[QUOTE=waalex;20443117]This sounds like a great ride, and I might be able to get some leave for this. How many people are going at this stage? Can you give me a rough idea of the route?
Thanks[/QUOTE

Hi Alex, no definite starters yet, about 3 riders interested at this point, hoping to drag some of the local riders away from the cappuccino strip, , hey Steve and Rowdy, if not I will be going anyway.
A rough outline of the trip is:
Day 1) Esperance to Israelite Bay
Day 2) 60 km East past Israelite Bay head inland to Balbinya homestead and then onto Booanya Rock.
Day 3) Booanya rock to Balladonia Roadhouse, east along the Eyre Hwy, down to the coast and the Bilbunya Dunes.
Day 4) Bilbunya Dunes back to Israelite Bay via a 100km beach or the Old Telegraph Track, then head to Mount
Ragged,
Day 5) Mount Ragged to Condingup and along the coast to Esperance.

That is a very aprox timetable I expect that you could add another day and late Friday or early Saturday would see us in Esperance.
Hope you can make it, it's still for me the best combination of riding, challenges, history and scenery of all the rides I have done.
Dennis
