Gedurende November'18 het ek en Geo nodig gehad om sy motorfiiets van Patensie af na die Kaap te bring. Ons het besluit dit sal 'n alles-grondpad toer wees. En hoe dan anders as om deur die Baviaanskloof te ry --- ons vertrekpunt is slegs 16km van die oostelike ingang....

Vroeg-oggend al was ons in die Komdomo omgewing.

Baviaanskloof Kareedouw side entry

I follow the motto of work hard, play hard. This means that I’ve only managed to keep up to date with some of my 2- or 3-day trip ride reports; ignoring the day escapades and sadly neglecting the rides that served as highlights to my year.

Another motto I follow: rather late than never. So here it is, over a year late. A 4-person 6-day adventure to Baviaanskloof and back, including the infamous and hair-raising side-entry from Kareedouw. This is the scariest route I have tackled to date.

The initial plan for the December holiday season was a different type of RR: Rest and Recover; not Ride Report. Yet all it took was an invitation from previous neighbours (now living in Plett) to visit. That got the brain ticking. Why only Plett? Is not Baviaans somewhere in that general direction? Leave applications were sent, accommodation bookings were hastily made and Lance and I headed off 2 weeks later.

Oh Hell!...What a (Baviaans) trip!

Day 5 - Baviaanskloof

We got ready the next morning to a heavily overcast sky and a light drizzle in the air. Since it had been raining through the night all our gear was still wet, although we had tried to remove most of the mud.

Come and ride the wonderful Baviaanskloof with a group of like minded BMW enthusiasts over the period 26th to 29th February.

Our route will take us on a lovely detour as we head to and ride through this unforgettable Kloof.

The water crossings are sure to create lots of excitement and there will be many photo opportunities as we slowly make our way through the ever changing tracks and scenery.

When asked "what are you doing this weekend?" the answer has to be "yes please!"

The ride was discussed at the Donford bash last Thursday, rough-hewn late that night, confirmed Friday evening and executed madly all weekend.
And what a brilliant ride it was.

This report covers a five day ride in March 2013 from Cape Town to Baviaans over a variety of roads – myself on a R1200 GS and my son, Jethro, on a KLR 650.

Last minute work and preparations led to an afternoon start with a firm plan to end up in Calitzdorp for the night, but looser ideas on how to get there.

Holgatpas - het so "bietjie" werk nodigHolgatpas - het so "bietjie" werk nodigOorsig Dit het begin een aand, ver van die huis, oor n bottel wyn in Lone Hill (Jhb). Maruis van die Strand en ek van Westbrook, n “one motorbike village” in KZN (30 km noord van Durban). Kom ons doen n trip, n epic. Nie lank gevat om te reel. Die plan was maklik, ek sal Saterdag van Westbrook ry na Oos Londen (oorslaap), my vrou optel by die lughawe 12h00 in PE, ontmoet Maruis, Frits en Sabrina (van Belfast in Mpumalanga wat sal treiler na Stilbaai) in Keurbooms by die Sarie Marais woonstelle wat ons goeie vriende Willy en Lutrie Viljoen van Pretoria tot ons beskiking gestel het. Van daar sal ons oor Prins Alfred pas na Uniondale ry, die Kammanassie Rivier volg na De Rust waar ons vir Noël en René van Rensburg van Riversdal sal ontmoet, dan oor die Swartberg pas na Gamkaskloof (Die Hel), oorslaap, terug uit die Gamkaskloof, links by die afdraai na Prince Albert. Van daar deur Meiringspoort terug na Uniondale, proviant koop en die pad vat. Na so 15 km regs na die Baviaanskloof. Slaap by Boetie en Henriette Terblanche in Aalwynbak grot. Vat die pad deur Baviaans en dan was die plan redelik oop totdat ek vir Magda (vroulief) weer by PE lughawe aflaai en my pad terug maak deur die Transkei na Westbrook.
