Old Houwhoek Pass

Carl Koch's picture

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.

Thanks again for sharing this Carl. I've now done it!

Didn't know of this pass until you posted it. Was tough (with pillion) but super enjoyable!
