Whats News?

  • I don't ride enough anymore. With my new job I do over 2000km a week, but I don't travel. How's that for irony? Good news is that the maps are open. I am just itching for an epic ride. Watch this space...
  • If you are interested in what else I'm up too (work wise) have a look at my Facebook Page. It has updates on new cars tested and when and where my articles will be published (content mostly Afrikaans). 
    • A big thank you to Tracks 4 Africa for their latest set of maps. This will ensure that we never miss a scenic route!
      • I have registered the web address and redirected it here, so now we have an easy to remember, proudly South African web address. A1

      Lets keep the rubber side down.

      What an "alive" life you have. :) And I loved: "

      The Trail riding is an adventurous and thrilling activity to do with great fun and amusement. The rides are excellent with lovely bike trails and it is a daring and courageous activity to do.

      Followed the link in your comment to your site. Fantastic! The terrain reminds me of Big Bend area here in Texas.
