Simon, it sounds like you are becomming a boffin at off road ridding, just like MTBing!
It looks like you guys had lost of fun, nice part of the world to ride arround in and on your doorstep..............

Just a quick recce for a ride I am taking on Friday. Bunch of guy's down from Jhb. I need to find a route from Mtata mountain through to Salt Rock. I have the general direction and route but just have to find some link roads.

Are you doing a ride.

Alfi Cox is doing a ride to Sani as well as Josh on his 950.
Good friends and fresh mud......

I am quite keen to ride, was invited to go on the AC Sani ride, don't think I will though coz it is gonna be too crowded, and I hate crowds.
Think I will do something solo through Tugela valley ending at Zingela.

Enjoy your recce  :ricky:

Getting lost during an adventure is a relative term. It all depends if you're enjoying it.
