Cederberg outride

Weekend breakaway
Unplanned weekend breakaway started getting together on a Friday afternoon with options for the weekend ride
Planned a quick trip to Cederberg Oasis via Tankwa padstal
Hermanus, thick fog and quite chilly, filling up



Van Der Stel pass, from Botrivier to Theewaterskloof dam, first gravel section



Old cemetery on the Van Der Stel pass



Thick fog on the road, almost like a misty rain, had to wipe the visor constantly to see where we are going





Then, almost at the Theewaterskloof dam, the sun comes through the fog and what a beautiful sight it is, the sun nice and warm, this is life



Breakfast stop at Villiersdorp, Kelkiewyn

Pushing on and before Michells pass, a stop at the old bridge over the Bree river









Passing through Ceres and getting on with the task on hand, get to the gravel, tar roads are so boring
R 355 towards Tankwa padstal

Pit stop at Tankwa padstal, rebuilt after a fire last year, quite a nice change, still a popular place







On the road again, towards Cederberg Oasis
Skittery (Peerboomskloof) pass



Old farmstead, a favourite place to stop, still thinking of stealth camping here

Katbakkies pass, some youngsters on scramblers going through, not much in the ATGATT department



Crossing the Riet river



We stopped quite a lot along the way, and it’s getting late in the afternoon, time to push on



Looking back towards the Blinkberg pass



And there is our destination, dinner is waiting



The famous smiley



Accommodation for the night

After a very nice Rump steak dinner, good red wine, good company, and a good rest, it was time to
head back the next morning





Going home, is usually a quick trip with not so many stops, but, the first time there was cell phone
reception, everybody had to get back in touch with life, just like the children, and we wonder why
they do it



Gydo pass





A quick geocache find



Lunch at “Die Tolhuis”



And home, goodbyes till the next trip



A nice 650 km round trip for the weekend, some tar, some gravel, mostly gravel highways, good company, and it feels like a holiday
