This morning we started Word Riders 2014 at the Bible House in Bellville… Before that I stopped at the Thruxton Bikeshop around the corner, and saw some beautiful oldies. And some newer oldies as well…
But this tour is not just about bikes- We have 42 bikes with some 70 people on the tour. The first stop from Bellville was at the beautiful but touristy Franschhoek. Then some fun on Franschhoek Pass
The wind was really blowing , as we made our way over Villiersdorp, Robertson, Ashton to our overnight stop at Montagu… this is a beautiful town with white and green houses all over, in an old Cape Dutch style..
Realy a gem of a place on Route 62…
This town is famous for wine and dried fruit.
It was really hot on the bikes again today. We are staying over at the school hostel. This is the view at the moment:
We are knackered! Having our first dinner as a group together tonight, and tomorrow some of the pastors will conduct church services in towns along the route, the congregation of Ladismith will suffer me on their pulpit! A good first day in a beautiful part of South Africa!
