On this, my second ride as leader, we had the opportunity to introduce some of our club members to their first dirt roads.

The route was designed to allow for the most novice of gravel riders to enjoy, and from the feedback that was received, achieved the goal.

We met at 07:00 to depart from BP at 07:30 and enjoyed coffee with members and guests.

In total we were 24 riders which included 7 guests.
Roger Smith from Bavarian joined and graciously handled sweep duty. Thank you kind sir!

Dust was our only concern and the group stayed spread out to minimise visibility issues with no incidents to report on any of the sections of dirt we rode on.

Riders were gradually introduced to different and more challenging terrain which included graded dirt highway, shallow patches of sand, rutted roads (hidden by shadows) and even a bit of loose rock in one area.

One small incident at the venue, Nkwe resort, saw a rider miss a hairpin turn and take some rest in the bush. No harm done though and after dismounting our dusty steeds, we enjoyed a picnic and braai whilst sharing stories of the morning.

Thanks again to all that joined us and please share your photos.
