This trip has been written up already, so this report is more a “bits-and-pieces” piece on all the interesting things that happened from my perspective.

I think Geoff may have been nervous about me and Lance joining his group on the Lambert’s Bay ride, given our track record on the last 3 rides with him:

Baviaanskloof Kareedouw side entry

Points: 3

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.
