Mon 29 June – Day 15

Fantastic weather today. We left at 6:30 today but for the first 90 minutes we rode in very heavy mist.  Today was a day of up's and down's with a total ascent of 2150m over 110km. The toughest was a 9km hike up the old 'Ossewa Trail'. It is hard to believe they used to drag of wagons over this mountain. At the top of this is the most spectacular view. You can see the sea near Jeffreys Bay from the one side and the Biviasns Kloof from the otherside. Photos just don't do it justice.


We then rode down the Biviaans kloof reserve. This is some of the most technical downhill riding I have ever done. It was about 4 km of downhill... Awesome!!!!

We estimate that we must have walked almost 15 km today. In spite of that we won the 'immunity challenge' by coming in first again.

Tomorrow is going to be a long day as we are going to try a double again.

Sleeping in Cambria tonight
