Sunday Ride Bliss
Awesome Road trip (4 to 5 Days)
A ride for Baz and Rob.
This is a great ride, but has some advanced off-road riding.
Very nice scenery, very quite roads.
This route travels through al the Towns and villages along the N2 from Cape Town to Durban. An amazing and scenic route. Will require over night stay to truly enjoy and appreciate it.
West Coast - Stellenbosch
stunning west coast trip
The plan is to ride this route the weekend of August 3rd. I will add photos and more details on completion. Contact me if you want to join me, the plan is to sleep over in The Hell or at Prince Albert. We will finalize the plan next weekend.
This is Adventure Motorcycle and 4x4 heaven. Not only is the road an awesome ride, but the views, the nature and wildlife, the passes and the end point if you stay over are incredible. It is not a particularly long ride distance wise, but takes the best part of 1.5 to 2 hours from the turn off if you dont stop for pictures or to pass others. However to get to the turn off also involves a pass from the nearest town, so dedicate the best part of a day to get there and back or just stay over. Camp or book a self catering house.
Another awesome mountain pass - not so high up and over the mountain, rather following a river and cutting through the mountain for about 20 odd km. Beautiful mountain scenery. All gravel, recommended for Adventure Bikes only. Depending upon the time of the year there can be quite a few (about 10 odd) up to two or three feet deep river crossings.
Arguably one of the top passes in Southern Africa (of which there are many many awesome passes), for length, scenery, views, beauty, changing weather, all gravel, etc. Its a must see on an Adventure Motorcycle.
If you love Adventure bike riding and nature this is an amazing all gravel route through the Tankwa Karoo. Miles of open road, a spectacular mountain pass, at the right time of the year (spring in September) it is wall to wall desert flowers too. Ending up in Sutherland, the place chosen for some of the clearest skies in the world for astronomy.
Nice road close to Cape Town to get out into the rural citrus farms and mountains. Two spectacular passes. the road is mostly Tar but a section of about 40km of Gravel towards Citrusdal. An Adventure bike is recommended for this route.
