Voor die tonnel bo op die Brakwal-pad, langs die spoor op om uiteindelik bo op Van Reenenspas (N3) uit te kom

We have a few tunnels here in Hilton where I do a bit of riding as it's practically my back garden.

Some pics taken this morning:



They want to tell me I am not allowed to ride in my own back garden  :D

A short tunnel that I often ride through, need a headlight as it is pitch black inside, only 875m long



As opposed to this tunnel which is still in use and is over 6km long and until recently was the longest tunnel in the Southern hemisphere



Wonder if anyone is brave enough to ride through this one?

Not me  :o
How can I be lost when I have got nowhere to go?

I would LOVE to ride through that.
Just check the train schedules first, and make sure your headlight is reliable.

Fark yeah, would be a moerse rush!

JonW, is dit die tonnel wat van Cedara na Hilton gaan?  Indien wel, 'n storie daaroor.  Baie jare gelede, in die '60s, was my pa op Cedara.  Op die stasie het hulle osse gelaai, en een het weggebreek en in die tonnel ingehardloop.  My pa het hom agtervolg, deur die donker tonnel gejaag, en aan die anderkant het die polisie uiteindelik die os moes skiet.  Gelukkig is alle treine vir die duur van daardie trippie gestop!!
