3 ultra cyclists embark on an epic bikepacking journey to follow the route of “The “Rhino Run” through South Africa and Namibia.

In the fall of 2021, Rae Trew-Browne received an unexpected message from 2 European Ultra Distance Bikepackers. Bas Rotgans and Max Riese wanted to ride the route of the “Rhino Run” unsupported bikepacking race with him. This means 2800km with 28000m of climbing from Plettenberg Bay in South Africa to Windhoek in Namibia. The race could not take place due to travel restrictions. However, just in time, the borders opened up, making it possible for Bas and Max to make good use of their already bought plane tickets.
