Hi Zonkelnut, I used to live in Barterton and went everywhere you can imagine with my plastic bike. It is some of the best offroad riding terrain I have come across. I think the town you are referring to is the town of an old asbestos mine(Msoli) wich closed down when mining asbestos became illegal some years ago. Until about 5 years ago they even kept the golf course going and we played there. The turnoff is just before the swaziland border. Cool report!

Hey Zonky... Brilliant RR. If you have the route on gdp, why not attach it, as I' really like to do a trip like this.
Keep us posted boet!

Nice RR Zonkelnut.  Thanks for all the nice pics.  I've worked for Eskom in the Lowveld and have seen some awesome place that the general public do not see.  Would like to do a multi day tour of those areas around Baberton again sometime.

Hi Zonkel, Nice RR. Sal ook graag daardie area wil gaan explore. Lyk baie interessant. Sal jy daardie roete aanstuur asseblief? Sal jou PM met my e-pos adres.
Groete

OK. Enough for now. The next set will be old photos of the late 1800's.

Cheers.
