Coronation Double Century 2011

They did it!  On 26 November 2011 hubby Will and his 12-man team conquered the Coronation Double Century 2011!

The Double Century, as it is commonly known, is annually contested over 202 km in the beautiful Swellendam/Montagu region of the Western Cape Province of South Africa.  Riders participate in teams of twelve, with the time of the team being recorded as the time of the sixth rider across the finish line.

The scenery en route is spectacular, with riders crossing two mountain passes as part of the course.

The Jacaranda Trees were in full bloom!

Will's team finished in a time of 07:47 - well done, guys!  You did us proud!
