I agree fully with the description of the road between Brand-se-Baai and Groenriviersmond in this report: http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=23438.0

We tried it last week, from Groenriviersmond in a Southerly direction, but turned back after about 20 km. It started off great, and the scenery is awesome, but after a while the road became very sandy.

Die sand is actually nie so bad as jy my vra nie, daar is n ie skerp draaie of so nie, so relatief maklik om die fiets onder krag/momentum te hou...my 2c...

We did the whole thing from Lutzville to Hondeklipbaai in about 6 hours a couple of months back. It is an awesome ride well worth the effort.
