Title: A few weeks in Thabazimbi
Post by: GundaGunda on November 17, 2008, 03:20:22 pm
For the last six years I have been employed to do a yearly consulting job at a platinum mine in the Thabazimbi area of Limpopo.

The job involves a number of interviews on the mine, and rather than traipse backwards and forwards on the R511 for the two weekends, I book into one of the many B&B’s in the area and make a little trip of it. Needless to say my bike would get pissed of if she was not invited along on the trailer, and would probably respond by throwing me off next time I rode her - a risk I won’t take. Also there are many roads to ride in the area and I am not going to sit in the pub or B&B and leave them unridden.

This trip the weather was not too kind from a riding perspective, although great for the farmers as it rained almost every day, but there were enough gaps to get out there and ride a bit, and hence  these pics and report.

The roads ridden – the ones marked with letters were this year, the others were last year.

I could not organize a single booking for the whole period, and had to move a couple of times. This pic was taken from the Hardekool deck one evening – looking towards the Waterberg. 

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_001.jpg)

A similar view from the deck of the Maroela guest house, and then back at Hardekool The mountains are in the Marakele National Park. Great to visit, but no bikes allowed I am afraid.

Most evenings (weather permitting) I would take a “sundowner burn”. Met a farmer reaping his wheat and asked if I could take a pic of the bike in the field. He, and his merry gang, thought I was crazy, but I like the pics.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_005.jpg)

First “outride” was the road marked “A” on my map – to Rooiberg. Had been raining the day before and roads were a bit slushy, but rideable at GundaSpeed.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_006.jpg)

Was looking forward to brekkie in Rooberg at the Koekepan – but unfortunately not open.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_007.jpg)

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_008.jpg)
Took a detour via the wheat fields in the Crocodile rover valley – love the smell of a wheat field after the harvester has finished. It smells like a stable with fresh bedding, but before the horse has peed on it.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_009.jpg)

Rodin’s thinker posed on a small bridge over the Crocodile.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_012.jpg)

More wheat fields – never grew tired of it.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_013.jpg)

Following weekend took a ride to check the roads for a possible long ride on Sunday. Like an idiot I had already marked the invitation thread as <<mudded out>> , but when I got out I found that most of the water had been sucked up, and the roads were quite rideable.

These pics are from road “C” on my map. 

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_014.jpg)

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_015.jpg)

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_016.jpg)

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_017.jpg)

So on Sunday (16th) I headed out to do Bakker’s and Rankins passes. There were a couple of  places where it was wet, but nothing serious.

Bakker’s pass.

This pass rises from the plain  below onto a “step” on the south side of the Waterberg. An easy climb of about 400m

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_018.jpg)

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_019.jpg)

On the “step” on the south of the Waterberg.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_020.jpg)

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_021.jpg)

Got a bit confused as to why many of the stones were either white or red, and then found this piece of coarse shale - half white, and half red. Must ask DeepBass9 what happened in Geological time.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_022.jpg)

Some Eland, Blesbokke and Pajamadonkies in a game farm next to the road. 

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_023.jpg)

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_024.jpg)

The top of Rankin’s pass (“E”). The pass is just a shallow straight drop down to the plain below, with only one turn, and hardly qualifies as a mountain pass, but it is really scenic.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_025.jpg)

Nice to see the stroompies running. The water in this one tasted like iron filings, mud and grass roots, so I had some cappuccino instead.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_026.jpg)

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_027.jpg)

Have to have an “ag shame” picture. I suspect this little brahman had never seen a bike, in fact I suspect he had never seen anything.

Mama was not keen on him having his pic taken, and I was pleased there was a fence between us.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_028.jpg)

The multifunction shop in Rankin’s pass.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_029.jpg)

On the section marked “F” on my map. Waterberg in the background.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_030.jpg)

The “Big 5” Restaurant in Vaalwater. Good place for a stop.

(http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p338/PeterC_bucket/ThabaPostReSeQb_031.jpg)

From there I took the R517, but took a detour on the road marked “H”.
Whew, but this road was tricky – at least for me and a KLE.

What was not washed away, corrugated or rocky was sandy, and there were many times I regretted the decision to ride it.

No photos I am afraid, as it was a full time job just trying to keep the bike upright.

The good news was that by the end I was not nearly as scared of sand as I was at the start, and the last straight bit to Sentrum I was flying along on top of the sand at a good 70-90 Kph.

Made it safe and sound back to the R510 and tar, found a tree and sat for a while just to enjoy life for a while and let the adrenaline levels subside.

OK, so I might have been up for Sunday if you hadn,t called it off.... but anyway, what about "G" I do not think I have ridden that? I agree Rankins is Tame, Bekkers is slightly better but only just  :biggrin:

Yup. Forgive me for a premature call-off. I never realized how fast a warm day can dry then roads out.

And the weather bureau lied. they said there was more heavy rain .

"G" is just the tar road from Vaalwater to Lephalale.

The calf was on the farm between Rankin's Pass - the actual pass - and Rankin's Pass police station.

Yes. The area was green - almost like the Natal Midlands after the rain.

Coming back to Centurion tomorrow for a couple of weeks to write the mine's report, and then down to KZN to teach a two-week course, and only back after that - about Dec 20.

but my crystal ball has a few more rides in it.

"I am sinking.  I am sinking."
"Vot are you sinking aboud?"

I don't have serious plans over the Christmas period - I get back from KZN round about 20th Dec after my last project of the year. I think I may book a B&B for a couple of nights and try to persuade a few other bikes to join.

Just a thought at this stage.

Christmas for an old timer like me with an empty nest can be depressing in the big cities -

But bike therapy - YeeeHaaa !

Doncha just love it the way a ride report morphs slowly into a planning thread ?

That's why we write them !

Jog the memories and make the throttle hands itchy, and next thing, off they go. 

Malgat, izznt that weekend the one of the off-road toy run ? 30th Nov.

I had not read all the details about it, but was keen to help the kids.

I will be riding in KZN the weekends of 6th and 13th - and probably also the 16th ( if I don't get roped into a beach-duty by Durban Surf - they like the experienced heavies on the beach on the public holidays )

Great report Gunda, I was wondering what you consult on? Im a ME that used to be in consulting too strategic & technical mine planning, now in oprations again, which is how Ive managed to get paid for riding to minesites! ;D

I love the Limpopo, its a great place for awesome rides. Not sure if you get out to the mines around Potties, but from there across to Thaba is a great ride. If you can get out Marken way, its a bit further, but the dirt roads from there back to Potties take you through some really spectacular scenery on the north eastern side of the waterberg.

I used to be a Mining Engineer( BSc Mining Eng GDE and Manager's ticket) , but slowly migrated into IT about 25 Years ago.

I do the annual update to the mine's I.T. Business Impact and Risk Assesmant - My report helps the IT guys do their continuity, disaster recovery and crisis management planning.

Ouch. Not sure. Good question
I know a mine mines ROCK not STONES.
Illegal bonking in Islam gets you STONED not ROCKED.
Stub your foot on a ROCK.
Load a STONE in your catapult.
Decorate a garden with ROCKS.
Scale of sizes on a coal mine is duff, peas, nuts, STONES, cobbles and {can't remember the bigger sizes}
Size?

Also, have a little back trouble at the moment. Not too bad but hoping it will clear up before I go to KZN.

   ( don't tell anyone, but I fell off a chair at the pub while watching the Bokke beat England and hit the leg of the chair into the small of my back )
