More from Doug on Day 6 -

Had a leadirly start at 7:00 from Vuvu. The climb up Lehana pass took

about 3:30 hours of hiking with bike over the backpack. It is really

slow going climbing 1000m over 4 km. The view from the top was

breathtaking however the wind was gusting so hard that at times that

it blew us backwards.

We then stopped at Tinahead Lodge for some coffee before doing the

last 30km into Rhodes. There is a spectacular 1200m decent through

some very gnarley switchbacks.

We have just had a fairwell supper for the Ride to Rhodes riders that

are leaving us. Tomorrow is a 6:00 start to Slaapkrantz
