Thanks Edgy. Some nice pics. For those thinking of doing it on big bikes, because Edgy and Bouwer did, you can, but you need some skill.

That pic above of the rocky uphill/down hill is one of the 'easy' ones.

Unfortunately I have missed the last 4 EC bashes as I cycled 3 x Sani2seas and last year my son rode the Roof qualifier so was really good to be back and fantastic to see old faces again esp the Wcape boys :thumleft:

Yes not easy on a big bike. Momentum is (must be) your friend though.  >:D

Also where the sign says Pad Gesluit do not take it as a challenge - that route is the old 'valley' option and the road is seriously washed away.

Any chance of moving this forward by one month ? Every time I go on a trip / bash in winter I come back with a cold  :P April should not be too hot or cold in the kloof.

Would have been great to have it in April, but always been too busy month and too close to WC bash. This date is fixed for the last 10 years  :biggrin:
