Lesotho technical 4 day trip (Video and lots of pictures)
« on: February 12, 2019, 01:33:40 pm »
We did a great technical trip in Lesotho the past weekend.

Day 1:  Ficksburg to Katse dam
Day 2:  Katse to Thaba Theka
Day 3:  Thaba Theka to Ramabanta
Day 4:  Ramabanta back home

We wanted to ride unexplored new tracks and gout paths and after spending many many hours on Google Earth I eventually had a general idea of how we would ride. The tracks would include a number of "dry" river beds and other interesting "paths". Needless to say not everything worked out the way we planned it.
I will let the video and photo's tell the story.
