the ride

 It all started with my dad yelling at me because it was the levin dirt bike ride was on.I didint want to miss that opportunity.My uncle finally came round so we could put my bike on and i was off to levin.

When we got to otaki we stopped to get some fuel and food that would last us the day. Finally we arrived at Levin just on time for the briefing. We went over to the tent and they told us what arrows were what and the main hazards like bull holes, mud bags, Jums etc.

When we got back to the car we got our gear on checked. we had everything warmed the motorbikes up and we went. The first 15 km was easy until we go to the bags and hills where there were heaps of people had fallen off. So my uncle and I went up the grass hill which was so steep I enarly felt off the which back.

As i reashed the finishing point i was about a minute from running out of petrol.We were all fine and happy that we finished.
