Weekend ride through Lee's Valley
« on: 18.11. 2019 05:30 »
Nice day on Sunday so thought I'd do a loop through Lee's valley, 130 km round trip with 70km of that being gravel, with multiple ford and a river crossing which I fell over in and had to wait for the electrics to dry out, some quite big elevation changes but reasonably easy riding which the mighty ATB (All Terrain BSA) took in it's stride, I do find the Avon Speedmaster Mk2 possibly not the best front tyre for it though

G'day Kickaha.
Looks like a beautiful ride. The sort of roads (tracks) my A7 plunger traversed on a daily basis back in the 80's.      A trip over there is on my bucket list.
Cheers

If you think, everything is under control, you are not fast enought.
