On May 21st Jaci’s Lodges arranged the first ever cycling event in Madikwe Game Reserve, that is planned to be running twice a year. On this beautiful sunny morning, the seven enthusiastic participants met for their pre-cycling brief, just after breakfast. One of the lodge vehicles would go ahead with all the snacks and cooler boxes, to be on a look-out for any big animals and to scout for good drink stop spots along the way. A second vehicle would be driving in front of the cyclists to keep them safe, if any big animals were encountered. The last vehicle would drive behind the group, with a trailer and pick up anyone that may want to quit and also to help out if any bike related issues would arise. The three vehicles were also to be in constant radio contact with one another, to make sure everything went smoothly.
