joberg2c day 1: it's finally happening!

Suikerbosrand to Frankfurt
121 km, 943 m vertical ascent (and one river-crossing by dragonboat)

Some district road, lots of swamp and tufties that was hard on the bum and legs. A long roadie-type district-road stretch to the vaal dam, where we paddled dragonboats to the other side.



the bikes went over by speedboat:


after this, it was a long hard slog through lots of tufties and swamps. The Reitz-kids cheered us in, washed the bikes, and fed us a local delicacy: fish! (in the free state, yes)

ps
albert - your buddies broomie and grant say hi. here they are in the dragonboat-queue
