AND...........THEY DID IT!!!!

Well Done Team 2014!!!
Great job!

Grey skies but high spirits! The Team exhausted but celebrating with drinks and smiles :-)

Fit? ..... you haven't see fit!

"I never thought I would do anything like this. I'm the fittest I have ever been in my life" ZDL at lunch today. Fish on the Rocks. Huit Bay.

Now that's a view!!!

DAY 5: The final Stretch

Bikers: Fish Hoek to Camps Bay


Today is a classic Cape Peninsula Cycle past Simonstown, Boulder’s Beach, Scarborough, Kommetjie, Noordhoek, Chapmans Peak and Hout Bay to Camps Bay, where the bikers meet up with the hikers coming down off Table Mountain ending the day with a final celebration dinner...

Hikers: Fish Hoek to Camps Bay


Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. After a short walk through the gardens they head out on their hike.There are 2 options here:

1 – over the top via Smuts Track and Maclears Beacon to the western table and then down Platteklip Gorge. This is a strenuous 6hr hike .

Or 2 –a different route around the contour path bringing them around to the lower cable station, where they meet up with the bikers for a dramatic final photo in the shadow of the famous table!

Which one will they take….hmmm

Tough Day at the office?

Day 4 - J-Mac descrbies for us....

Day 4 was the toughest day so far. We were all exhausted from a gruelling day 3 and although the distance 53k and terrain were accommodating, we rode directly in to the wind all day long. Even downhill was a struggle! We finished the ride with a burger in Maplas by the river and then drove 3 hours to Boulder Bay. Penguins were spotted and we had a quick swim in the icy waters. Final day today. 70km to Cape Town via a couple of beers at MFC's request in Camps Bay. Sadly the wind looks to be against us again today so suspect it will tough!!

Hikers Day 4: Marloth Nature Reserve


Marloth Nature Reserve lies in the majestic Swellendam mountains, between the towns of Swellendam, Ashton, Barrydale and Suurbraak. The reserve is 14 123 ha in extent and is managed together with another 16 532 ha of privately owned proclaimed mountain catchment land.

Horses but where are the elephants?
What is that in the road ahead?
Good to see our chaps are drinking plenty of....water?
 Insect eating plant!
 Big Locust!

Bikers Day 4: Honeywood to Malgas to Fish Hoek

55km today!

After yesterday’s rolling hills and grilling 5km climb at the end its a downhill start today through the green grainlands going down to the Breede River and a unusual crossing, which is on a pontoon pulled across by hand - the only human powered pontoon in the country.

Then onto Fish Hoek on the False Bay coastline, where they will overnight near the ocean, well poised to tackle their last spectacular ride around the Cape Peninsula and into Cape Town!

Team Photo and ready to go...except one person missing. (Apparently doing their makeup)

A lovely picture of the Cripps Sears quartet!
