Photos from my Gravel Ride to Caledon 16 Jan 2014 I got this route from Deon Meyer's book "Dirt Busters" and decided to tackle it today (also to break in my new front tyre). The weather was a perfect 27 degrees with no wind. The road was in pretty good condition and the only problem I had was a section being closed off with "No Trespassing" signs so I had to do a detour down a pretty dodgy track... nevertheless that is what it is all about, exploring new dusty roads.
We visited the nature reserve this morning to put some steps on the Fitbit (Chantel was there for the fresh air, views, and some exercise). After a short sharp ascent by tar road we came to a picnic area under some pine trees with really stunning views. Also departing from here is a wheelchair trail. It is well worth coming up here just for this view. It was not busy at all and the R13 per person entrance fee is very reasonable.
