Joining the Dark&Dirty team for the night rides also meant that at some stage you will have to do a Adventure Race . Once again I did not believe in the whole concept of starting small . I managed to get a team together that also wanted to jump into the deep end .

The only kit we had was bikes and helmets . There was a big scramble to get boats , bags , shoes and all kinds of fancy stuff like a compass and mapboards . Besides a fishing canoe none of us have ever been in a Accord or Assegaai canoe . 

We decided one training session was not a bad idea , just to get the feel for this . This typing is making me sleepy - to be continued !!!
