You guys don't get a lot of punctures on the front tires, hey?

They're not on the ground long enough ;D

Be careful of the words you say.

So this is what Saturday looked like:

First light



First Hill




Then some bridge by the N3


Then a big blank with awesome turf and no photos( bushclown please assist.

And then some serious swimming for some.







Thank fuck I made it ;D


And then some un-drowning


That is it.
Sunday was all the way back, 200km of rain, but it was worth it.

Thank you very much bushclown for putting up with my shit, for feeding us and for giving us a place to stay, also to mountain man, and mad mel for showing us your neck of the woods and to REDRIDER and Mr Kit for coming along.
Thank you and cheers.

Awesome scenery - that part of the world makes me longing for something I don't actually know exist.  Did you guys also took some pics where a bike had TWO wheels on the ground?

I suppose the river wil be a bit more challenging come summer?   >:D
