Here is the video of today's excursion with a mate from the Himalayan group... well, part of it anyway.
The track was steeper, more corrugated, bumpy and loose than it looks in the video. Watching the play of the handlebars in places is instructive. So much so that Matt plans to inflict it on other poor innocent members of the Himalayan group. The ride was good though. Much fun had by both of us.
A tip for those playing at home - when you can see my handlebars, I'm sitting, when you can't I'm standing, when you can't see the screen, I'm standing and leaning right forward, if you're looking at the sky through a cloud of dust, I've fallen off.
At the end of the ride, I found a piece of gum leaf caught in my camera and you can see where I collected it in the video.

A trip up and around Middle Beach here in South Australia. Flat gravel roads, mangroves, tidal river. It's got it all... though the township is no more than a caravan park and a collection of holiday houses.

A short ride in the Hills near Kersbrook. This little road connects North East Rd to South Para Rd and neatly avoids those tight twisties (that used to be nice but there's too much traffic these days) and the road works on the corner of North East Rd and South Para Rd.
There are quite a few roads in there to explore, which I plan to do in the next week or two.
