Any dogs riding Wine2Whales this year?
I won't be riding, but will be there to visit and cheer on a couple of people I know.
Enjoy the ride, it's an awesome event and a lekker kuier aswell.

Two weeks time sees myself and some mates doing the Baviaanskloof. Doing a 4 day tour from Willowmore to Patensie then back to Willowmore behind the mountains. I'll post some pics on the trip.

I did the Descent this last weekend, and it was fantastic. It's my second year in a row and I will be back again next year :thumleft:

Bad luck for the two-day Berg and Bush guys, today's race cancelled this morning due to massive amounts water bucketing down from above...
