WC- New (Old) Roads Reccied
« on: February 02, 2009, 09:59:43 am »
Sunday morning , last minute decision to ride , took me to some roads I had riden before and down a lot of new ones.
I met some mountain bikers , and we swopped some routes info.

Anyway , I found this old track  that has all but been grown over by grass , up an interesting hill( Near Malmsbury) It now just needs a reccie party to explore it.

pic to follow

I also found an alternate dirt road from Malmsbury back to Cape Town , rather than always having to go down the N7 on the way home from our trips.

And a possibility for a ride up a 4x4 trail to the top of the mountain.
I`m just busy negotiating with the farmer to throw in a breakfast and I will have a brand new route to ride.

So who is doing what next Sunday ?

Sounds great, and I'd love to join you, but I've promised to go to the Historic Racing at Killarney next Sunday.  Will try to keep my options open.

I'm very keen to join you if you don't mind! It's always good to know interesting roads not too far from home.

Cheers Gary

Would love to ride but can't be away from home the whole day? Does this rule me out? Can start at dawn's crack ;D and be out until about 1 or 2. Please advise.
Don't sweat the small stuff.
