Calling a OVT ride this Sunday

Meet at 8:30 on the bike by 9:00

About 200kms of sand mostly open flowing trails

Will need a fuel range of around 100 to 120kms of sand riding

We will be stopping in Seabird for fuel and lunch

This will be a bit of a recon ride for the JB500 2 day jurien bay ride in September

All welcome
Please post or tex if you coming or would like more information
Cheers Inver

Ok I think we have 3 now so the ride is on for Sat, meet at the lakes road house and will be leaving at 8:00 to drive to the park up. Ride will be around 85klm and mainly single with a bit of exploring while mapping out the new track. Bring some beer and a rain jacket just in case.

Good work on the ride boys! Can you hit the same trails every week for us so that we don't have to get so wet when we mark it out lol

So all the flowing open tracks I surmised we'd be riding turned into very overgrown guesswork with trees down everywhere.
We honed our skills on slippery tracks, slippery logs, boggy peat, & water, so much water.
As the guys said, I can't believe how wet we got on a sunny day. Every bush shed its gallons of water onto us as we bashed our way through old tracks that haven't seen bikes in a long long time. Every downed tree meant finding a way passed which meant more water down our necks.
My hands were dyed black from my gloves, I poured at least 300ml of water out of each boot but it was a great ride regardless

Thanks to Jnr & Tommy for a good ride & yes my fire was still burning when I got home so I got warm quickly.

I'll say it again, there are so many unused & old tracks down here.

Thanks to Pounce for leading the ride on a nice dry Sunday morning the fast open tracks that you promised will be good fun IF you ever find then lol
I have never been so wet riding a bike on a lovely dry day and not falling of on a river crossing
Bashing through the virgin bush with all the rain still on the leaves was good fun and every time we had to hop over fallen wet logs it was 50 50 that it was going to end wrong, but no one got hurt and it was entertaining we cut the ride short as we were all soaking wet and getting cold a few beers after then the drive home.
A special thanks to JNR for taking me down and bringing me home

Sunday.
Riding down my way, it will be a bit experimental as I'm looking at the below track to see what it's like.
Leaving mine around 9am but prefer earlier if you can get here before then.
It's around 80k's, we've done some of it but I think most of it is open trails from what I can suss.

I have the route that was planned for the 4 day enduro that was supposed to happen last year around my area if we want to try that.
I can't guarantee what it will be like but we can have a crack at it.
