Day 2

11 September 2019

The early morning of Day 2 can be spent exploring the tracks along the Fish River Canyon, with a number of fantastic view points along the way. A self guided explorer route will be set up to provide information about the landscape that is encountered around the Fish River Canyon. Sunrise over the canyon (for the early birds) will be an unforgettable experience. Final preparations can be undertaken in camp during the rest of the day, as well as spending time cooling off in the camp swimming pool. Lunch will be served at Hobas, and the main leg of the Day 2 cycle will commence at 17h00 with a route from the Hobas Campsite to the Ai Ais Resort. Cyclists will arrive in the Ai Ais Resort camp after a high speed descent lit by moonlight after cycling on different surfaces.

The cycling route covers about 70km on this day.
