Epic good wishes and Ride report

From Francois:

Good luck our members Brendan, Nadine and Casper doing the Cape Epic in the coming week. It is a serious challenge – hang in there and enjoy the journey, I will squirm on my couch in front of the TV !!

You guys missed out on a great D&D mtb ride last night, 4 of us took on the trails and did a nice relaxed 26km, weather was great, trails were great (apart for Quadbuster that took my lungs out), no incidents, no mud and not one bundu bash – oupa Gert is becoming a real tour guide. We even did Puffadder (new one for me) and the climb up Heartbreak hill was less tough than The ‘CLIMB’.

Intro ride report March 7, 2013

Arriving at the Moo mall just after 19h00 on another perfect night for riding, I was pleasantly surprised to find Hardy and QT, but unfortunately not dressed for riding. Less pleasant was the fact that there were only three other riders.

After some consideration, we decided to take the chance and do a "standard" Intro ride with a bit extra thrown in by going up The-trail-that-Eric-shall-name and down the quite overgrown trail west of the R 21 after pumping a bit of adrenaline on Ezekiel’s drop-off.

We were back at the start on the strike of nine after another enjoyable ride.
Come on people, you are really missing out by not joining us!
