Eastern Cape Passes Tour.
An extra long weekend at the end of April was the ideal time for tour to the Eastern Cape mountain passes and even sneak in a whirlwind trip through the ‘World Heritage Baviaanskloof National Park.
Poorly maintained (that’s good for adventure biking) mountain passes abound in the area between the Western Cape and Lesotho and make for some of the best biking on the planet. Names like Volunteershoek, Carlisleshoek Pass, Michel’s Pass, Katberg, Devil’s Bellows, Otto Du Plessis and Bastervoedpad (Bastard’s foot path) were all part of 5 awesome days riding. Mild winter weather, great food, a great selection of guest houses and 8 great guys as my guests made for a tour to remember and a route we’ll add to our selection in future.
