Elandsberg in the daylight

The rain came down last night giving us cool overcast conditions. We decided on a late start which tied in nicely with the weather. After a substantial breakfast we headed out of Hofmeyer for 6km before hitting the dirt road with a strong tailwind. Those first 26km to the end of the road flew past. Doug and I realised to our disgust that we had made a navigation error in the race which cost us at least an hour. (Note to other FC riders - ride to the second gate)

The wagon trail was shorter than I remembered and finding the jeep track was easier too. Then it was fast riding until the group split with some going over Baroda Weir while we battled the headwind all the way to town. Now its lunch! Sent from my BlackBerry® wireless device

  1. 'scuse me, but I am back in the big smoke looking to ride and chat, and you are down in the Cape. Is this bad planning or what. When do you return? And I trust you will now be fit to ride the Rockies in July?
