Day 3: Masakala to Vuvu. 147km/16h30

An eventful day which started at 2am. Before arriving at Malekholonyane for breakfast at 8, we spent an hour lost on the Knira River floodplains and Skinny dumped us both in the river when he slipped near Mpharane!

The day belonged to the wind though. Twice he was blown off the bike and a few times I was pulled from his grip while he was pushing me along a path! Mostly it was a crosswind but sometimes it came from behind and actually pushed us up the hills.

We're sleeping at Vuvu now and leaving early to get over Lehana's pass by first light.
