Table Mountain is a maze of trails. You can start from anywhere on the mountain but you need to know where you're going to get there. It's not marked.

 

Easiest directions is take Tafelberg Rd, pass the cable car and keep going....tar eventually becomes gravel and the road basically leads to the Blockhouse

Sorry Tom, cannot claim I took this photo but could not resist posting it.

View from the shuttle of my training grounds, work place and home all in one.

 

Will look for a real photo at home to post later

A different perspective....view looking back while on the way up, excitement building, heartrate rising, adrenaline starting to pump....love those minutes of quiet anticipation before the rush

Cool pics. Montague Pass is such a cool ride. Can't believe I'd say that about a gravel road climb, but really loved riding it a while ago.

From the top of the Rooiberg Pass - Calitzdorp,

at last weekend's Klein Karoo Klassiek.

 

The 16km climb was worth it!

I rode that from Wilderness, through George then at the bottom I asked for directions to Knysna...

 

It was further than it looked on the map. LOL

 

Ended up with a 175km ride, did most of the Karoo to coast alone and a very pissed off wife LOL

Sani pass. Didn't ride it (went up with a 4x4smiley9.gif), still, would love to do this.

 

 

 

Isn't there a Lesotho stage race later in the year?
