Points: 6

A little while back as part of a days outride Baron and I rode the old Houwhoek Pass from Botriver.

It was a first for me and a great mix of sand, stone, mud and water. Not too technical and a great pass to include into any days ride into the Overberg.

It's 6am and the alarm goes off and my mind doesn’t know what's going on, it's not a work day...WTF Mate? Then it clicks, Overberg, Motorbike, BMW, Day Ride and I'm up and getting ready with a smile on my face. Well actually, did get a cuppa coffee to really wake me up! 06:40 and I am heading towards the Engen Garage on the N2 before Somerset West, the meeting / departure point for the ride.

Points: 1

Sunday the 29 July saw a handful of riders go out on a day ride through the Overberg region. The ride originally scheduled for the previous weekend had to moved due to bad weather and boy are we glad we waited, the weather was stunning!

The day started off a with no petrol being available at the Engen garage. With a range reading of 30km I would make it to the next garage, but cutting it fine.
