A perfect day indeed !!!
« on: July 17, 2011, 08:23:36 pm »
Just a Quick RR and a few pics !

Met up at 8 , only Robin Brown and myself.
The third rider was apparently full of Sh__ - t !

Did a couple of dirt roads before hitting Moorreessberg , then on to Picketberg.
although it was a nice day , it sure was nippy in the earlier paet of the ride.We stopped in Picketberg for a coffee and some fuel.

A long way to go , so we hit he tar and made for Citrusdal and down to The Baths.
I always wanted to go the The Baths , so we went and had a look around , very cool looking place.

Back on the road , heading Algeria ! Shew , a lot of traffic on the roads.They all going home and we were out enjoying the Cederberg.



And here comes Robin Brown



Almost at Algeria





Up through Uitkyk Pass and down the valley



Although there was alot of potholes , the roads were in better condition than what I remember.

Rolled into Oasis , grabbed a cold beer out of the fridge and sat down to suck in the peace and quiet of the Cederberg.
Boy , do I miss the peace and beauty of the Cederberg !!!

We had a quick mouth watering T-bone and a quick chit chat with Gerit and Chantal and back to the ridding .

Left at 08hoo and got back home at 18h30.  & 550 km

Robin ! Thanks for a good , safe ride !!

And Chris L , Agreed !!

One cannot get a more perfect day when the Cape has an Indian summers day.
Andy and I left just as the sun started to light up the mountains and boy was the start cold. We had to stop on the way the Malmesbury to get feeling back in the old mitts before continuing and ridiing the Malmesbury Mooreesburg gravel.
Mooreesburrg to Citrusdal we hit the tar, stopped for a cup of coffee in Piketberg and then headed to the Baths in Citrusdal.
Having spent many a great weekend at the Baths it was good to visit again and see the improvements including a restaurant.
One can easily see why the British officers used to visit the Baths along with their wives to enjoy a bit of R and R.
Quick fill up in Citrusdal and then along the Olifants river and up and over Nieuwooudts Pas to algeria and then up the breathtaking Uitkyk Pass and across the plateau past Sanddrif for a well deserved lunch at Oasis.
Leaving Oasis we headed home and into yet another spectacular sunset.
It would be hard to find a beter riding spot anywhere in the world to compare to the Boland and Cederberg.
Thanks to Andy who had to travel a bit slower today to keep up with his father.
