Day 6: Rhodes to Moordenaarspoort
160km/17 hours. Long day today but the weather was good so decided to go for it. Started an hour before dawn and watched the temp drop to -10, then -14, which froze all liquids so couldn't drink, bit of a problem. Made quick stops at Chesneywold and Slaapkrantz and eventually got caught in the dark coming down Bonthoek portage which was wet, muddy and slippery. A long, slow haul out of Rossouw really started getting to me but eventually arrived at about 22h30. Bike was flawless today, new chain made all the difference. Need sleep.
