Title: MITCHEL'S PASS DOWN KATBERG PASS UP, WOW
Post by: Vis Arend on March 26, 2019, 04:15:41 am
Attached see the route for the day.

Our trip was roughly 380km for the day, starting in King Williamís Town to Keiskammahoek, Sandile Dam, trough the forest to Hogsback.  From there down Michelís Pass to Seymore then up Katberg Pass, down the back of Katberg to the Post Retief route on our way to Fort Fordyce, Fort Beuafort, Alice and back home.

Wifey were on her CRF 250 L and me on the ďmightyĒ CRF 250 Rally   :eek7:.  We left at 07:30 with a cool breeze in our faces.   Out main aim for the day is Micthelís Pass, to give an update on the pass after we had some heavy rain two week ago.  The other aim for the day was to see and do Katberg as we heard the pass is in a bad state.

The route to Michelís Pass was the usual bad patches, other than that the road was a breeze.  In no time we were at Mitchelí Pass. 
There is nothing to report as the pass is still is a very good shape with a rut and a hop and a skip here and there.  See the attached photoís and you will get a clear picture of the condition of the pass.   Although there is not challenge in the pass itself, it is still a great area to ride, the scenery is just beautiful.

Now it is on to Katberg.  We heard the pass is in a very bad state.  I (we) did Katberg several times up and down on the S10.  I have seen the pass deteriorate in the times we have been there.  Each time it became worse and worse and was always a challenge to ride. 
Getting closer to Katberg I could sense the nervousness in my wife's voice.   She knew from past visits what is installed for her. 


On route you get Katberg Hotel on the left, 800 meters or so the road/track splits left and right, you proceed on the right track.  1.7km further you get a little bridge and waterfall and some tables and benches.  On this last-mentioned section, I already could see we are in for a good workout.    The footing was very loose, rocks and boulders were in the path and there was no way you could avoid them.   We stopped at the picnic spot to reflect on what just happened.  Wifey were rattled and I tried my best to calm her.  I told her we will turn around if it gets too bad.  The best way however was to get on the bikes and get it over with.

We proceeded, the pass was for sure in a bad state.  Previously the bad section was only a short distance closer to the top.  Now there were almost the whole way deep ruts, sections that you almost climbed like steps and not to mention the loose rocks and gravel in the tracks.

We stopped several times going up, wifey needed to catch her breath and tried to relax her arms and hands.   Two friendly guys on KTM 990's stopped and had a short chat with us.  They were highly impressed with my wife for tackling the pass and gave her the thumbs up

Title: Re: MITCHEL'S PASS DOWN KATBERG PASS UP, WOW
Post by: Vis Arend on March 26, 2019, 04:40:13 am
As expected, the track further up almost became a nightmare.  The rocks and loose soil threw the little bikes all over the place.  As soon as you pick a line you get thrown off course and are forced to negotiate the bad patches.   We had our work cut out for us, we were perspiring like hell. 
I was feeling sorry that I took my wife up this pass.  Me with quite a bit of experience were struggling, I could only imagine how she must have felt.  At two or three stages I almost told her we will turn around, but I knew we were more than halfway up and going down will be even worse for her.  I kept on motivating her and telling her we were almost at the top.  Each time I told her that a more difficult section appeared.  I am quite sure she thought I was laying. 


After what felt like a lifetime we finally arrived at the top.  We passed the two guys we stopped earlier with us.  We were exhausted and tired, we gave each other a high five and I gave my five a very big hug.  We stopped and had a well-deserved rest.

Post by: Vis Arend on March 26, 2019, 04:42:41 am
Katberg were done and dusted.  It is for sure in the worst condition I ever saw it.  Almost the whole pass went for a ball of shit, and not only parts off it.  It is now a proper challenge.  Doable but know you are in for a decent workout. 
I am however very proud that my wife did it, not with one off.  She stalled the bike only once, which shows me that the past training she had is now paying off.   She is improving by the day and I am very happy. 

The rest of the route was nice with Fort Fordyce as beautiful as ever. 
We arrived safely home with sore bodies, but well satisfied. 

Below a vid of some parts of the pass. 

Cheers until next time

Hell man lekker video. We have just returned from a trip to Hogsback where we did Katberg pass on a mixture of GSA's and KTM 1190's and 1290's. Even a Honda AT in the bunch. You are right it really has deteriorated. It is now a proper excursion! Well done to your wife!

Dankie vir al die mooi kommentaar, almal.  Dit is 'n regte confidence booster.

Oubones, ons het 'n wilsbesluit geneem dat ons nie ons pensioenjare gaan sit en wag om dood te gaan nie, maar gaan lewe tot ons doodgaan.  Ek wou regtig graag self bietjie ry, maar was 'n erg lousy ryer.  Louis het geen koste of moeite ontsien om vir my die regte fiets te kry nie.  Met die hulp van 'n paar mense en groot magic van superfoxi het ek en Bettie Bok groot maatjies geraak.  Sy is 'n fantastiese fiets en eie aan haar naam ry, hop en skip sy deur en oor alles.  (Net iemand wat die karater van 'n bok ken sal verstaan wat ek sÍ.) 

MAAR

Ja, as dit nie vir Louis is nie, sal ek dit nooit maak nie.  Ek het al 'n hele paar videos gekyk, en alhoewel dit baie help, is dit die werklike hulp en ondersteuning tydens die ryery wat die ding doen.  Hy bly gee raad (dankie Sena) en praat moed in.  Hy is elke keer daar om vir my en Bettie op te help as ons val.  Hy loop agter ons deur riviere om seker te maak ons spoel nie weg nie.  Hy masjeer die "nuwe" spiere in my lyf wat so blerrie seer raak van al die vreemde en nuwe bewegings van bike ry.  Hy bly prys my vir elke nuwe obstacle wat ek oorkom.  Ek weet hy offer BAIE op om saam met my te ry.  Hy kan nooit teen sy pas ry nie, want hy pas my op.  Ek sou dit nie sonder hom kon doen nie.  Dankie jy.

Hy het my darem nog net een maal van 'n moewiese hoŽ en styl sandhoop afgestoot  :o.  Ek het nie die moed gehad om dit af te ry nie en het op die randjie bly huiwer .... toe gee hy so stootjie van agter af en ek het toe geen ander keuse gehad om af te ry nie.  Daarna het ek die hopie sommer self 'n paar maal op en af gery.   :biggrin:

She just had an off day today, and the road we did today was another nightmare with ruts as deep as a camels back.   :eek7:    She got caught in one of these ruts and went down like big time.  She is ok'ish, just a tad bedonnerd and grumpy.  The bike is only a flicker light less.   Still need to see if the handle bars are bent or not.   :thumleft:

Ons moet ernstig praat.  Ons kan julle die 11de in Hogsback kry en dan 'n roete doen. 

Ons kan dalk saamry Rhodes toe, het 'n lekker roete daai kant toe, niks moeilik of tegnies nie.    PM my jou kontak nr dan praat ons.   :thumleft:

Baie lekker en wel gedaan, ja die Oos, Suid en Weskaap het darem maar lekker paaie. Wat se spoed ry julle op die ooppad met die
250 Hondas? Het 'n DR250 Djebel en my vrou ry so 100 tot 110km/h heel gemaklik.

Dankie.   :thumleft:

Ons gemiddelde spoed op die ooppad is so 115km/h gemaklik, true speed volgens die GPS.  Die fietse kan maklik vinniger gaan, maar die teerpad verslint die agterbande te erg.
