The second day was always going to be a tough challenge with the added stress of getting to base at Vioolsdrift in time for the rugby.

A good mix of sand , gnarly climbs and good old fashioned adventure riding. Bring it one.

The beautiful  Frontier River Resort our crash spot for night two.

The resort perched up on a hill overlooking the Orange River and Namibia never disappoints. Same applies to Christines legendary catering.


The stunning Frontier River Resort hosted us on the Orange River .

Christine's legendary cooking, great vibe at Tim's bar and a barmy evening was made in even sweater when the Boks gave the mud islanders a 'slap'.

Sadly no good pics of the return leg to Van Rhynsdorp.

A short section of awesome sand twee spoor and a rocky canyon before the easy gravel tracks down south.

The Namaqua  flower season has started , and although early there were already vast fields of colour throughout the trip. cid:8BE7578C-29D5-48EC-B7F2-F807E978E6E4

Sounds like a heatstroke waiting to happen :lol8:

I'd love to join a trip but I wouldn't do that to a group of competent riders. Let me know when you do a NOOB version.
