Hi all fellow WD's. This is not your normal ride report---But something that i felt maybe it is the time of year to look back and Reflect on Rides, People we have met time shared together as fellow riders who have the same Passion for Biking in the Great Outdoors( Not talking here of the Tar riders.) :peepwall:

Here goes-----

On any Sunday The popular Newbie-Social rides that have been a great way to meet new dogs and enjoy a day of riding togeter. Or Fix Punctures. Malgat lost his title to Cave Girl at the end of the year. ::)


Then of course the great game drives......Chilled and relaxed ;)

And then there was Windsong in the Waterberg--Just a little bit of SAND---What Sand? We asked Jules and Li
to get a room :peepwall:

Buzz and Liezl
Now Officially Engaged :thumleft: Congrats the two of you.

And then some of the things that just CRACK me up. :imaposer:

Lourens-- you need to take a picture of the GOOD side.

And what can we say about JulesAllways ready for a Pomp Lisa has a way of making him Pomp more than most of us do ??? Call it LUCK ::) or Bad Luck ???

And then there was Legalameetse and too many others to put down. Its getting late and i need to start some Route Planning for my December rides and Recce of new routes.
Here are some of my favourite Scenic Rides.



Well i need to go now--Image Shack does not want to upload tonight--Pity the best needs to be loaded up ??? ???
