ME and MY TREK – Bloemendal ride

It was a beautiful morning. No wind. Sun was shining. It would have been perfect, was it not for the soft “boom boom” in my head from the previous night festivities..... But hey, I was on my bike, on route to Bloemendal, to meet up for some awesome riding with the little racing snake Enzo Grande. Awesome!

We headed out nice and easy through B-Spot and it was quickly clear that the little Italian had some legs and skill. The warm up through B-Spot was over before we knew it and we were up the first hill. Maybe, a bit faster than I was in the mood for, but I wasn't getting dropped by the youngster just yet.

Trek stop at Gugu Zulu memorial spot at Meerendal

It has been a hard week (at my real job) and I was dying to get on my TopFuel 9.8.  Freshly cleaned, serviced and polished, we were raring to rip the trails apart.

So, 3pm, on a windy afternoon and I'm off to my favourite mountain, Dorsberg or more affectionately known as, “Stairway to Heaven” at Meerendal. It was a bit chilly and quite windy, but that did not stop me, for I was in my happy place. Well happy has many faces and being off my bike for a week did not help my cause.
