The annual Christmas trip to Dalby went well as ever with a healthy turnout of 11 riders.

Big thanks to Vern for arranging it, Gil for leading us round and Si for the much needed bacon sanis and brews before we started.
Oh and thanks too to Ben who got me home with 5 minutes to spare before my mrs needed taking to work.

The few pics I took have come out really blurry so hopefully someone else took a few.

Thanks to all who turned out today and I hope you all had a good day.
BIG extra special thankyou to Mr Dalby himself (Gil) for showing us some of the lesser used and off piste trails.

Sorry about the pics I think my camera was having a bad day or it could of been me.

I'm sure there were a few more with camera's so there may be more pics.

The last ride of 2011 and a fantastic end to the year, don't forget it all starts again on the JAN 14th with the superb Ravenscar Railway Ride.

See y'all in 2012 and a Happy New Year 8)

I would like to add my thanks to Gil and vern. It was my first time at both Dalby and with the group and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

They say you can always learn something and my learning point was that I need better tyres for next time ha ha

The post ride food was great in the cafe as was the taster of Verns excellent Sloe Gin

Thanks again and i'm looking forward to the next date im able to get out with the group

I can start trying to remember the few forum names to faces I don't know as I still don't' recognise some of them :lol:
Some pictures came out when in auto, must remember I had set my other option up for longer exposure, inside night time.
