This is the fourth year of the Kildale cake run and its the simplest ride for me to organise, as its my back yard.
The route is different every year as trail conditions and weather dictate which way we go to the cake shop,
this year was dry and dusty but a little overcast.

I'll let the pics tell the tail....

Lovely cake vern. thanks for the ride too :wink: probably the best route i've been on round those parts, really enjoyable single-track.

Me and stu had a easy drive up from our end with quiet roads just the odd mercaudibmwporschetosser that wants to get round everything, even at 140mph.

The DBR axis was a good performer today with no mechanicals but, a front puncture only discovered back home. A bloody drawing pin of all things to flatten my tube! where did that come from? :lol:

Bad news for the fellow on the karate monkey monkey that had a freehub body simply die, putting his journey to a short and abrupt end at the tea shop. poor guy, a failure that is near impossible to recover from.

thanks to everyone for attending, 10 bodies in total and it was all good fun and banter all the way. All the 15 miles of it. Any warmer and it may have been uncomfortable, just goes to show that we are near-acclimatised to the terrible winter that is(hopefully) behind us. :)


some pics.

Fantastic day out, loved every minute of it, I think I may of cursed Andy's Karate Monkey by talking about a dodgy free hub body on my Diamond Back and then having a go on His bike :oops: Uncle Jack I hope your knee is OK, it was good to see Steve at the Monument, loved the single track, and in particular beating the guy on his full susser who had tried to barge his way past us :twisted: :twisted:
Myself and Marc had a steady drive back with no traffic issues, looking forward to the next ride as always.
