Day 9: Preparing the 1000 km to Cape Town

Posted by Gregory Gerhardt

Drove past Modder River and Magersfontein to visit 2 of the most important battle sites of the second boer war. Within 2 hours I had another two punctures. Land of thornes. Knew that I had to get back to Kimberley to buy some more reserve tubes for the deserted 1000 km down to Cape Town. This shopping tour at the sportsman's warehouse I opted for the thorn resistant ones (>2mm) plus tyre liners and self-repair slime that gets injected into the tube and fills the holes as they appear (to be proven, maybe it's just a slimy sales story). If all goes well, my bike and moonboot should take me down the 200km to Britstown tomorrow, situated exactly between Johannesburg and Cape Town.


New business model inflight. Like it.

Pivot business models, develop agile, ... if there wasn't this muzzler I'd even like my bike.

Wait Tom - I've still got 3 more days to go. Looking at my buttocks I might shift to roller skates these days. Big hug, Greg

Frede, Fug it worked fugging well I must admit. Important though: Don't pull the thorns out once they're in. A mistake I made twice, Dscherry gogo

Du wärst nicht Gregy, wenn du dich von so einem Plastikfuss aufhalten lassen würdest! Den kannst du ja am Pedal anschrauben, Clickpedal. Go with the FUDI!
