Woodlands Retreat, Clarens, has recently celebrated its first anniversary and The 2017 Maluti Double 90 cycle race reminds us of this time last year when we were just settling in and were so chuffed to host participants for this event. This year yet again participants have selected our peaceful comfortable accommodations to relax and recover!!
The cyclists powered their way out of Clarens at 6.30 this morning, in cool conditions. Although conditions remained partly cloudy the temperatures still rose to a sizzling 26 degrees by the time the first team crossed the finishing line.
Team Road Cover were the first to race over the finish line in 4hrs 38!
About 30km from the finish the teams were put to the test with the strenuous climb up the “mine shaft”, sounds pretty hectic!!!
Team Bluff Meat Supplies hot on the tail some 15 minutes later!!!
Well done guys and good luck to all the other riders!!!
