The day was sooo much fun. My Raleigh is extreme comfortable and I managed to fall only once. No damage to the bike only a bit brused myself.

 

Breakfast was amazing. Thanks to MichH and hubby for getting everything sorted. And thanks to Slowpoke for chocolate cake, very delicious.

Yup was good fun and the breaksfast was delicious as usual. Thanks to MichH for organising, her Hubby for playing Chef again (and doing an excellent job). Slowpoke for the Cake (and we finished it).

 

Thanks also to all that joined us.

Yup that was a rather close call! You can all see that I was quite a distance from the race line, but Flash had some other ideas! I took the photo, lowered the camera, and looked up to see Flash close enough for me to see the whites of his eyes! I only reacted and moved once he was past!

 

In Flash's defense, he says bikes don't turn well in midair! Hehe!

The day dawned cloudy and overcast and miserable with a bit of rain. But a bit of rain never stopped anyone, and we had 12 riders arrive for a day of fun. Mintsauce got a bit lost on his first outing in Jhb, but we quickly set him straight and by 9am we hit the road.

We rode the same route as the 24 hour, here is IanJ's friend Dave coming off the new singletrack

Ah, the loooong uphill. Here is Chilli Pepper pulling ahead of me (I put it down to riding with one hand and taking photos with the other!)

At the dropoff, I played photographer as a good excuse to avoid riding the dropoff myself! Here are some of our brave riders:

Great photos . I see Mampara mentioned something about a little fall he had . Well I was behind him and he more than just a little fall . While flying down the sinle track he went of the trail got hos front wheel into a moewiese hole . Bike stayed behind while he did his superman impersonation . Very lucky not to get badly hurt .
