Who is up for an overnight stay on top of the mountain on 16th November?

We will ride on the railway service road to Darling, then on gravel roads to Hopefield and Aurora before the 15km ride up the mountain to Mountain Mist.  The mad woman at Mountain Mist is now gone, and the new owner is a mensch.

We will stay in the cottages at Mountain Mist, chill in the bush pool and have a braai in the evening (bring your own chop 'n dop).  On Sunday we ride back on dirt to Malmesbury where we join the N7 to head home.

The weather is warming up so time to dust off the cobwebs and get out into the country side with your GS/A, a pillion or just with your like-minded friends.

We’ve found a quaint venue on a working dairy farm surrounded with cows, calves, sheep, ducks and chickens. You will enjoy the peaceful surroundings during your stay beneath the captivating Langeberg Mountains to the north, with the Sleeping Beauty mountain overlooking the near by town.

I apologize in advance for any typos and language errors... this report turned out to be quite a bit longer than I had planned and I don't want to spend too much time reviewing it.


A few of my friends entered to ride in the Tankwa Cross Country Rally this year.  I do suffer from a rather serious case of FOMO when bike riding is involved… so a plan had to be made.

Overview of the Route

When Cecil Hill asked me to join a group of friends from the club for a 3-week trip to the Kaokoveld, I agreed in a flash.  Although, at the time of asking the trip was a year in the future, soon the trip was upon us and other plans had crept in.  In particular, on the day of departure from Cape Town, I had to be in Pretoria as part of the GS Trophy adjudicating team.

So the route for me ended up looking like this:
