here are some of my photos that I took on Lundean's.


Just strolling through new replies, brings back terrible memories - makes me sick in my stomach.

Other direction, already torn ACL, bike slipped out (I was maybe going a little quick) over this culvert, put bad leg out - shed a tear on the other side.

Lundin's Nek Pass

If you've never ridden this masterpiece of a gravel pass, then start making plans now. This is one of the best passes we have ever had the pleasure of filming - but it is long and slow (it took us over two hours each way) but bikers will obviously do it a lot quicker. Due to the long length of the pass at 14,5 km, we had to split the route up over four videos, which we invite you to watch via the hyperlink below:

It is a stunning pass. We did it on our bikes.

The photo you have on your site if I remember is where an army vehicle nearly took us out. :ricky:

I had a chance ride up this pass 24/6/17 all just to get engaged.
I never really put a lot of thought in as to how and where to get engaged but when the time came I knew it had to be in the mountains nothing fancy just beautiful mountains.
Im so glad I chose Naudesnek pass, initially I planned on popping the question up Joubertspass but even though thats a beautiful pass, to me it was not close to the beauty of Lundens nek.

We took the Telebridge road from Zastron over Lundeans nek down the Ballochs and Wintersneck pass and then the tar road to Luphela Lodge where we stayed in the silo.

I do have to mention that once up Lundeansnek about 6km prior to the summit we met some farmers from the Elliot region driving up in his 10ton Hino truck with about 50 workers at the back.
He advised that once on the Tellebridge road you should keep left past the Lundeans nek turnoff.
If I recall correctly its the Dangershoek road its only about 15 to and back and leads to no where but the scenery is according to the farmer is way more beautiful than lundean nek. I would love to go down this road one day.

Unfortunately we where already close to the summut about 15min's drive from the turnoff to dangershoek and my timeframe did not allow the turnback because i still had a big question to ask.

The road up lundeans nek was in fair condition with only a few bad washaways but other than that it was fair and doable in high ground clerance vechile/suv.
Once up Lundeans nek I took my girlfriend up the sandbank on the lefthand side (driving from tellebridge side) just before the summit and popped the question there.

Heres some photos.
This pass will defnitly see me this summer on the bike i wish i had time to explore more but its frustrating in the car when one is used to the bike as the going is slow.

I can imagine it beign way more pretty and green summertime.

Ps I did put the board back at the spot I found it.

Congrats 171Steve.
I have previously mentioned that I want to organise / co-ordinate a trip (for anyone who wants to join) to go up there and fit that sign onto those poles again.

So far I have it on my planning for the 15th to 19th November.
I will open a separate thread about this closer to the time
If you dont like something, change it!
If you cant, change your attitude.
Dont complain!

Steve...many congrats on the engagement  :thumleft:

but...you took a risk... you should have asked on top op Gannaga pass in the Tankwa, because then, had she said no and ran away...you could go chill for a week at Gannaga Lodge and still see her running by this time next week  :imaposer:
