Day 2 - Otto du Plesis to Ugie, via Baster Voetpad
I thought the first descent was a bit hairy on this bike. I was in for a much more challenging descent with 800m drop off Baster Voetpad. Big day. Back got quite sore descending in the drops. Fred Leask met us with cool drinks and beers near the bottom of the rough stuff. And we flew along after that to the Leask home. So hospitable. I loved the whole day :)
