Wemmershoek - to the top Paarl on the Drakenstein
« on: August 13, 2006, 03:40:45 pm »
Two of us went up the old nature / MTO road in Wemmershoek which run up to Paarl. This was on Wednesday so just after the rain - the roads on top had turned to streams - Sports  :D
Total time to the top - 60 minutes - and about 45 Minutes down again

At the start looking towards the Wemmershoek dam



Halfway up - Looking towards Simonsberg and Table mountain - Road is still gravel here with patches of sand but not tricky



At the top - Looking towards Wellington and the N1 Tunnel




THe bikes - Overlooking Paarl

HI

That XT is a nice bike, I have been impressed with it the few times I have seen it in the dirt, really needs that bash plate as standard though


Mark, drop me a PM with your email, I will send you a map from google earth else it is a bit hard to explain

cheers
H
