Baviaanskloof Kareedouw side entry

Points: 2

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.

Points: 4

Once you get into riding, ATGATT means everything. ALL THE GEAR ALL THE TIME! Slogans like "Be Safe, Not Sorry", or "Rather sweat to death than bleed to death" keep most on the straight and narrow. As I say, most...

After a tiring week I put my phone off to sleep-in this morning, something I never do - that is, phone off or sleeping late. Just after 8am I hear my dad knocking and walking in (I was up at 6 to open up for the dogs, but went back to bed). My mom, dad and sister wanted to know if I wanted to join them for a ride.

I would like to leave at 05:00 and have breakfast in Sutherland before 09:00 and then slow down and enjoy the scenery and the off-road until we get back to Ceres about 6 hrs later. 

The overall trip according to Google Maps will take about 10 hrs of riding.

When I bought my 1st GS in 2010 I always had this dream of traveling a true adventurer...I just never had the opportunity and I felt a bit guilty treating myself all alone and leaving the wifey behind...
