  • Dag 3 Glen Edward - Malekholonyane

    Die omswerwings en ervarings van 'n Freedom Challenger Jun 18, 2017 | 08:02 am

    Dag 3 Glen Edward - Malekholonyane Die spekkies brand en dit wil wil voel of ek sterker word, gelukkig teen die tyd wat ek in Rhodes aankom, behoort ek weer so sterk soos die ou Rusland te wees. Melanie en die kinders, wil graag hê ek moet jaag, ek voel ook soms so, maar die bene nog nie heeltemal nie. More mik ek vir Rhodes, laat ons maar sien hoe die geveg hom uitwoed.

  • Slaapkranz - Brostelea

    Die omswerwings en ervarings van 'n Freedom Challenger Jun 18, 2017 | 07:59 am

    Slaapkranz - Brostelea Tim vra my om saam met hom te ry, ek kry die briefie en 'n omkoop chocolate van hom toe ek wakker word. Om vir Tim nee te sê bestaan in my woordeskad nie. Ons het mos al immers amper die hele roete saamgery. Tim praat my gou gou in 'n 12 dae klaarmaak in, heel malligheid in my oë, maar nouja die plan is om Romansfontein te haal voor die aand draai. Ons vorder goed, by Danie van Moordernaarspoort vir sy nou welbekende butternut sop in 9 ure. Ek en Tim wonder nou nog oor hoe die manne dit[…]

  • DAG 4 Malekholonyane -Rhodes

    Die omswerwings en ervarings van 'n Freedom Challenger Jun 16, 2017 | 01:47 am

    DAG 4 Malekholonyane -Rhodes My plan is om 2H00 weg te trek, JT en Leon wil hê ek moet saam ry, maar ek is nog te swaar in die broek, hulle los my by Ongeluksnek, my dif trek nog swaar.... Op Blackfountain vang ek hulle weer, hulle het so bietjie van 'n klein Picasso gemaak, vinnig is ons weer op koers. Blackfountain bly maar 'n bliksem in die donker en 5 ure later trek ons by Tinana in. Hulle besluit op die alternatiewe roete uit, dis weer 'n moerse klim en my diff wil, wil olie lek en hulle trek weer onder my uit[…]

  • Dag 1 PMB tot Centocow

    Die omswerwings en ervarings van 'n Freedom Challenger Jun 12, 2017 | 22:50 pm

    Blybaar nie 'n dag vir foto's nie, ook nie vir 'm vet seuntjie nie, gelukkig dink ek daar is nou net 6kg oor van die spekkies liquid energy. Wonder bo wonder het ek ook nie gekramp nie, dis 'n eerste vir my. Ek het gedink ek gaan soos 'n riet bewe wat die rittel dans doen.....Ek kan dit seker toe skruif aan die goeie raad wat ek gekry het, pace jouself,  wel my pace het baie loop en stoot ingesluit, Hela Hela se 1000m klim bly 'n bliksem en ek het vandag amper die hele helse ding uitgestoot.More is nog[…]

  • Freedom Challenge 2017

    Die omswerwings en ervarings van 'n Freedom Challenger Jun 11, 2017 | 10:13 am

    Freedom Challenge 2017 Ek voel soos 'n opgewonde hop balletjie met 'n hele span bottervlieë in my pens. My palm nat gesweet, my maag al werkend, wonder ek wat vir my voorlê, nie dat ek nie presies weet nie....Hierdie Freedom Challenge weet ek al 'n jaar van, oefen ek as jy dit oefen kan noem al van Desember, eintlik Januarie. Dis 'n roller-coaster voorbereiding gewees, want dan ry ek en dan nie, 'n maand gelede het ek vir Meryl ingelig dat ek dit verseker nie gaan maak nie. Haar woorde aan my was dat sy my op los tot die dag wat ek[…]

  • Durban Dash – Riding into the Sunset

    Adventures of an Ordinary Cyclist Apr 30, 2017 | 20:55 pm

    Durban Dash – Riding into the Sunset Photograph: Jacques Swart I like the idea of riding across large chunks of our country. It's cool when you can push pins into a map and join them with cotton thread to show where you rode. The Knysna to Cape Town versions of the Cape Epic pinned up on the map looked just that — Epic! The new format clover leaf patterns are dead boring. It was the idea of traveling from Knysna to Cape Town on my bike that first piqued my interest in the Epic. It was more than a race, it was an adventure, it was a journey[…]

  • POWER OF THE MIND

    AFRIVENCE Apr 29, 2017 | 20:48 pm

    POWER OF THE MIND ...I have yet to determine why I decided to return to do this crazy race! My race going so well was starting to unravel. Feeling emotional and close to man tears sitting in the shade of a low karoo bush halfway up a madman's climb, a place called Rooiberg, I had around 260km and roughly a solid 16 hours plus in my legs but right then the heat was threatening to burn a hole in my soul, to leave an ever lasting ugly scar to remind me I might not have been tough enough on the day... (With temperatures that would later[…]

  • THE VOID OF A MONTH

    AFRIVENCE Apr 28, 2017 | 17:34 pm

    The end of February 2017 came and went as well as the month of March. The weeks rolled by with the norm of ongoing riding (training), photo grabbing and sometimes new photo subjects looked upon.A two week stint of uncontrollable tummy problems that had me flat on my back for longer than I would have liked and visits to the bathroom on average three times an hour at one stage, wasn't something I would have wished on my worst.Other than that, the month and a bit since my last post was a void. A month with nothing but the norm and getting[…]
