Hi Peeps

 

Sorry for the late update. Work was upon as too soon but here are a few pics to show you how it went.

 

See http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=317896&id=519477288 for more photos.

 

Overall a great experience, we learnt a few lessons on our first trip but have come out wizer and already plannig our next trip. Up here in Gauteng we don't really see that much touring but I was pleasantly surprised with the people we saw along the route, the hospitality of the places we stayed and just the overall friendliness we encountered along the way. When doing races we tend to be too focussed in reaching a goal or time we anticipated, but often we forget the pure pleasure of just riding your bike and even more so if it's your primary transportation. But this time we definately didn't miss the gemsbokke running along with us or the many raptors we saw along the way. Remeber Mtb'ing is like French culture, the more the Americans strive to understand it the less they do.
