So – where do I start??  

December is holiday time and what better can we do than to go on a trip.  Spoedvark, my neighbour  ::)  ::), approached me and asked if we can’t do Lesotho, but I was in the mood for the Western Cape . .  

I then received a sms from Mr+P (Neville) asking if I’m doing something as his wife is away for a few days.  So 2 + 1 makes 3 . . . and within a minute, Mr P was included.   David (not a WD) was contacted as I know he cannot wait to do Baviaans and he had to look at his dairy first . . .   Demmit – just come along.

So….. 2 + 1 + 1 makes 4.  

The route??  After I spoke to ChrisL, Visarend & Kallie a lot of information and routes were given, but due to time etc, we didn’t do them all.  Always a next time and a reason for another trip.  Thanks to you all we gave input.  Much appreciated.  

My stats for my bike is mentioned at every day, but in total I rode 1 787.9 km of which 37% was gravel (not much, but we enjoyed every single moment!!)  I used 108.01 litres of Petrol and it gives me an average of 16.53 km/l.  The accommodation costs were R980.00 @ R245.00 / night.  We only booked the first night @ Kudu Kaya near the entrance at Baviaans.   The plan was to sleep the 1st night at Kudu Kaya, 2nd night at prins Albert, then George and then it was open to the floor as it was only me and David left as Mr+P & Spoedvark had to go home due to family commitments.

We left the morning of the 17th before 6 as Spoedvark had to meet some of his family in Patensie before 11.  So we left East London by tar and went there via Port Alfred & PE for Patensie.

Milage for today: 373 km - basicly all tar.  here are some kiekies.



From L-R: David, Mr+P, Myself & Spoedvark



As we entered Patensie.

While we waited for our food, I took some kiekies.



Maybe I must use this bike for Baviaans, but those tight corners . . .



Or maybe this one, but then I must take the lawnmower with  >:(



This truck would not be of any help - too BIG



They can also feel the feul shortage in Patensie



And then the food was there - what a nice bunch of friendly people!!



After we were "lekker dik gevreet", we left for Kudu Kaya where we booked



Spoedvark still in for the game and a happy chappy  :mwink:



After a day's ride, I was glad to see the turn-off where we gonna sleep tonight.



Spoedvark given us lessons of how to prepare a braai.

That was day 1.

So today 2 started and we left before 6 again. Route today was from Patensie (Kudu Kaya) to Prins Albert.  370 km of which 194 km was gravel.

Some of the guys were like little boys as they knew it is here - Baviaans  :pot:



Where we slept and before we left.



I'll confess - when I saw the Rhino on the board, I started to make my sums of how and how fast i must move to stay ahead of the rhino if he chases me.  Luckly nothing like that happened  ;D



David & Spoedvark sweating like pigs while Mr+P completing the forms - I think  :deal:



Completing more forms



Mr+P stops for a break



While David is cruising up the mountain



1st Water



David is riding as if there is no tomorrow   :biggrin:





Mr+P waiting with me to take some kiekies





Spoedvark gelukkig soos 'n vark op spoed in 'n modderpoel







Sometimes I just have to rest a while.



After this - we lost 2 hours, BUT it was time well spend in the sun as I learnt a lot about bikes.  Get a kreepy krauly Pipe   :deal:  :deal:
