Bicycling (South Africa) - - STORIES -

Water­points are spe­cial – not only be­cause of the re­lief and sup­port they bring to the rid­ers, but be­cause of the re­la­tion­ships we’ve forged with landown­ers across the Ka­roo. Ev­ery one of the 10 WPs is staffed by the farm­ers and their fam­i­lies, with each one tak­ing great pride in de­liv­er­ing some­thing spe­cial – some­thing iconic, that will make their farm stand out from the oth­ers. WP1 treated rid­ers to amaz­ing bil­tong this year. WP7 stands out for its lush green lawns, about 80km from Lox­ton; and Pam­poen­poort has be­come a firm favourite for its pump­kin frit­ters and made-to-or­der pan­cakes – whether rid­ers ar­rive at 2pm or 2am!
