Geelbek Challenge
« on: May 12, 2006, 08:20:44 am »
Ons het toe die langeverwagte Geelbek naweek gehad.

Ons het Saterdag oggend 6:00 uit die Kaap vertrek na Laingsburg (in die Kaap is dit daai tyd nog donker). Ons het manne langs die pad ontmoet totdat ons 11 stuks en voltallig was. Nadat ons vir koffie gestop het op Towsrivier het ons so net na 9:30 in Laingsburg aangekom waar ons ons vriende van George (12 Bikes) ontmoet het.



Dawie (die gasheer) het ons verwelkom en die groep van 25 fietse het gesplit vir die "rooi roete" en die "groen roete".

Die rooiroete ouens is eers na die Geelbek huis toe om ons bagasie daar af te laai
Foto van die huis (met die recce 'n paar weke tevore)


Ek het die rooi roete gedoen - en hier is die storie.

Net nadat ons die bagasie afgelaai het is ons met die paadjie uit en halfpad deur die rivierkruising . . .


skree Dawie - GAAN LINKS . . .


Vir 40 meter kon jy net 2 meter voor jou sien. Ons moes deur die riete bundu bash en toe kom ons anderkant uit


Die volgende 8 km was lekker rivier bed. Eerste paar honderd meter was nat maar daarna lekker Karoo rivier bed sand.




Na sowat 'n uur en 'n half later het ons gestop om middagete te geniet



Die braaier

En die vreters



En toe neem ons die lang pad terug Geelbek-huis toe


oor buurman se werf

terug Dawie se plaas toe





Na 'n lekker pot wat Dawie en Krisjan vir ons georganize het ons die Saterdag aand lekker om die vuur gekuier en orals geslaap



Sondag oggend het ons na koffie en beskuit opgepak en die pad terug huistoe aangepak.



Die pad was maar lekker morsig, plek-plek



En op ander plekke weer baie mooi



Klein ongelukkie gehad op pad, gelukkig nie baie ernstig nie


Op Ceres gestop om bande te pomp


En na ete het almal huiswaarts gekeer. Nog 'n lekker naweek - Saterdag oggend uit en Sondag aand terug - 'n maklike en 'n moeilike roete om vir almal se smake en voorkeure te cater. (Sien die res van die foto's op www.odm.smugmug.com/gallery/1438678/1)

Lekker man, dankie!

The ADV had a crash with little damage, cos they are built like a brick shithouse!
Bet it damaged the road.

And me! What about me?!!! Me! Me! Me!

Jislaaik, I havent' had such fun since me and an old girlfriend went and explored that little alley behind Bourboun Str. in Potch at varsity.

Although I did sweat and pant slightly more this weekend. :twisted:

Leon en Dawie en almal - namens die Feeskomitee, die ACVV, die Kinderkrans en die Sakekamer, wil ek julle bedank vir 'n befokte outing.

Ja. LITO is off to the side admiring his own bike as per usual.
Check him out, hanging on to his girl, whispering to her: "My bike is much nicer than these Beemers hey?"

LS, if you had a girl like that, you would also be hanging on to her. She is GORGEOUS!! Hey, maybe thats why LITO jaags like hell. The faster he goes, the more she hangs on to him. The truth is out!! LITO likes the feel of boobies pressed up close!!  :D

Truth of the matter is that 4 guys from ODM came individually to Hilde and asked her - ARENT YOU BANG?

She just smiles in her shy way, and says nee.

I am grateful.

When Dawie was doing his "stunt of the weekend" by wheelying that Orange KTM of his up and down the dry dam bed (moersa impressive), I was doing powerslides with Hilde on. My best was 5/6ths lock in 3 different ways on one slide. Hilde has this amazing ability to just emulate my weighting of the pegs and looking where we are going (not where not to go) and does me very proud.

And the second truth is..... she oftens screams with joy to jaag through the puddles and mud and riete and and and again and again and again. Wynand can back me up on that one.

Ps - I was admiring my bike. Hell we were doing well, and having a blast.

It just made me proud of my bike. You gonna piss on that too ritalin?

ps: my pictures of the weekend coming up soon.
