« on: April 13, 2008, 08:09:21 pm »
Went to De Wildt with a old riding buddy who brought 2 newbies with and to show Splash what a easy section of De Wildt was like ;D Started at the old Police station ??? that no longer exists ;D Took a run up the water tower road and along the easy hoop section to the other resovoir and then to the ROCK ::) Some pics of my friend helping the newbies down at the water Tower. Some pics at the ROCK. man the view was just so awesome today ;) The locals now have Sherpa's helping the bikers ;D

DeWildt made an interesting change from the usual dirt roads - I had to also have a look. Some easy routes where found and I had a blast. Magnificent to ride my bike in that sort of terrain. It just made for having fun. I was not that sure about the initial road down from the reservoir. Did not help that I was bumped by a rider eager to get past me. A few additional scratches unfortunately. The Rock was intimidating and I admit to being a bit pleased that I walked up rather than tried my luck on a bike. Next time, I may be a little braver.
