    A couple of years ago my Dad and I did a 5 day ride in South Africa, complete with a morning swim with great white sharks. I ended up creating 5 webisodes to document the trip.

    I hope you enjoy!

    Catching the Swartberg pass at the right time is crucial when the sun goes down it looks like certain rocks catch on fire my camera can't do it justice

    We went through there just at the right time as well as the sun was going down. It was fantastic!

    You also went through there at the right time in 2017 it got totally destroyed by flooding my Nephew sent me this as they live in Prins Albert if you plan to go back try to do the Gamka kloof road it is amazing I could not get a permit to stay over as they had the "Hell and Back" Mountain bike race that weekend I left from Oudshoorn in the morning by the evening I returned to the Top of the Swartberg they had started setting up the watering points and competitors started arriving
