I'm going to SBR on Sunday to work on my climbing skills. :thumbup: The aim is to do 2 laps (3 if I'm feeling good). Start from the carpark at 7am. Any Hubbers going to be doing SBR on Sunday or keen to come along?

Enjoy! I was there last Friday. 1/2 of it is burnt veld now, but still an excellent training ride, that last climb goes on forever.

Does anyone have GPS coordinates of the carpark and a map of the loop? Sounds like something I need to do ASAP!

Didn't see you there Speedracer. Started my ride at 7:12, in what seemed first wheel on the loop. LOTS of wildlife on or next to the tar, red hartebees, springbuck, Rhebuck, chased 3 Jackals down the road, Zebra, wildebees, Eland, Baboons. 2:32 lap, garmin battery died on first km. 0 degrees throughout - great ride.

Hi Rude, only got going at 8! My apologies. Should have taken your mobile. Fantastic ride, but pretty chilly! Hope to catch you next time.
