My birthday - made it to 52! Riding 127km in 14h8min was just a bit long for my current condition and the rest becomes compromised. But a character building experience none the less." Still in the rural area but eventually riding past the huge ZZ2 farms and then up Bothas pass where we found Kliphuis, the ideal overnight stop. Thereafter plantations and dropping down to Haenertsburg. Paul is the stronger rider and went ahead but being a good navigator and with the assistance of a map, still found his way in the dark.
