Dawn to Dusk ride

Post by Flintlock » Tue Oct 01, 2019 6:03 pm

Took advantage of the mild weather and headed out yesterday. Left the house at 7.30 am and headed to Dungannon via Portadown and Moy on fog covered roads. Met up at Dungannon with a fellow ABR and headed through Ballygawley, Carrickmore, Lough Macrory and Mountfield, then into the Sperrins

A small fast flowing river presented itself half way along. Stopped to sus it out and found the bike beginning to sink in the sand!! - so no choice but to plough on, luckly the GS got me across with no dramas.
