New trail

A couple of weeks ago I posted about trying to climb Mnt Meru and coming down a nice trail along a deep ravine.

I was hankering for a long slow ride but Thomas and Dave were having none of it.  The showed up around 0730 and we went up the mountain and i suggested we try to ride up this new trail.

We could only ride about half of the 2 km new  track.  It was not only steep but slippery as grease.

However it was well worth , old forest, colobus monkeys, birds galore .  After leaving the road we didn't meet anyone on this track until we popped out on a forest road about 2200.  I was talking about what we do if we meet a forest guard and then a Meru Forest vehicle comes up to us.  He just says hello, have a good time.  Maybe he was an accountant.

We stayed on the forest road and had long descent to the ring road, then single track to ngaremtoni.  Great ride.
