There is a nice route from Dordrecht to Barkly via Clifford.

By the way - I still owe you the routes you asked for.  Just a little bit busy, but I promise you, I'll do it  :-[

Sorry

We want to take this road the weekend. What's the conditions like? Can you go straight from Dordrecht to Barkly East or do you have to go via Indwe on the R396? Much appreciated... :thumleft:

The road is a very nice road to ride.

Coming from Dordrecht, you take the 394 to the 396 via Roussouw, passing Clifford and you join the tar road 10 kilo's from Barkly East.  :deal:   :ricky:

The road is a very nice road to ride.

There are actually a lot / network of roads that a person can ride in that area.  While you are there, do Jouberts Pass.

It's a must  :deal:   :drif:
