  1. We had 14 Scandinavian mid-distance and cross-country athletes here at the backpackers over Dec'16/Jan'17. They spent 3 weeks working through a grueling altitude training regime, one of four altitude sessions per year for them. I am often asked by our cycling guests what the benefits are of altitude training other than increased red blood cell and oxygen advantages. Answers after a few Google searches have varied. Personally, living at 2100m above sea level makes me feel like a champ when I'm at lower alt. First day/night or two at lower alt, I feel like the Duracell bunny. What is your take?
  2. Did the unthinkable, Sold everything here in GP, bought a log cabin in Dullstroom and starting up a MTB-centric backpackers in Aug/Sept this year. Looking for your valuable input into what you'd expect from such a place when you visit. I backpacked across the globe for some years, but only started MTB'ing again in 2012, so I'd appreciate some suggestions to tip the scales evenly and create a place where MTB'ers would feel at home. Sorted so far: - Local trails and friends with farmers for the "unbeaten track" routes - Bike wash bay + free lubricants - Secure lock-up facilities - Small selection of parts/clothing/accessories - Repair specialist in town - Transportation to/from pic-up/drop-off locations - Emergency stand by - Entertainment, awesome vibe, small bar, super comfy sleeping, great view. - Free additional red blood cells when you do altitude training for your enduro races ;-) (Dullies sits at 2100m above sea level) Any suggestions would be awesome. Happy dayz!
