Nevermind Cappy, it doesn't look like they rode anywhere. I think they just went to pose for one piccie. Of course, I'd like to be proven wrong by SOME MORE PICS!

Here's a google image of the route we did.
We started at The Hunter Retreat Hotel and Rone took us straight into the bush after we did a lap of the BMX track.
From there we did some awesome technical riding all the way to Mission Road. The road was mainly jeep and quad tracks and Rone got stuck in one of the ruts made by the quads.

We went straight over mission road past the Oval Raceway hoping to cut across the valley to the radio control field but the downhillâ??s and uphillâ??s was a bit much. Thump called and met us in Mission Road. We followed mission road towards cape road and took a nice bush path that led us to Wedgewood estate fence from there we took Cape Road to before the prison and hooked a right and took gravel to the flying club. We watched some planes fly and when the 1st one came over we went to Out of Africa for a beer or 2. We then went to the Van Stadens Train bridge and headed home the gravel way and came out by Homeleigh Farm.

Great ride!!!!
There are no short cuts to anywhere worth going!
Performance is paramount, niceties only exist if it doesn't affect performance.

Don't rush it, it's helmet time you need, not a destination. Take it easy.

Obviously we all know the reason for that  :imaposer:



Anyway we contiued on our journey after a bit of heave ho!

And came to a destination which posed  a moral dilema!

Should we  >:D or shouldn't we  ???



:imaposer: Bloody mad! We turned around to a new destination...

After a bit of watching the Red Baron trying to chase the poor British home, we again continued on our journey and after a brief stint at Out of Africa (man that bar lady is hot) we carried on to the train bridge at Van Stadens.


Then it was off to Falcon Rock Trading Post for lunch  :drif:

Where the "moffie bikers" insisted on parking their trusty steeds (one of them anyway  ::)) in the shade

The others, not bothered by the heat just made our bikes tougher....

Man what a nice relaxing place for a bite to eat!

Don’t worry about things that aren’t, worry about things that are and your decisions are so much easier to make!

And of course whilst taking nice photos of our lovely ride, poor Fugly did overhear a comment that the only good thing about Fugly taking the pictures is that hes not in them  :o  :imaposer: Looks like Thump didn't want to be either the way he was hiding behind the tree  :thumleft:
