Title: 2019 Canola Run - the route
Post by: ultraflight on September 08, 2019, 02:42:55 pm
Those that missed this year's Canola Run, missed out BIG TIME!
It was an epic day... up to 34C heat, lots of dust, but still an epic ride.
I believe that 290 tickets were pre-sold online, but many more were bought upon arrival.
I am guessing about 420 bikes... can anyone confirm the number of bikes?

Anyway, here is a little video of the actual route as I rode it, with a few photos thrown in.
I tried to add the farm names that we rode through or past, but some names elude me.

The route changes every year.

Most of these roads are on private property and are not accessible except during the Canola Run.

This is indeed what makes this run so special.

Thank you Johnnie Bok and yr fantastic crew for yet another awesome Canola Run.

Although there was no rain this year ,it was still a great route.
I preferred the road a bit wetter, the dust was hectic at times with near no advisability.
But most riders were very considerate when overtaking ,

Even with no rain , there was a very muddy clay pat that the organizers did manage to find so we could all test our new nobbly Tyres, and it put a few bikes down that were tired and that  needed a rest. :ricky:

Thanks also for the Trophy , much appreciated..

And thank you for the great trophy for this oldie on his motorised Zimmer.
Will be back in 2020

Hope the guy that went down by railway lines on the CY- GS 800 is all ok- i was just behind him and it was like a crappy video- just running out of talent/traction on a corner and donnered down a 3m embankment- rider dazed but ok and the GS earned its stripes ;)
Withing 5 seconds we had 10 guys stop to assist helping the man and traffic control on a dusty corner

Awesome day out eating dust. The riding company was great, the views awesome and the chow was good (although I prefered the braai) so it made up for all the dust  :thumleft:

I only managed a few snaps along the way. That's @GJ on his back wheel at the water crossing and @2StrokeDan on the Husky  :thumleft:
Not sure who that was taking the bath  :imaposer: The queue was us waiting to do a red route section which was great fun. I think I passed @Zanie taking a tumble onto the rocks on her Pink Peril Honda at this section, there was a tricky little mud hole lurking in the distance, hope you're okay Zanie?

So who's the oke that bliksemed down the embankment just before the intersection onto the N2 on the way home while climbing off his big KTM? Moer that was funny to watch  :imaposer:

I've got a lot of footage that I also captured on my helmet camera & am currently busy working my way through almost 115GB worth of footage.

I'll be sure to post all the various video clips I put together as soon as I've done all editing.

On Friday afternoon, a few of us rode the entire route as Tienie & his team needed to check that everything was in place & we thought it was a great opportunity to TEST out the Water Crossing as well.. :ricky: :ricky:

In the meantime while I'm busy getting the various video footage sorted.....here's a few photos I've snapped.

Bright & early Saturday morning, Kobus, Donovan, Andre', Brendan & myself headed straight to the PitStop point.
Kobus needed to drop off his Dakar Camper Truck off & then both him & Donovan got kitted up.

My apologies for the late reply @Buff. I've been out of the country on a social media sabbatical holiday, so I couldn't attend the Canola Run. I hope whoever the rider was is ok. Interesting to know that there's another pink bike out there!

Just for interest sake.....this is the difference that it makes.....when a few 100 bikes pass over the same spot of ground  :ricky: :ricky:  :lol8: :lol8:

1st part of clip, was the Friday afternoon, when a we rode the entire route to check that everything was in place....  then the second part was the actual ride on Saturday.
