I waited to see if anyone else would take a tumble in the elephant doodoo, but in the end it was only Sir Crashalot
You'd think we should be about done, right?
Sneaky Trent gives Jack an elephant $hit high five at the very end :lol-sign:
The single track went on and on and on and was brilliant fun!
More crashes, more broken bikes; we didn't reach pavement until after dark! This section is a lot steeper than it looks and Trent and I crashed at nearly the same spot-
Funny how flat it looks in the video- it was so steep in fact that folks needed a push to get going again-
A "minor" obstruction on the trail- great teamwork once again as we had to lie the bikes down and drag them under this huge fallen tree, one by one-
Light fading, we press on!
Riding into the setting sun towards Three Pagodas Pass-
So, you'd think after the last vid where we pass through a town, that it would be easy sailing on to Three Pagodas Pass? NOT!
The "trail" follows and dips in and out of a river. I imagine this track would be impassable in the rainy season.
Messin about with Mike on a steep descent, and we encounter the first car we've seen all day-
Lots and lots more water crossings!
My vision sucks in this fading light and I just have to hope there's not a deep hole in this muddy water crossing that's waiting to swallow me and my bike!
We limped in to Three Pagodas Pass well after dark, exhausted and elated!
Trent is looking pretty shattered, he didn't even have energy to chase all the cute smiling Burmese girls that were walking home from work :lol:
The fellow on the XR was one of the last to arrive and, out of sheer exhaustion I guess, fell over in a heap when he stopped! :crazy:
We had skipped lunch today and everyone was starving! Fortunately the restaurant Jack chose served up huge portions of good grub! :thumbup:
