Went to mto wa Mbu for the weekend a month ago with bro and wife.
And eventually came to a road on the other side.
Went across the highway this time and tried a good gravel road.
road through farms, and then the road stopped and a trail led through bananas plantation. A very extensive one. don and nashesha turned around to meet the mom's for breakfast. I had gotten up earlier and had breakfast
Road for another hour after getting on the gravel road. Went back all the way on the main gravel road just in time for lunch.
Dina (on right) and Patrick (taking picture) work for me building. They wanted to start bikinig. In the distance is Sune a member of east meru bikers. John is long time bike buddy.
The fastest section on the Lengijave plains.
Sometimes you gotta pee.

Some lifetime events get better. Nashesha and I rode as a team in our annual 2 day mtn bike race. Each day is 50-65 km and around 1000 meters climbing. She did great and had fun. It was dusty and hot. A few more pictures.
Riding up this valley was spectacular.
She rode with me down from Amani to Korogwe, a drop of 600meters. I am happy that she has found a lifetime sport she enjoys.
We also did a leisurely ride one day in the forest around our place.
I have been using the roof top carrier for a year. The trip this week one of the bolts broke. I was able to weld it in Amani mountains and it worked better
- I would weld the axle to the dropouts.
- I need to make another for the new style axles.
- for the rear I stopped using a v channel for the back tyre, it is just cinched down.
- It helps to also cinch down the front fork.
