    Finally got the chance today for a ride out to Pokolbin SF, as mentioned in the Gloucester ride report.
    Left Home early, as I had a bit too do in the afternoon, but after a busy few days at work, I had to get out for a ride to clear the mind.

    My main aim was to get out to Yellow Rock lookout, I hadnt been out there for sometime and was impressed with the trail conditions, much better than I expected.

    I arrived out at the rock at exactly 900 am, and sitting in the warm morning sun it was hard to get back on the bike to leave.

    you can just see the outskirts of Broke and Bulga open cut in the background

    time was marching on so I headed for home, total of 170 ks all up, but a great way to start the day.

    Its views like that that make us go out adventure riding. While I love riding itself, being "out there" is what makes me keep going out.

    Thanks for sharing and inspiring with the photos.

    Cheers
