That mud swamp puddle area was crazy! Glad we made it all through with some help and massive sprays from rear wheels. How about those sandy woops too, you couldn't have made those more fun. Good routes with lots of variety.

We called it "experimental route management"! A few turns here, a track over there, GPS check by Vince and we were away. Didn't help that there was some rally race going on so lots connecting roads were closed.

Mate it was last week on steroids :) We had to make a few snap decisions at times but the result was thoroughly enjoyable. I did warn everyone at the outset that we were gonna get lost and I didn't let them down

Great Sunday ride with Waikiki after a coffee with Jay at Byford. We hit the dirt in the friendly triangle of the Brooktown and Albany hwy area but managed to get pretty south after a few rock mound detours and a some long runs. Decided to head west and make it to SW hwy. GPS died so it was direction by sun to 37 Mile Road, old old trails and a roller coaster dirt construction/logging roads and baaam, into Alcoa mine site.... oops. A few massive dump trucks later we asked a laughing maintenance patrol for the exit and had to be let out the card locked secured gate. Top 5 ride!!

Cheers again cam , really appreciate the hints today just have to head out again to practice.
Learnt how to position myself better on the bike and managed to swing the rear around on a couple of bends , a big "Woohoo" to myself in the helmet
We certainly covered a bit of ground today.
I reckon we need to get a sticker for your bike cam, "don't follow me, I'm lost too"
Oh by the way, I didn't lose any brownie points with the better half, so when are we heading out again ?
