Kings Kloof Beware

Recommended Posts

Kings Kloof is a place you need to respect. This past Sat my buddy and I turned up at Kings Kloof for our second attempt at taming those nasty climbs. For those of you that have riden this course you'll agree that the downhills can be fiarly intimidating. Well, I saw my bud take an epic fall on one of those downhills. It was just snot and hare. I thought atleast a broken arm or leg. Fortunately nothing broken, however quite a few stiches needed.

 

As we walked back to the main gate there was much discussion about taking it easy - like riding at Northern Farm. Considering I recently had a fairly serious back op (2 discs replaced 6 months ago) this would be the sensible thing to do. However, isn't sensible boring?

 

Kings Kloof - I'm coming to get you.
