From Fourways, cyclist found their way out of town towards Hartbeespoort on the R552. They then snaked onto the R551.
After turning left and right onto a few other roads staring with R, they made their way to ‘Harties’ via the R512.
At Hartbeespoort, after about 2-3 hours on the road, the cyclists stopped for breakfast one of many restaurants in the area and were then escorted in a van to the next point so as to avoid notoriously dangerous sections of the road.
At 15h00, after almost eight or nine hours in the saddle, cyclists arrived at Sun City to be greeted with a cold beer and snacks.
