We are a group of friends that wants to cycle from Bloemfontein to Cape Town next year. 26 Feb - 06 March 2012

 

EDIT: We need 4-6 people to join as some of the people that were going with cancelled.

Any hubbers that would like to join our "Cycle Tour" PM me your email adress and I will send you further details.

(Edited 15-11-2011)

 

Could someone that did someting similar maybe give me some tips? What to do, what not to do and some training tips, as one tends to get lazy during the cold winter months.

I did it from PE to Cape Town.Had 1 day rest and i never felt that good on a bike again.

 

Took 10 days to cover 795 km.

 

Stay off main roads,take lots of spare tubes and tyres.Spare chain will also help.Depending on how many you are let traffic dept know when you will be in there area.

 

Hope you will have a back up car with you.

 

Where will you be eating and sleeping at night?

Thanx, Found FRAIL and mailed him. Awaiting his reply.

Anyone else?

 

I think he has more 'traveling' experience than anyone here on the hub..... flip, I think he does more mileage than some teams do! :clap: :clap:

What did FRAIL do the ride from Cape Town to Joburg in? Something like 4 days - then the 94.7 (or 97.4, whatever) twice, then rode on back the next day. Bloem's an afternoon's outing for him ... but don't let that put you off. It's something the rest of us would love to do.

Well you have 7 months if you start Training now?

 

I dont know if You/ Group has any Work/ School commitments?

 

1000km over how many days? I HAVE ALWAYS DONE MY TRIPS OVER A SHORT TIME. BECAUSE WORK/ LEAVE ALLOWABLE.

Stops/ Days. More Stops/ Days = Needs more budget.

 

Road Bike/ MTB. What bikes will you/ Group be using? I WOULD SUGGEST ALL USING ONLY ONE. SAVES ON THE AMOUNT OF SPARES YOU NEED TO CARRY/ TUBES/ TYRES/ CHAIN.
