African Bikers Mountain Bike Tour

by jpc_touring-bicycle

Our final day of biking in South Africa started with a drive to a ritzy seashore city and a stroll to the shore-side. After our fast break from the automobile, we drove for an additional hour or so earlier than arriving at our vacation spot for the day – a big community of mountain bike trails unfold throughout a number of hundred acres of darkish jungle-like crops and sunny seashore aspect surroundings.

The day consisted of two separate rides – one earlier than lunch and one after.

The pre-lunch trip was totally on a mud street that weaved its method up and down by way of a dense jungle-like surroundings. There was one giant hill, which by this time within the tour, I used to be capable of cost up with only a few issues (the tempo of the opposite riders was lastly changing into regular for me).

On the finish of the trip was my favourite half – a protracted downhill single-track path that weaved its method by way of a set of small timber and spit us out close to the principle street, only a brief distance away from the place we’d be consuming lunch.



After we arrived at our lunch spot, Kim (our driver) had organized a picnic lunch for us. We fueled up after which ready for our second bike trip of the day – a barely harder path (consisting of much more single-track) simply on the opposite aspect of the street.


Sandra and Erwin stayed behind whereas Harry and Kirsten took the lead, however Michi, Julia and Steve and I just about stayed collectively. We actually loved this explicit path. On the map we had been given the trip regarded powerful, however it turned out to be probably the most pleasant rides of the whole tour.







One second we have been driving alongside the ocean-side, overlooking the rocks and water beneath… and the subsequent second we have been again within the jungle, leaping over tree roots and crossing over small picket bridges on our full-suspension mountain bikes.


As I returned to the van on the finish of the day, I used to be sort of unhappy, understanding that this had been our final bike trip of the tour. Nobody else mentioned something about it, however I puzzled to myself if the others have been unhappy in regards to the finish of the tour as effectively… or if a few of them is likely to be able to go dwelling.

After packing the bikes on the trailer and climbing again contained in the van, we drove to one more stunning guesthouse and have been every assigned a room.

This explicit guesthouse was one among my favorites on the whole tour. The property was giant, with a pool, a number of totally different flats scattered all through the property, and a comfortable sitting space on the outside patio.







Later that evening we went out dinner at a vigorous native restaurant, the place two musicians carried out only a few ft away from our desk and we chatted with each other about our upcoming tour of the Addo Elephant Park and the tip of our African Bikers biking vacation.
