Ride for a Child 2021 Day 8,9 and 10
Tough riding to SA’s most Western point!
Port Nolloth to Alexander Bay then onwards to Lambert’s bay via Springbok was our toughest ride to date and a distance of 740km in fresh to very strong winds that made riding conditions difficult.
The sporadic strong wind gusts made for dangerous riding in places… Lucky for us the road was very quiet with very little traffic.
After leaving the beautiful The Beachhouse Port Nolloth – Self-catering House / Cottages we headed to Alexander Bay! We visited this most Western point of South Africa and it was great to witness the Orange river flowing into the sea and across the river the Namib desert of Namibia.
We slept like kings in Atthebay Guest Villa in Lambert’s Bay and on Monday morning we took the scenic route all along the coast to Cape town stopping of in a few places to stretch our legs and admire the view.
Cape town marked our half way point where we had our bikes serviced and clothing washed and is resting for two days. Tomorrow we are visiting the Nazareth Childrens Home and this year we are taking all the kids Custard, Ice cream and Jelly as some of the kids are severely disabled and sick. Due to Covid, we will not take the children for a ride on our motorbikes like last year.
Hopefully next year we will be able to do it again as the children enjoyed it very much…
