The more-ish Moray plains

The sign says it all
Up from Pang, one of the few flat sections on the trip, the Moray plains, are a treat
Shelley taking it in her stride
We were lucky enough to spot some Kyang (Wild Ass) along this stretch. Also home of the thar, ibex, marmot and snow leopard
Enjoying our lunch boxes on the edge of Tso Kar, a high altitude salt pan at 4600m where we camped for the night
Our groovy 'campsite' manager, whirring his prayer wheel and reciting his prayers. He oversees any campers and asks no more than around R50 for use of his villages communal lands. The money is used restore the village 'Gompa'.
..and what a campsite it was!
Mani stones etched with Tibetan prayers along the shores of Tso Kar. Our tents way off in the distance

Pedaling has been natural to me since the tender age of three. Cycling is practical, fun, it gets you to the corner café, across countries, continents, keeps you fit and is by far the most efficient and environmentally friendly transport option around, being virtually carbon neutral.

I live in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal which is great cycling country, within 10 minutes I can be bouncing along some of the finest single tracks in the province.
