Tracks less travelled - HOT West Vic Ride

9 of us saddled up at our leaders place Saturday morning, ready for an ADV ride out to Western Victoria via some of Jas's long list of back tracks.

Travelled down through the Otways - crisp perfect day for riding.

Some magic riding - we rode a few tracks twice looking for ways through. Headed down to Timboon for fuel. Everyone's tank well and truely spent. Fuel station found and never looked so good

We decided to head down to Peterborough to find a camp. Found one on dusk
A few shot of camp and coast early next morning

We rode from Peterborough - towards the madness that was PortFairy Folk Festival - got out of there quick and hit some harder sandy trails through the State Parks and Forests round Nelson

Some tracking along fence lines

By the Nelson River

JCat loves to push his tyres to the limit - but this ride got caught out - Tyre totally rooted 15kms out of Balmoral

The third day on the bikes saw us tracking via back roads up thru the Grampians, via a place called Moyston ( which looked like it hadn't see any form of moisture for 50 years) and then south east to Skipton, then back to Leopold. Country is so dry - and hot - rode most of the day in 39 degrees celcius.

Grampians in the distance

All glad to finish up an awesome ride -1200ks covered in 3 days.
