SOUTH­ERN AFRICAN ROUTES WORTH TAK­ING

Getaway (South Africa) - - Content -

Get­away’s deputy editor fi­nally did it – he closed his lap­top for the last time as our se­cond-in­com­mand, seven years af­ter pen­ning his first story for the mag­a­zine. His next ad­ven­ture will take him to the far reaches of Europe, where he’ll be rid­ing and doc­u­ment­ing the best ad­ven­ture-bike trails on the con­ti­nent. Fit­tingly, for his fi­nal story as a Get­away staffer we sent him to the East­ern Cape High­lands to tackle South Africa’s tough­est road trip. Good luck, Tyson. We hope the trails in Europe are rub­bish. In­sta­gram: @tyson­jop­son
