Last week I ended at an empty Moo Mall after not reading that it was actually cancelled. Luckily a few new riders arrived as I was about to head home and the 3 of us decided to head on into the dark. Unfortunately my car keys had a dismount and was almost declared missing. Sending us on a confusing backtrack route which turned out a success as the keys were found.
On our second attempt we had a few battery problems with some lights, but was quickly sorted by Stefan who was trying a new invention. No serious dismounts, except for a big rock that Stefan’s front wheel just didn’t want to get over and sent him over the handlebars causing some great topics for the rest of the ride. We decided to stick to the wider gravel routes and eventually tar routes on our way back.
After a great 26km we arrived back at Irene Village and had some refreshments at the Spur before heading home. What a great Xtra Ride it was indeed.
