Bicycling WOW Rides - - Editor’s Letter -

The Wow Rides was such a great op­por­tu­nity for me to ex­plore some of the best trails in South Africa, from the wet, dense­ly­cov­ered routes in KZN to the dry con­di­tions up in Gaut­eng.

I was also very proud to show South Africa the beau­ti­ful, tech­ni­cal trails of the Western Cape – it’s so close to my heart.

The high­light for me was rid­ing up Sani Pass. I have done this climb many times in a car; but do­ing it on a bike was just awe­some.

I’d like to thank Bi­cy­cling and Aaron Bor­rill for these amaz­ing trips and the un­for­get­table mem­o­ries. It was a plea­sure shoot­ing and work­ing with Nils, Lance, Ryan, Oli, Neill, An­drew and Reuben.

I think the next edi­tion will be even bet­ter and big­ger, and I can’t wait!
