Share your routes !!!
« on: May 22, 2012, 01:12:04 pm »
A lot of the time I come across okes who do DS riding, mainly just fun outrides but also some more competitive okes who push themselves,

In a lot of cases I hear the same question

"Where do you okes ride" or " where can I find a lekker route"

So I thought a good productive thread would be to share some of the lekker rides you know and hold dear or close to your chest

Feel free to ask questiona about the routes etc and post post and post all your mapsource or google map tracks... just indicate which area it is in if the route is a closeup screen shot

Excellent idea.

Here is a nice track across the Knersvlakte and a lekker weekend trip forming a loop out of Ceres.

The Tanqua loop includes the Postal Route.  Please phone Cobus at his "Gat" and always stop at the very nice farmer at the top.  Petrol at Middelpos on Saturday morning and at Dwarsrivier near the southern end of the Wupperthal track.

I have been farming routes from Ride Reports and Planning a Ride and have quite a few of trips I've done.
They're from trips done all over the country btu I'll try to group them.
Not sure how many I can attach per reply but here goes with some EC routes.

At one stage I tried to get to all the passes in the area
Just another reason to get out there and actually do something interesting
Some of the passes are really not a pass - Akkedisberg pass ?
But, if you haven't done it, you haven't done it

Some excellent routes there

Keep them rolling in, I think this will be an awesome thread with many people posting their routes here

I am not a Mapsource boff, the guy at Outdoor Warehouse loaded everything for me so all I know is it works.
 Punnisher, did you buy the maps and load them?

Most of the routes here will be in .gdf format as the whole reason for sharing routes is that we want to pull them into our GPS's and go look around the route, but some will be posted in Google Earth or similar I am sure.

Please, if we can keep the chit chat down to a min or else we end up with a 100 page thread of okes talking kak and you have to sift through pages of junk to find the objective, but feel free to ask questions about the routes posted so we can all get info.

John , an I seeing correctly, it is 653km that tanqua route.. flip that looks nice, do you do that as a one day trip or do you stay over somewhere, is it pillion friendly?

I think this is Andy 660's route.. awesome for a long day out, mostly gravel, suited for average DS rider, no special skills required.
