Well the Chaeli campaign is over for this year - we've raised tens of thousands of rands (still counting) and we had a lot of fun!
We started in Hermanus (see the sun rising behind us!) and cycled through to Stellenbosch on Friday - the ride took nearly 8 hours; which is a very long time, but we were a social group riding with people who had never ridden long distance before. They did very well! (122km in total)
The ride was beautiful (as you can see in the pictures)
The Frenchman smiling at you in the center photo is Jeremie Dupont; he's setting out for Paris in October with girlfriend Charlene Dickson.
You can see all the details of where they are going here.
The chap behind him is Deon, my friend and colleague.
Deon and I will probably ride with Jeremie and Charlene for the first few hundred Km. I'm looking forward to it!
Saturday we rode from Stellenbosch to Cape Town in the rain! (70km)
Sunday was the big day - the Cape Argus - 109km in the wind! It was hell!
In total just on 300Km and nearly 16 hours on the saddle!
