Just like cycling fitness, partying  and drinking requires training too to stay ahead. Otherwise you’ll just crash and burn like a nun that walked into woodstock. 

I am totally aware of the drinking requires training too !!! Maybe this is where i am out of my depth , any kind of alcohol stuffs me up completely, i think i had my fair share when studying many moons ago!!!😁

It helps if you have a few good mates doing the event with you.. sharing warstories from the race over a few beers afterwards will get your spirit back up quickly!

At the previous Karoo2Coast we spent just over 4 hours on the bike, and close to 6 hours in the beer tent afterwards..but there a bottle of tequila got involved at some point.

I will have to work on my socializing skills........have a few non alcoholic beers etc etc !!!😅 😅 Thanks for the advice!!

Hi ACE Cycles , when doing my longer training rides(3-4 hours) i normally take water and a banana, we will stop halfway and do a coffee and scone , when home i will have the usual chocolate milk and then a normal lunch or what ever. I am never that stuffed after my long rides compared to doing a "race/adventure". I am open for suggestions , i did take Game on Ride the Karroo and we indulge  at every water point........... 

Never underestimate nutrition before, during and after training or racing.  It will have a huge impact on performance and recovery.  For example my training partner for Baviaans is a extreme banter and carbs is in the same category as the anti christ. He struggled to keep up after a couple of weeks after hard days and back to back endurance rides and after convincing him to follow a more balanced diet with good carbs his performance literally sky rocketed.

Likewise man! I'm a proper lightweight! I literally smell alcohol and I fall over. Non-alcoholic beer for the win! Same great taste and no nasty effect. 😀

W2W won't go to the Houwteq side of the N2 where the squatter camp is. They'll go from Houw Hoek to Paul Cluver and just stay on the Mountain's side of the road and will be fine. 

TBH I don't think W2W has been in the affected Lebanon trails in years. 

The day 2 route map shows otherwise

Looking at the Facebook page it appears as though Lebanon Trails are now permanently closed due to the landgrab. Very sad. I started noticing the shacks when I drove past at the end of June. Couple of the comments seem quite alarmist around it being the beginning of the end of MTB in Grabouw since the landgrabs are set to continue unabated... Must have the organizer's somewhat concerned as events like this could threaten the safety for riders and the event longer term...

Guess question is now how they will mix up Day 2 without that extra loop around Lebanon Trails?

Jeez. That goes either around the edge of Knoflokskraal, or through some of it. 

Well we'll know for sure after W2W, but I sure as he'll wouldn't ride that side of the N2 on my own anymore.

The High court apparently granted a interdict today for the removal of all unoccupied structures and any further shacks being erected. The municipality is looking for alternative land to house to current land grabbers.  The danger however is protest action that will probably follow
