Day 7: George to Port Elizabeth

Dave and the Rough Rid­ers have been on the road for over a week now. Since the start of this adven­ture we have been in awe with the scenery, the places and faces we meet. Every­where peo­ple have been accom­mo­dat­ing, warm and friendly.

We left George with 2530 rid­ers who joined us. It was spec­tac­u­lar to see all the bikes on the road.

We stopped along the road close to Natures Val­ley to take in some of the amaz­ing views and met up with Archie Hitge, a long time friend of the tour.

Cross­ways, a spe­cial spot Archie organ­ised some pizza’s and good com­pany before we con­tin­ued further.
