Plains! Trains! Velomobiles! How can you not be excited by a multi-day mountain bike tour that combines Karoo plains, olde-worlde rail travel and – best of all – brilliant bike trail bombing in five of South Africa’s nine provinces?
I was fortunate enough to join Wikus and Zane for part of the#RideTheRail Recce a couple of weeks back, but haven’t had time to upload an album of this bike-plus-trains #adventureyet. These images will give you some idea of what’s in store, but be assured that I’ve kept some of the best secrets under wraps.
Evocative names for the multiple stages include#UrbanAdventure, #GoldRush, #ReCharge,#MoordenaarsTrail and more, but the actual destinations will remain a secret. Riders will indulge in craft beers, gourmet cuisine and comfortable sleeping cabooses on the#PremierClasse train, and wake up every moning, ready to rock a fresh new #MTB adventure.
The web site for #RideTheRail is about to go #Live, and you can make sure you’re on the #ShortList for this once in a life time event by signing up at their Landing Page – go check outwww.ridetherail.co.za
Roll on, #May2017!
