Country TRAX Grand Central outride July 2013
« on: July 22, 2013, 10:25:40 am »
As you all know, Country TRAX Grand Central is hosting a monthly outride for the last 16 months or so, and since inception we were pleasantly surprised by the support and attendance we receive from the Wild Dogs.  :thumleft:

Yesterday was no exception. It was a cold morning, and I was thankful for having heated grips on the BMW.  :deal: I saw 2.5 degrees riding past Rietvlei Dam, and thought by myself that this will be a small group ride. Well, I was wrong! As I rode into the fore-court of the Engen garage at R21 Office Park, Irene all I saw was bikes. Bikes filling up, bikes parked all over. I even saw Harleys  ??? ::).



Final count = 24 bikes, 26 people. BIG group = lots of dust = plenty of waiting. All true except the plenty waiting, wow what a great group of people. They were there to RIDE  :ricky: and not to  :sip:. Respect!  :thumleft:



After the "formalities" of who leads and who sweeps and what to do when we turn, we departed. We headed out towards the trusty rail roads, with a detour to skip the new rocks along a portion of the rail road.

We had some fun sections...



... but most of the ride was on good dirt.





We had frequent re-group stops to ensure that everyone stayed with the group.



We even had a water crossing!! :o In the middle of JULY!! >:D







The last picture is one of my favourites.  :thumleft:

We ended at Rafters for a drink and bite.

Thanks to all who joined in.  :thumleft:

See you all again next month.  :ricky:

These are great Herman! I would have loved a photo of riding my scoot through the puddle... perhaps we should take up Giggz on his offer (below) next time?

Nice foto's.  Wie skrik nou vir 'n bietjie koue?
