In the Dumps - Saturday 15th Jan

I had an incredible ride with the Procycle guys on Saturday morning. We met outside the shop at 05:30 and headed to the mine dumps between Benoni and Brakpan. Paul took us on a great route (besides the bundu bashing near the end), lots of single track, a few drop offs and of course loads of water. It was fantastic to ride through the mine dumps - mostly deserted (except for a few 'illegal' miners panning for gold). Great bunch of guys (9 of us in total) and the riding was slow enough to take in the beautiful surroundings.

There were a few obstacles in the way

Beginning when the legs were still fresh

Big machines...
Paul a real man would have bunny hopped that ditch....

Alistair still smiling near the end

Ian passing on some of his wisdom

Yours truly
