After a long drought riding together, myself; Skolla & Baked Beans re-united this past 2 days through possibly the most scenic riding one can experience in the Garden Route ...

I don't recall all the names - but it started with the old Seven Passes from George to Knysna ...

From "Kom se pad" we went left towards Avontuur (it is on this piece of road where potholes are born!!  >:( ) and then right on the R340 towards Plett. From there we headed East by N2. After some coffee at The Crags, we turned right towards Natures Valley to go down and up the spectacular Grootrivier Pass, before we took the even more spectacular Bloukrans Pass (the closed one). On the EC side it is literally getting narrower and narrower on account of rock falls and bush encroachment, but shyte it is awesome!!  :thumleft:

Sunday morning the place was a "beehive" of activity, so we decided to get the hell outta there...
Basically back-tracked via the Bloukrans and Grootrivier again...
