Well done to you and the daughter

Julle mense wat hou van bergfietsry , kyk bietjie na die Toere wat ek reel.
Die KKK toer is n week van lekker ry , lekker bly , eet en kuier met goeie akkommodasie .
Dag 1 is George na Knysna 7 Passe pad
dag 2 is Knysna na Uniondale
Dag 3 is Uniondale de Rust
dag 4 is de Rust deur Meiringspoort na Prins Albert.
Dag 5 is rusdag in Prins Albert
dag 6 is Prins Albert na Oudtshoorn oor Swartbergpas.
Dag 7 is Oudtshoorn terug na George.
Dis nie n wedren nie en cater vir alle vlakke van fietsry.
Vanjaar 13 couples wat ry so dis ook lekker saam vakansie en darem iets wat die vrouens kan saam doen.
Ek doen vanjaar toer nr 14 .
Ons begin hierdie Saterdag so nie meer kans vir vanjaar nie maar kyk na die ander

Die Toer se naam is eintlik KusKarooKus en toe begin almal praat van KKK .
Ten minste maak die naam seker ons hoef nie keuring te doen nie .  :imaposer:

Eish - dont tell me about saddle time. I seriously need to get kilos in , but with the sun that sets so early it is very difficult.

I am getting really anxious now about this race. Due to the winter and the new baby in the house I am simply not getting any time in the saddle. I'm basically starting off cycling from the very beginning.

Really hope to start preparations this weekend  :thumleft:

Same for my Louis. Have not been on a bicycle in a very long time.

With the rain and early dark its very difficult to get time in the saddle.
I have since bought a stationary trainer and so I am now spending my evenings sweating while standing still.
