Merry Christmas! I hope all of you have a blessed day and that you get to spend it with the people you love. I for one am spending it camping with my family at the Keurbooms Forever Resort in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa.
I went for an 80km ride this morning. It was 4 years ago to the day that I did my first ever double century ride here in Plettenberg Bay. Since then it has been an on and off Christmas tradition of mine to do a huge ride on Christmas day. I floated the idea of doing one this year, but since this is likely my last Christmas with my family in a long time, I decided that I do not want to spend it on the road from dusk till dawn.
Here are a few photos from my ride this morning to Grootrivier and Bloukrans Pass. Plettenberg Bay is a great place to ride! I took a break from gravel riding today and stuck to road, well at least for all except 7km of the ride.
Once again, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
