So we decided to go camping with the bikes. My first time on the bigger bike, further
than around town. Then the packing began: 1 tent, 2 sleeping bags and pillows, 2 mattresses (old age). Us and the bikes.
 
We got some rain and slept over in Betty‚??s Bay in the holiday house, still camped out on the floor! The next day we went to Hermanus and Stanford. Did some gravel towards Caledon.

Came back on Sunday, well revitalized for another week of work!

Will figure the pix thing out soon - to show as pic in the post and not an attachment.

Great weekend

Side-Chick, if it was only about learning to ride a bike it would be easy, now we have to learn to post pix as well.

Out there where the fun is :



Travel on Gravel hey

This ride report is evolving... Lekka.  :thumleft:

Please try to post the report in the thread rather than in the word doc. I cannot download the doc, dunno if others are also having a problem.

Need some fun, you dress not to get hurt so badly when you fall, but then summer happens........

Pushing the bike... some people only learn when they feel, not by good instruction.... so, D told me not to turn the bike around to the down-hill side of the road, and I didn't listen. He left me to push it out of the ditch, (160kg, more than 3x my weight) and took photo. But, now I look for the level of the road before turning my bike around!  ;)

Good one, guys! :thumleft:

I spotted side-chick's bike in the NOVEMBER 08 thread, but somehow missed this report. Anyway, I passed you guys on entering Kleinmond - that's my valley! I live in Betty's Bay: when you're around there again, give me a shout. I'm always up for some gravel...  :ricky:
