    Hi Dave :thumb

    Basically find the nearest dirt road we can ................... well actually it's less than 5kms away from Magill.

    To quote ..... "As we depart 7am from the Liberty Servo top of Magill Rd, :webers we will leisurely cruise a smooth winding road over a summit and climb a steep, tight dirt track before engrossing ourselves with glorious, fantastic, smooth, undulating, scenic, often loose surfaced, sometimes tight & twisty "rally roads" :wings " .......... probably covered in tree branches after today.

    Depending on time we may fit a loop back around Woodside as well, all in all we should be able to knock over 120+ kms.

    Unfortunately the bakery may miss out though ....................... just remember to tell DRTrev when next you see him ............. it's all about riding dirt & havin' fun isn't it? :poser

    cya in the morning.

    I'll pm my mobile no.

    Was great fun, my first Adenture ride. Didnt like the sand nor did it like me. Didnt fall and hopefully didnt keep MB back too much.

    Looking forward to the next ride...

    FYI. Thinking of either Flinders Ranges or Kangaroo Is this year (September ish). Would be looking for some others to join.

    For sand within one hour try Olsens road between Deep Creek /Tooperang roads or Frome road betwen the continuation of Deep creek road and Currency creek.

    Deep creek road is the the next turn off after Tooperang Road on the Bull Creek road.

    Not a lot but will give you a bit practice.

    Mmm. Well, um, here I am.

    I've been reading this group's (mis)adventures with interest :roflwhich has piqued my own :clap.

    My sole experience so far off-road has been on unsealed roads and tracks found between here and Victor Harbor (found more than I expected since I got lost more often than not). But then I've only had my current set of wheels (actually my only ever wheels) for four weeks - I'm still running it in (1000 km down, 600 to go :beer).

    So I'm putting my hand up :super for any rides (as long as they don't involve getting up at 4am - that's against my religion :rofl). The advantage to having me along is that I'd make everyone else look good :doh

    Cheers,
    Nicholas
