All my bikes have covered more ground over the previous couple of months than in the last year!

They have fixed roadblocks around Cape Town.

If you dont know where they are - look on Google Maps at 8am during the very low peak traffic - switch on the Traffic view.

All roadblocks show up in nice dark red colour  :P

I am going for a ride this Sunday without a number plate or disc and will not be stopping if chased as I will be kitted for the dirt . I will try stay off the black stuff as much as possible as it could become a massive problem if caught . Not worth stopping as I will get locked up .

There is a roadblock just before you enter karoopoort, where you turn right towards Touwsrivier. My brother in law works for eskom, he went to their substation three times during lockdown and got the roadblock there on two occasions 8am in the morning and coming back 15h00.

Will be surprised if there's not one this side before Ceres as well, seeing that it's a hotspot.  Hopefully from 1 Jun they wont bother too much.
