A most enjoyable report as always droffie! Thanks!
You never post the routes on your reports. Do you guard them as your private roads like a Leprechaun guards his treasure? I will have to try to locate that lekker roads by myself it seems :D

Got a little help from a green man sitting alongside the road.

As to the routes, well, um, I sometimes also have difficulty in finding them again.

You see, I just ride and see a road and follow it to see where it goes.

The firts one is a track alongside the railway line - does not go anywhere except along the track - and there were too many sleepers.
Second track is probably a farm road at the far end of the valley. It ends at an old house with a fox terrier.

The third one is in Worcester, last turn on left going toward De Doorns. Sign Says Brewelskloof. On the right is a dirt road to a quarry. Just before the quarry on the right is another dirt road with a sign that says NO DUMPING, where everybody dumps their garden refuse and building rubble. The road leads around a koppie to a dead end.

The best is to check every road to see where it goes, when you get there find your way back again.  :blob6:  :)

:D cool report! being a student of the unseen university, i think  that you cannot post the routes as you conjure them up while lying :roll: on the couch and then merely transposes them onto digital format :wink:

Awesome photos & roads.
You can always rinse the surface
but the stain will remain.

Actually Wino you have it all wrong!

The TA goes out for the rides, I lie on the couch and watch using a crystal ball. that is why you never see pics of me (or of course it could be that I find it difficult being both in front of and behind the camera at the same instant) cos I'm busy with the Bursar, having dinner. :D
