I am looking forward to my first TB this year! Sadly I don't have a lift back from Jeffreys for myself, my bike and stuff back to Cape Town.

 

If there is anyone who might have a spot open please let me know!

This is a magical experience but alas, logistics and accommodation really puts a damper on the event

So exciting but also a bit concerning - hopefully I haven't bitten off more than I can chew haha.

The Race is scoring epic weather today,

Perfect in P.E. Hope its the same for the repeat next week.

Does anyone have space in the car for one up to Willowmore next week from P.E?

Alternatively I have a Caddy we could load but need someone to drive it back to P.E?

At this stage not looking too great. We have a few days, so I hope the weather gods decide to play nice...... Headwind all the way at this stage.

Exciting but also scary.

I think the wind will be a factor from Patensie (never ender) but not so much in the reserve.
