On Friday..
« on: February 04, 2006, 10:24:12 pm »
morning we decided that work must stop at 10am and riding bike is a better choice of work. I mean really.....pull leeez, what's this
working on a Friday anyway? It was the perfect day for riding, hot, humid and overcast.Out from East London to KingWilliams town
straight through to Doubledrift nature reserve.
Carry on along the Fishriver then through Ecca pass to
Grahamstown then Bathurst and back home. 400km of 80%humidity overcast riding. :lol:
 We did not take plenty pics.....riding was to much fun to think of pics. Next time we'll take more.

This is next to the Fishriver, the roads are awesome, sliding and spinning stuff.



The humble beginnings of the Spice girls started in Bathurst.

Oldest Pub in the Eastern Cape,also in Bathurst. The coldest Carlings get served there with Calamari burgers.

They sure have a huge problem with Steelcatepillars, as you can see on this cowling.

Local backpakkers joint....and this with the top 2 pics, is the town of Bathurst.

Awesome area Mich, I have hunted at Dubbeldrift and Tsolwana, love the area.
Wish I had a bike to do it on, those mountains are killer.
