Day 1: Pietermaritzburg to Centocow. 150km/11h

We got off to a flying start, the intention being to get to the bottom of the big Hella Hella climb with plenty of time to walk up it (remember, he has skinny legs and only one gear..) Despite some leg cramps and lot's of heaving breathing, Skinny maintained a decent pace, passing through Allendale support station by 2pm and eventually reaching the Centocow stop just after 5pm.

Along the way, his cellphone jumped out of the front pouch - a minor catastrophe as it was also the alarm clock - but thankfully, a farmer found it and notified David, who drove through to pick it up and then delivered it to Centocow after 11pm!
