START TIMES & VENUES:
DAY 1: On 13 February 2016 @ 07:00 - Starts at Danger Point Gansbaai
DAY 2: On 14th February2016 @ 08:00 – Starts at Aghulas Lighthouse
Limited entries: ONLY 250 RIDERS ALLOWED. This is an ecologically sensitive area.
The route starts at the historic Danger Point lighthouse near Gansbaai where the famous Birkenhead sank. The route tries to follow the trail that the old wagons used almost a century ago to supply paraffin to the lighthouses.
It will take you along gravel roads, 2 spoor farm trails and through magnificent fynbos via the historic village of Elim to the Agulhas Lighthouse. Route might change due to road works
Part of the route is through privately owned property, only opened to Lighthouse to Lighthouse riders. At the end of the first day you will move closer to the seashore. This last stretch is renowned for its shipwrecks. Be sure not to linger too long because there will be a cut-off time (the incoming tide might be a problem). The lighthouse is in sight and you will cycle at the most southern point of the African continent.
Motorbikes and 4x4 vehicles provide backup. There will be 4 water points along the route (every 20km) and bananas will be supplied at the halfway point.
The overnight stop is at the LAgulahs caravan park where you can enjoy the campfire and a meal of Potjiekos, pasta etc (optional) before a well earned rest. No overnight cost involved, limited family or a friend may accompany you. Provide your own overnight sleeping stuff
Departure after breakfast (optional) is the next morning back to Gansbaai and the descent into Gansbaai with magnificent views over Walker Bay.
Total distance: Approximately 200km. Due to extensive road works on the old route we were forced to deviate partly
