Day 2
Calitzdorp to Kareedouw, starting the day by taking a route that may remind you of the Scottish countryside and into the Great Karoo for some awesome views. Then into the Kouga wilderness for some superb riding. Kareedouw awaits us with a cold beer but the warm shower is only a tipi away.
Distance for the day 450 km
