Riding in the Elgin Area
« on: August 19, 2007, 03:59:09 pm »
I have ridden, and also heard about some great riding in the Elgin area.
Some of it is permit required, and some is seriously off limits, must be able to dodge bullets type riding

Though I would share some of it with you as I am researching routes for a full day ride out that way

1. Red Lines - Total ban on public and strictly controlled and/or you will be prostituted  ;D
2. Yellow Lines - Permit Required but in some cases not really needed, gentle bollocking out for those who are caught  >:D
3. Green Lines - Public roads  ;)

Pics to come

Ride from top of Highlands to the N2 at Houwhoek, around a old military base on a Eskom service road

THe must do trip for all going over Sir Lowrys, Turn Right after Peregrine and then left a few kms later, Another left onto Valley road gives a couple of kms of nice Dirt, Straights take you over highlands

THe MTO Forestry, On a slow day when there are no hikers they will give you a permit for big bikes but you will have to ask very nicely, strictly not quads and enduros etc
The red lines is Cape Nature, Accidentally slipped in here due to lack of signpostings  :-X
