Suurberg Mountain Ride with TerrorSA
« on: September 18, 2009, 12:33:35 pm »
Last month I went twice for a ride around Suurberg. Once was a solo ride and after discovering some great roads I invited 4ringdog the following weekend for a 400km trip.

From PE to Addo we took the tar road. From Addo we went up the Suurberg Pass and stopped for tea at Zuurberg Mountain Inn. We were a bit early for lunch, so we decided to carry on down the other side of the mountain towards the Elephant Back Safari.

On the way to Wolwefontein.

We eventually took the long R400 and headed towards the R75 to Uitenhage.


Went through some guys farm. Opened and closed a lot of gates.


Horsepower.


Next time I will wait for lunch at the hotel, we only managed to eat something at 4pm .
We also barely made it to Uitenhage with the fuel we had.

Can recommend this ride to all levels of riders.

I do not ride with or plan with a GPS. I normally just look at a map before the time and go.

Ride over the mountain pass the hotel. At the first T-junction you go left towards R75 or right towards Paterson.
