Ben10 By Bike Challenge
Ever heard of the Ben10 Challenge (No, it’s got nothing to do with the kid’s TV show). It does, however, involve 10 of the highest mountain passes in South Africa, and we are going to tackle them on a bicycle. For full details about the challenge, go look at the page here, the team from Mountain Passes of South Africa have put together the challenge, and we intend to complete the challenge in five days, under peddle power.
We will leave Cape Town on the 9th of April, and make our way towards Graaf-Reinet where we spend the night. The following morning, we depart early and make our way toward Rhodes where we spend the next three nights. Stopping off first to tackle the Otto du Plessis, Bastervoedpad, and Barkly Passes.
We spend another two nights in Rhodes as a base, giving us the time to tackle the remaining 7 passes over three days, before spending the final night in Graaf-Reinet, before making our way back to Cape Town.
