Greetings Fellow Riders,
Wow has this year flown by! On Sunday, 12 October, we hosted another fun ride which had a lot of new terrain and the most perfect riding weather ever. For those of you who joined us I think that you will agree that the day was perfect – not too hot, no dust and no queues! The track was slightly longer than usual and at least 2/3 was on brand new terrain.
Let us go back a couple of months. Since our last newsletter in May we have hosted 2 fun rides and some guided rides which are always such fun. Our July fun ride saw a full field of riders tackling a very dusty and dry track.
The intermediate track was relatively easy for most riders who enjoyed the many jumps and banks.
Even our Marshalls had time to get airborne!
Gerald Preston showing us why his front wheels lasts so long!
Young Adam was the youngest rider to ride the intermediate route – here he is enjoying a “break”
Here a rider comes blasting up the hill from the advanced and very advanced sections.
The very advanced section had a series of small “cascades” which riders had to navigate. I think the pictures speak for themselves.
The well-known saying “I get by with a little help from my friends” took on a whole new meaning up this section.
Looking up the most difficult of the cascades.
“Thumbs up”- I think that was before the unsuspecting rider saw what was waiting for him a little further up the stream.
All in all, the ride was a great success with no serious injuries at all. Rumour has it that there were a few bruised egos left at the cascades but “Hey, who said it was going to be easy?”
That was it for the 2014 Family Fun Rides, but we still have one weekend open for a private/guided ride before Christmas – first in gets it!!!
We always enjoy and take to heart all feedback, so drop us an e-mail and let us know what you looking for in 2015, remember now, feedback that we can perhaps incorporate into our future rides, valuable input for us a family of riders – NOT “too much dust”…. Or “too much mud” – we ride big, we ride hard and we take all that it comes with it on the day, so just rub some dirt on it and get back on your bikeJ
Until next time, take it easy and keep on riding.
The Kevard Adventures Team.
