The widening of the road that follows the irrigation canal to the South West of Mae Rim is nearing completion now that the bridge is almost finished

Now back to the paved stuff for a while
IMG_8306.JPG
I am going to ride this track to its end to see how the concreting is coming along

Hilariously by the look of it, what point is there in concreting wider past the telegraph poles?

Back to residential unpaved

Now back through the woods

A pleasant ride with good views

Plenty of mesh there, I guess they are going to finish the job

Here I was happily bombing along without a care in the world when suddenly I noticed there was a crossroads ahead where the Wave is parked and I had to give way.
Luckily the combination of a new front tyre, new front brake pads plus the brake fluid changed to Dot 4 and the brakes all cleaned out meant I just about stopped in time.
Not much traffic using that road anyway but its sods law if I hadnt have stopped something would have come along

Hopefully they will finish the entire road as at the moment it would piss the dirt riders off and isnt suitable for a big bike road trip yet

From a distance I thought it was the ice cream lady and flagged them down
IMG_8321.JPG
They must have wondered what I was doing there

A bit more easy going unpaved was rode
