Alternative:

stage 3: Drakensville - Midmar 160km

stage 4: Midmar - Durban 90 km

 

This is how I did it with club100 last year.

Guys

My training partner and I are planning to do this in the next month as our last long ride before going to France to ride the Paris-Breast-Paris.

Here's the catch - we plan to do it in 2 days.

I went to school with the late Michael Agliotti (married to Frith vd Merwe) and in high school was know to cycle from Boksburg to Durban on a weekend.

Jhb-Heidelberg

Heidelberg-Senekal

Senekal-New- Castle

New-Castle-Ladysmith

Ladysmith-Mooirivier.

Mooirivier- Pietermaritzburg

Pietermaritzburg-Durban

 

This is a Route we did in 2003. A bit of a detour but the roads are quiet and you do not overextend yourself every day.

Germiston Wheelers has an annual tour to Durban, and their route is as follows:

Thursday: Germiston to Reitz (just under 240km)
Friday: Reitz to Bergville (? 175km) or Winterton (? 195km)
Saturday: Bergville(? 190km) or Winteron(? 170km) to Pietermaritzburg
Sunday: Pieternaritzburg to Amanzimtoti (? 105km)

They sleep over in guest houses or hotels each evening and then get to socialize and have a great time reminiscing over the days achievements ? their really is a wonderful sense of camaraderie which develops amongst the touring party.

 

The last day is a bit shorter so as to arrive earlier at the coast, have a swim and some lunch before loading the bikes on the trailers and heading for home in the support vehicles, arriving back some time after <?:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />8pm on Sunday evening.
