Chaps ,

Stefan is quite correct about WFO , polite politically correct name is wide full open , but the actual name the club was christened with back then when men rode off road on bikes with 3 inches of suspension was Wide F#*@king Open .

Some chaps say those words when toiling up hills or paddling through mud and stuff .

The policy is to give a reasonably competent rider on an average bike a solid ride , at an average speed of about 40 km/ hr .

It must be safe and well marked , and as long as you are fit , you will have no problems .

We are hosting a national event at Crieghton on 7 October , please feel free to visit this little farming village and see for your selves .

The events are very popular , because they are well marked and safe . The venues are family friendly , and the sport is run by people passionate about the game , not out there to make a fast buck .

visit the web site www.enduronatalWFO.co.za

But I urge you to visit .

I am planning to do a ride to the event on friday on my DR , basically the route I rode to get to Himeville last weekend . That will be about 260 km , mostly dirt .  Then on the sunday after the event , ride home , some of the way along the route Stefan took chaps this last sunday .

Oh yes , I have actually recently resigned from the board of MSA . Because of the impending move to UK , I am stretched time wise without jumping on planes to Jhb for meetings .

But any one who wants to pop along to watch a real WFO event , you are most welcome .

Visit and watch ?   What about ride?
I will be doing a novice/clubmans WFO sometime.

Good luck with riding with the collar bone. I had a break about 2 months ago, took 4 weeks before I could ride on anything but tar. Only now feeling comfortable offroad.

Sharkey , yes please come along for the ride .

Just keep an open mind , it may be a toughee , and ride the lightest bike you can find .  KTM 200 or KTM 125 ex would be good .

My trusty mountain goat KDX200 will be pressed into action. Must just get 100% riding fit after the collar bone break.

Hey hey , my collar bone is getting better !

My boney is back home , washed all the Lesotho dirt off , tonight we start the rebuild .

Another week or so and I'll be ready for a gentle valley ride of about 140 km .

See you out there !
