Berakah eco quad trail Quad biking weekend (Winter 2006)

Berakah Quad biking weekend (Winter 2006).

A few weeks ago we went back to the berakah eco trail for another outride.

Even though it was very cold, the trip was still well worth it! We managed to get some great pictures of the farm in winter time, and also in the process converted my fiance's brother and his wife into avid quad bike fanatics. :)

This is the third time we have been to berakah, you can click here for some older photo's of our quad adventures.

We rode the quad bike track for most of Saturday, but a cloud burst drove us indoors at about 4PM and we decided to call it quits for the day.

Sunday's weather was a lot better, and we were out on the track quite early.

Below are some of the pictures that we took the weekend.
Click on any of the images for a bigger version.

It was very cold saturday morning so before the ride we thought it a good idea to warm up the quad bikes first.

I think the picture below will give you a good idea of how cold it was that morning.

Lourens (My fiance's brother) and I set off on the quad trail a few minutes later.

When we got back it was time for the ladies to take to the track.
Here they are before the long  haul all kitted up and ready to go.

Here's Tacha and her Mom after they had crested one of the bigger hills on the trail.

A bit furter down the track the environment changes into a dence forest and you can't think of not stopping to enjoy the view.

Here is Nita (Louren's wife and one of the newly converted quad fanatics) after she climbed a nice rocky section.

Even in winter Berakah offers up some spectacular views that dont nesicarily have to be enjoyed on a quad.
The dad's took a walk in the velt and were spotted by our camera. :)

There are many hidden treasures on the farm that can only be viewed when on foot.
"die kuil" is one of them.
This is an "unofficial" swimming hole that is hidden away quite well behind the undergrowth on this beautifull farm.

Sunday we decided to follow my cuzin (Andre) in his 4x4 on the offroad track to see what they had to drive over / around / through.
The 4x4 below was the one that built the 4x4 track and has clocked the odometer twice!
For those of you wondering what this bakkie used to be, it "was" a Toyota Hilux ;)

4x4 was the one that built the 4x4 track

Below Andre and Chris (his broter) are sliding down the first obstacle that we went through.

What goes up must come down, and in some cases what goes down must come up also, as proven by the two brothers.

And then it was the turn of the quad bikes!! As you can see from the tacks in the sand at the bottom we did this obstacle quite a few times :)  The Rustlers behaved themselves beautifully on this downhill.

The view from the pajero is just as good as on the quad track as you can see below.

About halfway into the 4x4 track there is a big oak that welcomes you to take a rest, have a braai (BBQ) and enjoy the environment.We spent a bit of time relaxing here in the warm sun.

When we got going again, we faced an obstacle that would be extrememly dangerous on a quad bike for the inexperienced, se we decided to go around and wait for the 4x4's.
This obstacle is called elephant hill. Dont be fooled by the cement on the track its there only to protect against soil erosion, and does not make it any easier.

Here are a few pictures of the decent

After a brilliant weekend in the sun (and rain) we packed our belongings and headed home saying our goodbye's to the mighty vaal river.
