Elton and Lucille will be travelling to Barkly East or Dordrecht (depending on how far he gets) on Tuesday, taking spares, tools, and a back-up bike. Elton will be giving Kevin’s bike a mini service, it having taken some strain in the mud and rain of the past 5-6 days. If that doesn’t work, the back-up bike will be wheeled out.
Kevin is taking it easy at the Rhodes Hotel tonight, having climbed Lehana’s today, a gruelling 2 700m. A 14-hour day, with another 82km bagged.
