On day 1, a lovely stop for supporters is at the PG Bison Floating Bridges where you can help yourself to pancakes, tea and coffee provided by the residents of Pevensey Place Cerebral Palsy Home for Adults, as riders choose the left or the right option from the dual floating bridges across Sappi’s Mossbank Dam.
Where the R612 meets the R617 there is a water point run by the Pevensey Place team, which is always a festive spot for supporters to connect with their riders. Day 1 finishes at Mackenzie Country Club which can be reached via the R 617.
Waterpoint 1 on Day 2 is the first option for supporters and can be found at the R56’s St Josephine’s bridge. Another accessible point is waterpoint 3 for the day, back on the R612, near the old St James Parish. Kings Harvest Academy is the finish location for Day 2 at Stuartsville, Hluthankungu location area, and riders will then carry on to Jolivet Farm to camp overnight.
Day 3 starts at Jolivet Farm, and the first spectator point is at top of Clint’s Climb. If you are supporting a rider who had a tough and long day 2 in the saddle, this is a good place to wait and check in. Vernon Crookes Nature Reserve is a very popular location for supporters on day 3 and you can see riders at the spectator point within the reserve or catch them at the entrance.
From Vernon Crookes you can drive towards Umzinto for about 10 kms and then turn left to merge onto the N2 – you will start to spot riders to the left of the N2. Take exit 110 towards Scottburgh, where you can make your way to the bridge to look down on the riders approaching the beach via floating bridges, or go to the main beach to give them some final encouragement. The finish is then at Scottburgh Golf Club.
