Messelpad/Wildeperdehoek Passes (Namaqualand)
« on: August 26, 2014, 04:00:35 pm »
It took three years for our first reader submission video to be processed. Johan Buys from Durbanville sent in footage from a recent trip through the Namaqualand National Park which routed over these two historic back to back passes. We thought he did a terrific job. The videos are now live on the website. This must be a great route on a bike?

I am not sure if bikes are allowed in the National park? Can someone verify this point please?

Het hulle albei al gery met die bike. No problem. Baie mooi. Net lekker sinkplaat. Die 1200 skud ma lekker...
