Karoo - Day1 Leg25 - Up the Pass

Once we had ridden through all the long and flat roads to reach the Skurweberg pass, it was time to climb up and get onto the plateau higher up as we moved in-land. Looking at ridge it didn't seem to daunting, but once we got going it turned out to be an excellent ride up and quite steep and sharp at some points, with a bit of loose gravel for good measure.

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011. See the plans for the trip blog here: Planning a 6 day 2500km route through the Karoo maximising dirt
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
