Continuing the recent ‘trend’, today’s ride was another ‘ride without a route’. First off I took Manoj to a local ‘off-road’ track. A short local access-road track in the Dawson Forest area. I often go there, when short of time, to play in a ‘controlled’ off road area to ‘practice’. The rain had made the track hard and packed. Very little loose gravel. Halfway along the track, there’s a creek crossing. Due to the rains this section was gated off and closed. A decent run cut short. Another time soon.

We did a couple of runs to shoot video and headed back on the asphalt back roads for a ride to Ballground, GA for a chinwag over some great coffee at Barrel House Coffee. This is fast becoming a ‘required’ stop on our rides!

Good to be back onto some 'tracks' and standing up and riding!
