Our trip to "Die Hel and back"
« on: February 06, 2019, 10:20:51 am »
My wife and i decided to change our usual New Year plans at our holiday house on the Wild Coast and undertake our first major adventure bike ride.
The video's speak for themselves, what an amazing time we had.

With the wife along, it was a more chilled scenic ride, but i estimate it took us 6 hours from the Makkedaat Caves to Patensie. Stopped over at Vero's for roosterbrood and coffee and various stops along the way.
