So some of the local lads here indicated here in PE that they were looking for a ride that wasn't too technical with lekker views and a brekkie stop..I had done the coastal gravel to Alexandria and Boknes a looong time ago so i thought what the heck, besides i needed some bonding time with the laaitjie (Jason - Kneukel jnr). Wilddogs Genie, Daffyd also joined along with some non Dogs.. BMW club okes  :biggrin:

So we all met nice and early on Sunday morning at Sundays river, filled the scoots and headed to the start of the gravel (Kinkelbos Police station) . All in all we were around 9 bikes..all BM except for Genie on his AT..

Cruised gravel to just before Alexandria where we stopped at Tamjazi, a nice padstal for a brekkie.After brekkie we headed to Boknes via the Woody Cape section of the Addo national park where we stopped to admire the ocean and take some pics.

From here we rode back to Alexandria. At Alexandria we decided to not do the two more loops (route 3 and 4) in the attached as time had caught us after the 2 x 800's bothe sufefred from flat wheels. ( Kneukel Jnr's rear and Dathyns front) ..at least all the tools were present as well as an skilled non Dog to assist in tyre changes..a first for the two as well as for me.. :deal:

I wont type much but rather post the pics of the day..

At he brekki stop we bumped into BMWPE and Fisheagle  :3some:

Random pics taken by myself and the other ouens..

Ag, no probs. Actually I'd ridden the previous day.  A dozen of the Sat,Am. breakfast gang rode to Tolbos Patensie, and then the group split, with seven gentlemen of a certain vintage riding home on the Elands river valley dirt road. After the previous weekend's heavy rain I was expecting to find the bakkies had chowed the road into a lot of ruts, but not so. In fact I don't think I've seen that road in a better condition.

Anyway, I'm always up for a local ride whenever there's one going.
