Riding was sublime, pace was fast and we were having a great time. One of the disadvantages of riding like this is that opportunities to take photos are few and far between....... In bigger groups, we tend to wait a while for the back markers to catch up at turn-offs and this obviously allows ample time to take a few snaps. Today I had to settle for taking pics when we stopped for a break or to admire the views. :3some:


Views towards South Africa in the North

I'm still battling a severe fear of heights. Stopping in this spot so that @Just Blip It! could take a pic played havoc on my mind and body and I was just physically unable to look down into the massive erosion donga, which to my estimation must have been about 50m deep.......but in reality it was between 15 and 20 meters deep  :peepwall:

Thanks vir n lekker RR :thumleft:

Ek hou self ook niks van daardie hoogtes.  Kop begin draai  :o
“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"

There's some weird concrete structure/bridge thing just as you leave Bulebmbu towards Piggs Peak.  Last year the guys decided to lead us onto the thing to take pics. It's got a bike sized gap down the middle and a vertical 5 or 6m drop. I was ready to hit somebody for leading me onto that thing I swear. 

Me with the grey boots, not looking down!!! haha
