On Friday and Saturday, they caught up on some much-needed rest at a stop just south of the Drakensberg in Resthaven Guesthouse.

The owners of the guesthouse, Philip and Elrita Rawlins, have a vast knowledge of the surrounding area and are excited to share as much as they can with guests.

Wondering what The Phat GM is all about?

"If we were going to ask people to support our various causes during these tough times, we had to dig deep and do a tour of epic proportions. For me, 'The Phat GM' as a cycle trip of 50km is epic and beyond my comfort zone, so we decided to do a 1,000km. Makes sense...doesn't it?" Gerhard said.

On the 30th of August, the two men officially started their lengthy expedition from Lythwood Lodge near Lidgetton, KZN to The Kitchen Windows in Jeffreys Bay, Eastern Cape - with expected arrival on Sunday, 27 September.
