I made it! It was intense.
Lots of pedaling, cool early mornings, wonderful group of people, camps without water for washing interspersed with luxury lodges that could return laundry in two hours, glorious early morning sunshine and a straight road stretching for ever, lion roaring rather close to one of our bush camps…there is so much that I still have to digest…and photos to edit and post
It was great to ride with Andy and share the joys (?) of camping. I was fairly fit but had none of the endurance of the rest of the group. So I paced myself…now I’m quite sorry I didn’t have another week.
I flew from Windhoek on 23rd as the tour headed south on 800kms of off-road riding. (Andy has already fallen on that right knee!) He’s browner than ever, 100 days fit, and happy.
I’d planned to be at home quietly this week but it’s not to be as unexpectedly, I’ve had to fit in a trip to Ireland. I leave tonight. I’ll get a more detailed update out in the next few days .
