Coega to Addo
« on: September 25, 2012, 09:29:16 am »
I had an amazing ride yesterday, from Coega to Addo, via the railway service road.
My riding mates all pulled out, for our bush boogie, so I went alone.
Have any of you guys done this one, or want to, because I will definitely be doing it again.
There are just two mildly difficult sections for a big bike, getting around gates, but the rest is gravel road.
If you think of doing it there are SPEED BUMPS, so watch it.

Come on bud, give us a bit more clue on how to access this ride please.
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

Give me a shout and I will show you 0788942487.
It is from the new railway line and shunting yard at Coega.
The  new Coega road that goes past the coega hotel and wind tubine goes over the railway line to Jo'burg.
If you come from PE, there is a road that goes to Addo, a white gravel road, that turns off to your left.
There is also a road tha goes right and there is a  farmers house there.
Take the right turn and the little gravel road to the north of the house..
There is fence, without a gate.
Pass undeneath the bridge, next to the railway line and continue with the road, past a house, on your left.
This road come out at a junction on the road to Colchester, after you go over the Barkley bridge.
It is easier for me to show you, I live in Bluewater bay, so I can meet you along the way.

I had an amazing ride yesterday, from Coega to Addo, via the railway service road.
My riding mates all pulled out, for our bush boogie, so I went alone.
Have any of you guys done this one, or want to, because I will definitely be doing it again.
There are just two mildly difficult sections for a big bike, getting around gates, but the rest is gravel road.
If you think of doing it there are SPEED BUMPS, so watch it.

Please get hold of me BEFORE you ride that road. Those locked gates are mine and due to crime
in our area we are all rather trigger happy . It is by law a private road  for transnet and permit holders

Hi Chris,

Thanks, I will contact you.
The first time I went there, I found some guys in a bakkie, with a shotgun and they were alegedly looking for hunting dogs.
More like two horned hunting dogs in the lang kamp.

Great to get some news from the Easter Cape.  There must be some ausome routes down there.  You should explore and let us learn more up here in JHB.  Please send some picks not Pigs.  We have enough of those (pigs) in JHB.
