:woohoo: LOTS OF SAND! :woohoo:




....okay, if you're still reading...

It's fun sand, not nasty sand, and it's everywhere so it won't ever surprise you :P
...if you're NOT comfortable with sand, then this route is a great way to GET COMFORTABLE with sand. :+
We start with easy, shallow sand and work our way up, and before you know it you'll be riding dunes like a DAKAR superstar.

That said, route is Orange with some Red bits....most of the Red bits have Orange options to bypass.
Expect lots of singletrack and windy ruts, some water crossings and some steep sections.

Rider Level: This is for intermediate to advanced riders, who are comfortable with technical off road riding. Unfortunately NOT recommended for newbies (there is a green dirt ride arranged for green riders Link: GREEN RIDE )
Pillion friendly: Route is NOT pillion friendly due to some long narrow ruts, too long to ask your pillion to walk around.
GPS traces/Route: GPS track is being finalized and will be posted here before the ride.
Other:

Come join us for a club ride that will leave you with stories to tell at every club night!
