Baviaans /There and back.
« on: August 31, 2009, 08:12:43 pm »
I took my Boy to do the Baviaans this weekend to celebrate his 18th.This is our story.
Friday afternoon we loaded the bikes on the bakkie and left PE for Patensie.We arrived at our campsite ,Komdomo, @ 17;00.(R220.00 P.N. to pitch your tent).I would advize that one rather uses one of the private campsites further up the road.Better facilities for far less (R65 pp pn).Saturday the weather was perfect for an day in the saddle.The rivers was easy to cross due to the low water levels.The road was a bit of a challenge with some very rocky accents and decents.We are however newbies to this type of riding.We spent the night at ,Uitspan Guest Farm.The folks are biker friendly and their facilities are top notch.Bar(with dstv for the rugby),great wors and tjops, a cool dam to cool down in ,excellent camping facilities ,B&B or self catering.Camp fee was R65 p.p.They are situated 50km form Willowmore in the direction of the kloof.After a festive Saturday night with some fellow adventurers we took the road back through the kloof.We covered the 96km in aprox 4 hours.No stops , but we took it slow.(die kop ,hy was seer).I believe from others riders that you can do it safely in 3.It took us 6 hours Saturday.We took plenty of rests and the Tenere gave my right leg a good workout after each stop. Next adventure bike must have a happy button!!   Some pics:

The Baviaans remains a special place. Stayed at Uitspan before and would also recommend them.

Beautiful Tenere :thumleft:

What a perfect way to spend a special birthday with your son . I have a soft spot for the Baviaans and have been fortunate enough to do it several times , and I still cannot get enough.

It is a hellava trek from GP ,and I try not to trailer my bikes but after seeing your pics I am definately going to fit a trip in before December.

Well Done !
I am not here for a long time , I am here for a good time !

blainec save your tires and stuff. Put your bike on the bike taxi and send it to George (costs around R1k I think). I'll collect it and park it in my garage. Then you fly down to George and presto! You're here in 2 hours, refreshed and ready to ride. I'll even pick you up at the airport ;D
