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 .

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.

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!

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.

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!
