Really pleased to be able to announce publication of the first Just Keep Pedalling book. “Mungral” is the story of the adventures myself and friend Theunis Estherhuizen had on Munga 2018, together with an extensive section of tips for those inspired to see if they have what it takes to become a finisher themselves.

Some feedback from readers below.
… I did not ‘read’ the book, I listened to you talking to me. I hear T’s voice, felt the aches and pain as you cycled the Munga, tasted the dust, laughed and cried with you … reading this book will make any cyclist think of doing the Munga …Hendrik
Just a note to say that I have received your book and have already read it in full. It was a fabulous and nostalgic trip down memory lane for me and should be prescribed reading for any prospective entrant to the Munga. I am pretty sure it will turn out to be just that. Thank you not only for taking the time to write it, but also doing it in such an authentic and unpretentious way – I loved it.Dawid

“The book is great, especially the portion on gear and what to pack. Hopefully I’ll be able to apply it in the Munga this year.”Kwame
Cracking read for anyone into cycling. This is an ideal book for anyone considering riding the Munga or in fact any ultra-long distance cycling event for the first time. It is also beautifully descriptive of the people and places encountered on this 1000km trek across the middle of South Africa in the height of summerSimes (Amazon reviewer)
What a fantastic little read! The first half is a beautifully-descriptive, informative, unassuming and awe-inspiring chronological narrative of Rob’s successful Munga attempt, whilst the second half is an invaluable reference guide to anyone attempting the same (or similar) long-distance offroad bicycle epic.Waltus (Amazon reviewer)
The author’s description of his ride though the most desolate parts of South Africa, take you there. You feel the highs and lows, emotions, the exhaustion, and perhaps, most vividly, the joy of reaching the next rest stop. You get a sense of the natural beauty as well as the desolation.T W (Amazon reviewer)
