Please note this is not a race but a leisurely ride with a group of friends. 


Please try to arrange for a support driver or someone to take your vehicle to the finish.  

We are able to provide some drivers on a first come, first served basis.  Please email race organiser Peter Goble on triandra@netfocus.co.za if you require help with transport.


There will be two watering holes:  One at Zulu Falls where hot dogs, chocolate milk and water will be available (this is about 50km from Mbona and 30km from Cragieburn dame) and a second at approximately 70km at the top of a very long and challenging climb where water and chocolate milk will be available.  

You need to ensure you have a good supply of water for the rest of the ride.


There will be a support vehicle to collect those who have cycled far enough...


All riders will receive a delicious 100g slab of chocolat Frey for their efforts!
