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.

Photos from Bains Kloof Swim 1 Jan 2014 and a surprise for Chantel  Our usual hike up to Crystal Pools on 1 Jan of each year was interrupted this year with the nature reserve being closed due to flooding... so we redirected to Bains Kloof instead. Some lovely deep rock pools where Chantel had a chance to try out her snorkelling gear as well as my GoPro action cam underwater.

Sunset Hike up Lion's Head in Cape Town  All the years I've been in Cape Town and hiked all over the place, this was my first time up Lion's Head. It was not a difficult hike as about three quarters of the way is a walking path, and only the second third has chains where it is nearly vertical (there is an alternative route that actually avoids the chains) and many families were also on the route.

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.

Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island, the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a living museum.
