I'm counting the days!

Dexter-morgan, Feb 19 2019 11:25

Entered, and training my backside off, I don't want to hate the experience. SO excited about this.

You gonna love it......and then will want to do all the other lekka events in our part of the world: W2W, Swazi Frontier, 3 Towers, Kalahari challenge.......

Wet Ears, Feb 19 2019 11:30

FOMO!

RocknRolla, Feb 19 2019 11:37

I'm on standby for this one! Always fun to do this one, even better with a group of mates.

That's what I have done  - chose to do Berg&Bush this year as opposed to Sani - not enough leave I tell you!!!

 

But Sani is an awesome race with great vibe, particularly the Adventure and the Notties beer and gin truck

I was about to search a thread on this. 

 

I did the Adventure last year with a guy I never met before. We're mates now. It's amazing what happens when you suffer together.

 

I decided to do this with my wife this year. Told her she HAS to experience that ride. Got her a coach, the works. Don't want to pull into town at 16:55. She has been quite dedicated. She spent 2 hrs on the spinning bike because one of  our kids were a little iffy last night and didn't sleep much and she missed the group ride.

 

Thinking of checklists. I was looking for a power bank today to charge phones and Garmin's.

Any other weird things one should remember?

 

Really looking forward to it :thumbup:

Power bank, wanted to ask this, do we have power to charge at race villages?

I remember from last year there were charging stations, but it was like trying to buy a burger at the cricket. Lots of people had the same idea at the same time. My mate had a power bank that lasted .

Dexter-morgan, Feb 19 2019 12:47

I got myself a 10 000mAH, power bank last year that will go with, maybe see if I can get a solar station to charge that.

Wet Ears, Feb 19 2019 12:55

Power bank charging stations do become a dog show so rather take one or two of your own (power banks not charging stations).

 

Sleeping tablets for first night as a lot of people snoring for the first team and the tents are in very close proximity. Second night in the orchard is not as bad (in my view).

 

Cash for the bar - if you take enough cash you might not need those sleeping tablets!

Stumbled upon this thread yesterday

Hard to imagine that not too long ago peeps spent years on the waiting list not knowing if they will ever get the chance to do Sani2C!

Pieterlab1, Feb 19 2019 02:05

Also in again for the Adventure this year.

 

Finished last year with a fractured collarbone, so I have a bit of a score to settle this year.

 

But cannot wait, it was a great experience!

 

One thing that I found very handy was the Vacu Bags that I got from Builders Warehouse. Cheap and keeps your clean kit dry and the smelly kit out of the way. 

Escapee.., Feb 19 2019 02:39

Will be number 5 for me this year if we do it.

 

Still deciding though

Same here! We seem to be riding the same spots every weekend and training for the same event!

Newspapers to stuff in your shoes when they get wet. Nothing like nice dry shoes to begin a ride

Which B&B event are you doing?

Wet Ears, Feb 20 2019 10:14

Aiming for the Descent - missed the early bird entries so will try and snap on up when entries open on 1 March.

RallyRob, Mar 07 2019 11:01

Does anyone know if there are perhaps luxury tent accomodation options available on Sani2C (as with many other events nowadays) or just the standard 2-man tents and the B&B option??

Fjp1980, Mar 16 2019 05:23

8 weeks! So stoked!!!

Me too, did a nice training ride today to gauge the strenth and fitness

OnTheRicky, Mar 25 2019 12:05

This is my first one and I still have so many questions!

 

What's the best way to get to the event and how accessible is it with a normal hot-hatch? 

 

Is it worth getting a mechanic package and from which service provider?

Yes, any car will do. What gives you the idea that its not accessible?

 

No need for mech package. just arrive on day 1 with a well functioning bike

Someone told me that the road to the start venue is really bad and I should make arrangements.

 

Great. I was looking at the packages and it really doesn't seem all that worth it. 

Would any of the mechanics/shops there assist with parts etc if I didn't pay for a package upfront?

That would be true if the race actually started on top of Sani Pass...Nope, any car is fine.

 

Agree with Escapee, no need for the mech package in my opinion, make sure your bike is in good working order. Yip, sure they will sell you parts, you might have to wait in line for a service etc but you will be able to of needed.
