n Boer maak n plan! Versfeld Pass
« on: August 13, 2014, 11:09:25 am »
Here's a fantastic pass to ride just outside Piketberg in the Western Cape. Despite it being tarred, it offers steep gradients, sheer drops-offs, several hairpins and brilliant scenery. The pass takes you to Bo_Piketberg. Read about John Versfeld and how he built the pass with just 20 labourers in 3 months, using his own measuring instruments. A natural engineer who excelled in farming.

If you follow the road and take all the tarred left roads you can enter at a farm house and drive down koort se poort towards goedverwacht. Dirt road pass. This pass connects bo-Piketberg with Onverwacht and leads to the Piketberg -Veldrif road.

Try it. Nice road and not to bad.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy shit...... WHAT A RIDE"!!!!!!!
