Carefree days of cycling. Ride. Rest. Repeat.
Wake-up & breakfast
You wake up around 6am and get ready for the day ahead. Your bicycle is ready and checked from the day before. Enjoy breakfast and head to the start line. Your luggage will be transferred to the finish line while you cycle.
Gather for a pre-ride briefing and update on the road ahead. We set off promptly at the communicated times (usually 8/9am, depending on the venue and speed group) and enjoy the best roads in the Boland.
Be sure to look up and soak up the atmosphere every now and then. Enjoy frequent water points and friendly support staff. Roads are clearly marked on GPX tracks and safety vehicles follow. Your ride captains can assist with basic mechanical issues.
Time to relax. Enjoy a cold beer at the finish. Go for a massage where available. Recover and have something to eat. The rest of the afternoon is yours to explore, take a nap or go for a wine tour.
Dinner starts early. Enjoy fine wine and local cuisine. Some evenings will provide interaction with ride captains and race organisers. Thereafter off to bed for a well-deserved rest and ample sleep before the next stage.
