom ons.

Sjoe om nog n jaar te wag is amper te lank maar dit is elke keer lekker.

Hey there Guys & Gals.

Been a pretty busy past few days on my side & have been trying to squeeze in some time in between everything in order to try work through all my footage I captured on my helmet camera on the Canola Run this past Saturday.

Well.... I've finally managed to work through it all & have extracted a little over 1000 photos in total  ;D ;D

I know that everyone likes to enjoy the ride & doesn't always either "have the time to stop, or not able to stop" along the route in order to capture some photos of each other.....so I thought that I'd just let my helmet camera run the entire time for all Loops & tried to capture footage of as many of you guys & gals as possible.  ;D :thumleft:  Apologies if I somehow missed a few of you guys & gals......but I think I somehow managed to get almost everyone somewhere during/along the ride.

My internet connection is really really really slow here.....but I'm gonna try start uploading as much as possible now tonight & see how far I get.

I stopped to pick it up & tie it on the back of my scooter (which BTW.... I did a really crap attempt at "securing it correctly"...as you'll see later on quite a bit further down the road :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: )

While I had stopped here.... I thought I'd make use of the opportunity to try get a few photos of all you fellow riders as you pasted by while I was securing the 1150's seat.

3 - View from the top
4 - Queue while waiting for someone to finish playing in the mud

As I was approaching this bakkie parked near this gate....a guy standing behind it shouted to me "...that there was a loose rope hanging from my bike"  :o :o

As I stopped.... I noticed a "missing AWOL 1150 seat"  :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:

Well.....one thing was for sure..... I obviously did a really Crap job of securing earlier on after picking it up the first time :patch: ;D ;D

I proceeded to get the loose rope of  my scooter & snapped a few shots again of some of the riders.

Just a few minutes later.... No "All Gold Tomato Sauce" 36'ssssss stopped right behind me to reveal the "Once AGAIN....lost 1150GS seat"  :lol8: :lol8:
 
Thanks buddy for picking it up.  :thumleft: :thumleft:

I did make sure that I secured it VERY well this time round & confirm that it made it all the way to the "PitStop" on top of the hill at the end of the 1st round where I handed it in to the organisers.  ;)

Tienie did make an announcement at the end of the 2nd loop about the AWOL seat. I trust the owner came forward to collect it ;)

I got this email  today. I would like to hear your comments............



SHOCKING behaviour from your 2017 Canola Run participants. I was with a small group of mountain bikers cycling the back roads when we twice encountered your participants. On both occasions we were forced off the road - or risk being flattened by aggressive dicks on bikes. They took up the whole road and accelerated straight at us to force us off the road. There was obvious malice in their domination of the entire road (including our side) and the body language and driving style made it clear that we were to get out of their way or face physical harm. My wife was forced to jump off her bicycle (she was on her side of the road) and fell off she was so frightened. On one occasion one ape did a windgat sideways skid into our lane to spray dust all over us, laughing as he did so. Disgusted. This event should not be permitted on public roads. You bunch of barbarians.

This is upsetting to read of this kind of behaviour  (if it is indeed true/correct)

I can confirm that there was no such behaviour from the group of guys that were riding with me as we passed a group of cyclists  (could well be same group as per the photos I posted earlier in this thread). I have the footage from when we passed them (in an accommodating manner) on video from my helmet camera.

Sad indeed that the entire "Canola Run" event can get bad publicity of this nature caused by a few minority of riders that may have indeed been guilty of this claim from Simon.

I feel that if there were riders taking part in this event did indeed do this, who hopefully read this.....please take ownership of your actions & do the right thing by paying the appropriate apologies.

Just my 2C worth.

Encountered them at a very steep downhill after a right turn. Come round turn and bicycles in front of you.

Everyone I saw gave them a wide berth and a few wave/greet/nods.

I don't see reasoning with someone like that bringing anything. He immediately resorts no generalisation, name calling and insults. Steer clear of him.

The thing is that giving someone a gap that some classify as big might be too close for others , and a lot of the terrain we rode on was almost blind and if you come across them at speed around a blind bend then it could get close , so in all reality it could well be a situation like that where it is not intentional at all .

Baie dankie vir die fotos. Dit lyk baie mooi.

Die oom en tannie op die fiets kan gaan BOLLIE .Ons het vir hulle gegroet en gewaai.

Hulle het nogal ewe  :). Mr Espley het nie registrasie betaal nie en mag nie daar gery het nie ek het nie en bandjie om hulle arms gesien nie.

Vergeet nou maar van hulle - dankie vir n reuse suksesvolle dag en almal se hulp om dit so lekker te maak.

Groete

Ons het omtrent heel agter gery met die klein bikes en die fietsryers het nog geglimlag toe ons verby hulle is.
Iemand agter ons moes dus die oompie ontstel het.
Of hy het eers later kwaad geword toe hy op n veilige afstand was.

The group we were riding with gave them a wide berth , even waving at them , from Bring it on's footage it looks to be the same .

I think I waved, I generally do, and we did give them a wide berth, but I remember they didn't look very happy - no smiles, no waves back. Could be because they were negotiating rocky downhill as well, though.
