For those who are interested. It's easy to ride to Tonteldoos or Dullstroom from PTA without going through a roadblock.

There is a gate that is sometimes closed on that farm ? If itís the road that joins just before the village before Loskop ?

Whole ride was awesome gravel and mellow riding. Such a great day out.
Got caught out here though. Right at the bottom of the pass, which was a bit tricky, with lots of loose rock and significant deep erosion, it was more than a little treacherous.

I was easing my way down but as I came round that bend the deep ruts went down to the bottom and crossed the road in front of me with absolutely no way out, so put the bike down to contemplate the mess I had just gotten myself and the bike behind me into  :-[
My mate on a GS1200 was still higher up so was able to stop him before he got to this point.

The mission was there was a single concrete slab about 3x width of a bike tyre  laid across the start of the rut to get onto the other side.
Hard work, got the GS across and down inch by inch with a big potential drop off into the donga, touch and go. Then my bike I had to turn round and get higher as I had past the little concrete slab, rinse and repeat as with the GS.

It was also about 40DegC in the shade. We live and learn

Swartbergpas vanoggend oor was, um, interessant. 6įC. Kwaai wind. YsreŽn. Snotglad pad. Somer handskoene. Toeriste.




Nice. Kan glo die Swartberg af met Ďn nat oppervlak is Ďn uitdaging.
