    Well i decided to head out on the bike two up with the misses on this long weekend Monday.

    The weather had been shit for two day and we had our highest monthly rainfall yesterday, hey the suns out now though (not for long).

    Righto i said lets go get that geocache i have been after for awhile now and check out the old hut at the same time.

    Ride map here

    Okay so this trip takes us through the hellyer gorge and then into the bush at Parrawe on Blackwells Rd.

    Then we encounter this little tree, I had to make some room around this one.This was expected as the Gorge was covered in wind blown debris

    Then we go about 100mtr around the corner and find this bugga, missus is new to all this so you can imagine what im gettin.

    Great report & nice photos mate.

    I was down from Sydney around that area earlier this year and it's definitely one of the nicest spots around Tasi to ride a bike :)

    Thanks for sharing :clap
