state of R356 between Sutherland en Ceres
« on: December 03, 2019, 02:32:34 pm »
Guys - Can anyone give me some idea of the state of the R356 between Sutherland and Ceres.

I am taking my wife on a three day bike trip . Somerset west to Oasis. Oasis to Sutherland via Katbakkies and Ouberg - and then I want to come back via R356 back to Ceres, but I have not done the road before and I would like just like to have idea what to expect as it will just be the 2 of us on the Super Ten.

Thanks in Advance

The road is quite flat because of the construction on the Paardeberg wind farm, really easy riding, watch out for the construction vehicles though
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

I just did not want to put myself in a difficult situation with the wife on the back.  Whilst she is quite adventurous , I do want to keep her enjoying the outrides and would like to avoid unnecessary issues.

Pity I'll miss you guys as I'm heading out that way the following weekend. Would've been really great to meet you guys for some coffee along the way.

Maar daai pad is fine. Ek het in modder gegly en my poephol los geval op die R356 maar dit is omdat ek soos 'n twatwaffle bike ry.

Julle sal fine wees.

R356 is fine, watch out for the fine powder holes between Ouberg and Sutherland. Are you going up Ouberg or down? That in itself is a "interesting" ride even one up  :biggrin:
