Title: Windy Breakfast in Kalkbay and trip out around Tulbach
Post by: XT JOE on October 15, 2012, 09:28:34 pm
Went out for ride with better half and Spannerman in on a very windy sunday. Meeting up in Muizenberg and riding over Boyes drive to Kalkbay for b/fast. Nice place/people and taking a walk afterwards found the HD boys accross the road with enough chrome to blind passing by vehicles. Must be a nice sound when all 100 odd start up. The one that spanner was having a look at must have 2 about one foot long pipes slash cut out the side, obviously from the wrong side of town

I bet not even the howling southeaster hurricane could drown out the sound of those lawnmowers.
Spanner seems to have that unmistakable twinkling in the eye, lusting after that beast. Or maybe remembering days long gone...

Back to front with the Tulbach trip we did thursday b4. Having never been to Tulbach but every town around we rode out in perfect weather early thursday from Somerset over Wellington and poor Gouda, shame even ANC office was stuffed. The hotel must be doing ok though. Then on to the pretty Tulbach for a quick breakfast, lovely place and people. Lots off old buildings if thats your thing and not the looney pricing of some of the other CT wine country towns

After a little walkabout  and feeling the summer sun trying to cook me with black kit on we hopped on towards Ceres turning off in Mithells pass back to Wellington coming back over Bainskloof. Stopping in Bainskloof for pics the 2nd pic showing where the dinamite exploded in the rock when this beauty was built. Fantastic ride and scenery

Nou sien, die trip sou nie so lekker gewees het sonder die stop op Gouda nie!  :thumleft:
Ek het nou net my toebroodtjie klaar ge-eet... met salami uit die Gouda Slaghuis... heerlik!!
Sien, die slaghuis behoort aan my neef (sy huis is agter die slaghuis) en voor dit sy pa wat net om die draai bly.
As kind baie Desember vakansies daar deurgebring en gekuier op Tulbach.

Thanks for the photies, XT!! Brings back fond memories.

PS. That building was destroyed in a fire and will be cleared shortly... including ANC office. Lets hope somebody puts up something that will compliment the spirit of this little town.

Dankie Hitman
Poor old Gouda is nie meer wat hy was nie, maar ek ruil hom vir niks anders nie. Kom maak gerus 'n draai by die slaghuis.
