This is a challenging 800km journey over five days, starting in the suburbs of Johannesburg, riding through the city and over iconic Nelson Mandela Bridge. The ride with take you through the changing landscape of the country, from Highveld grasslands to skirting the mountains of the Malutis and Drakenberg, before cruising the KZN Battlefields and Midlands.
