Successful Route Addition

What a day! There were a number of items on the agenda for this current GPS logging trip and checking out this track was a primary goal. The result was a very successful and enjoyable day on the bike, albeit requiring some serious bike wrestling and bucket loads of sweat!

It's a narrow, technical bush track over private land and leads to some respectable fishing, albeit long walks between each fish. It is a challenging ride and easily ranked as a grade 5, but not only is the challenging riding great, the spectacular destination makes you instantly forget your aching muscles…

The DRZ400 is not a big bike, but on this track it felt big and took a lot of wrestling in the undulating slippery terrain plus keeping the panniers free from the numerous obstacles on the side of the track

There were a handful of small makeshift bridges, the penalty for getting it wrong mean a bike up to the panniers in a bog. Luckily, I avoided that =)
