well done on your solo mission and cool ride report. Keep an eye out on the forum for when the guys go ride at the quarry, that will give you some good sand experience :ricky:

Yes, for more than the obvious purpose! Certainly saved the bike from some damage :thumleft:

No way, not at all  :ricky:

I was supposed to ride back-up for the cyclists, so put the panniers on.  In the end they were mostly empty!!

It so cool that you do the tea stops, me too!

I did the Cedarberg thingummy too, only I stayed at Kromrivier - figured Cedarberg Lodge looked far too civilised - the road up the side to Kromriver is a bummer cos so many gates, but makes a nice gravelly ride.

Went up with plastic Kappa panniers.. didn't do any donuts tho.
Cheers!

I am quite sure that both your falls would have been prevented if you opened the throttle a bit.
