Land River Stellenbosch to Hanepoot House 150 km and 1500 m of climbing.
After a sunny start in Stellenbosch, we rode straight into a head wind to Franschoek, then rain up and down the pass #INTERESTING. Stopped for coffee and a nibble in Villiersdorp and smiled all the time with the wind on our backs…until…we turned right. The rest of the story was all the way into a head wind with “exzillerating” climbs and some rain and getting lost to finish off. Now we are all smiles and staying in the Hanepoot Huisie, outside of Robertson
