Dear Carinus, Nico and Team,
I am back in KZN and unfortunately back to work, after a wonderful week in your company. I would like to thank you both, as well as all your team for making this trip enjoyable, trouble-free, relaxed and generally a pleasure to have been part of. The group of riders were all great, the support in terms of water points and other back-up was perfect and there is very little to fault. It is unfortunate that the roads became busier the closer the ride got to Stellenbosch, but that is unavoidable. I found the ride quite tough – that is because I am not used to riding these distances day after day, but I feel a real sense of achievement, having gone the full distance.
I wish you every success with future rides and hope to be part of one of them some time. PS, John and myself entered the ride to build up miles for the ride across South Africa (see transafricaadventure.org), staring in early April. We certainly have managed to do so.
