Railway Reccie
« on: August 30, 2009, 07:29:51 pm »
I decided to go out along the Railway tracks east to Reccie some tracks and roads i have been eyeing for a while---Yes i have NOT ridden them all  ??? Expecially the ones we found that are not on any map or even tracks for Africa. Some of them have been made by farmers and some by locals.
Started at 8.30 nad had a brekkie along the way and back by 12.30 Distance 165km. Nothing much to report except that i have found some cool sections to work into a future ride.

Here are some pics of nearly85--sorry neary85  cooling off. Thank's for joining in T  :mwink:

When I first saw the name of the thread I thought it referred to a really hard type of railway policeman.
