Day 6

 

Himeville to Tinfendal.  Another brilliant day ride.   They say bad things come in threes.  One…nearly hit a duiker (small antelope) on the road then some idiot in a lorry decides to overtake another lorry at the bottom of the hill.  I pulled off the road and he was still overtaking as he came past…two!   Lunch break and fuel around 11:30…nice piece of chicken for lunch.  Said chicken did not sit well in my stomach was ejected shortly there after…that was number THREE.  The scenery was stunning starting down low and climbing up high.  Amazing sweeping roads with kilometers of vision up ahead.  Came across only four cars on the dirt all day.  Two of the climbs were truly epic.  Last climb was to Tiffendale, at 2760 meters it’s South Africa’s St Moritz!!  Arrived and the staff at the lodge asked who we were and what we want!  “Well there 21 people coming tonight to drink, eat and sleep”.  They got their dates mixed up, but in true SA spirit they got two lodges ready, the bar opened, a ripping fire going and food brought up from the bottom of the hill.   What a day, what a night.
