Barking Mad charity ride: The Route

(Use #BarkingMadSA on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter to catchup on my adventure)

In March 2014 I started  cycling the Spine of the Dragon: a +-4000km mountain bike tour across South Africa and Lesotho to raise funds for the animal shelter, PETS (Pet Empowerment in Townships). Behind my bicycle I towed a custom built trailer (courtesy of Holdfast) with a dog box, so my two, mischievous mutts could join me on my expedition.

Good Samaratins

Steve Thomas, co-author off the Spine of the Dragon  and his wife Di drove 100km out of htheir way to bring me me chocolate milk and apple pie somewhere near Harrismith – Legends!

Below is the official map of the Spine of the Dragon trail. I did however, change the route somewhat to suite my own needs.

‘The people’s Trail’ as this route is also know, could not have been pioneered without hard work and determination. You can find out more about those involved by visiting www.spineofthedragon.co.za or purchasing the invaluable guide book ‘Riding the Dragons Spine’ here:www.randomstruik.co.za,by authors David Bristow and Steve Thomas.
