It sure does take a bit of time to go through everything & sort it all out.....but everyone that reads the RR gets to feel as though they have felt like they have "travelled with us" & "enjoyed it"....then it's all worth the effort ;) :thumleft: :thumleft: :3some:

The Cederberg Area truly is IMHO an Awesome Gem here in our very own Back Yard.....& I personally can just never grow tiered of riding through it & "Taking It All In" :drif: ;D ;D

Real Pity that thing didn't work of for you, FM & that you couldn't complete the ride with us. :'(

Quite a few of the guys that rode with us on this route....had never ever been out that way & had no idea just what they had missed out on..... So I figured I'd try share as much info (in photos) of the route, for others that might want to enjoy the route through this RR. :ricky: ;D ;D
