Moonan Flats ride - a local Aus ride
Firstly, I'd like to apologise for the quality of the pics...I hadn't used the camera for a while and there was issues (with me - not the camera!)
Starting off in Dural and a reasonable stable of willing mounts
Getting a little greasy and time to get the wets on - meanwhile oodeano puts on a little display of walking on slippery roads
At the top of the Watagans - we're up so high you can see the curvature of the earth - plus you can see we've had just a little bit of rain!
34 degrees and time to shed some outer layers
Mmmm - seems we're a bike and rider short. Anyone know what happened to Rigs?
Hey Rigs - you down there mate??
Gees, it was hard enough riding up the bloody hill and now you want me to walk down
oodeano is a champion - puts his life on the line in the call of duty and gets a mud pack at no extra charge
Parents, lock up your kids and barricade the doors - there's freaking monsters about
Ahh, Rigs..there you are - 35 degree temps and a long slog up the side of a very steep hill. Heat exhaustion sets in.
Mate...you did well
Steve showing us how a water crossing should be done. Over the 2 days we went through a serious amount of these.
Barrington national park - a beautiful part of the world
The inmates take a well earned rest
Going down the western side of the Barringtons
Dirt roads and great scenery - does it get any better than this
We make it to Moonan Flats pub and it's time to get serious
A sprinkling of the ADV fleet
Day 2 and not many pics - to busy just riding great roads with great people.
The only time we had time to take any photos - the result of the rains and wind we'd been experiencing over the last few days.
Over all - a fantastic time and many thanks everyone - cheers guys and girls
