Ryno and Zane met to talk about each other's epic adventures. They had coffee at Wolwespruit one afternoon and found a common passion for exploring and making a positive impact in people's lives through their adventures.
The 9 Peaks Challenge includes the summit of the highest peak in each of South Africa's provinces. Running all the peaks is like completing a 100mile race with 9000m climbing.
As if the 9Peaks wasn't tough enough, the pair thought it would be fun to cycle 2800km overall getting to and from each peak. They are both riding custom Trek 920 Bikepacking machines designed for this kind of thing.
The duo set off on 1 September 2021 with no real itinerary, they hope to average about 150km of riding a day, but who knows and who cares... this is about the experience all SA has to offer.
