Some additional observations from the 2014 ride:

  • Aghulas or the Bredasdorp on the return leg make for a good overnight stop for those planning a sleep break along the way.
  • The section from Bonnievale to Bredasdorp is an especially tough stretch. Make sure you carry some extra water and snacks to keep your tank topped up along this part of the route.

This is a challenging ride, but one that a steady pace and firm resolve will overcome. Even with a ferocious headwind for 340km of the 2014 edition we still had 10 out of 11 riders finish. The only rider to withdraw did so due to a stomach bug – his riding partner managing to catch up the clock by the next control and finish in time.
