Moto S.A. DAY 3. Worcester to Cape Town.

02 February 2010

After a very good breakfast, prepared by the lovely Mrs de Bruyn, we left Worcester and headed back on the R43 to Villiersdorp.
There was no agenda, so we just stopped anytime for a leg stretch and a photo.

This is Villiersdorp. It is a very pretty little town - AND not full of tourists!

It is not every town that has a tractor and trailer parked on the main street! Nice!

I popped into the local Spar for some mobile phone airtime and also for some water.

Then we took the road over Franschhoek Pass to Franschhoek. I think it is the R45.

The view to the west ........

........ and to the east from the lookout point on the Franschhoek Pass. That is Franschhoek in the valley!

A bike, and minimal luggage is all you need. Oh, and some soap powder, string and pegs!

The bikes are parked and we are off for a morning cup of coffee in Franschhoek.

After a very pleasant hour or so in Franschhoek, it was time to retrace to the R321 and head for Grabouw. Actually we rode to Grabouw, then via Sir Lowry's Pass to Gordons Bay. From Gordons Bay we rode the R44 back to Rooiels, Pringle Bay and Betty's Bay. Then it was the N2, and Sir Lowry's Pass (again) to Cape Town. I refuelled (Trip 673 km) at Ultra City False Bay.

Then we continued back to the city and then out to Jess's and Wayne's at Bloubergrand. Tomorrow Eddie will take his motorbike back to MotoBerlin. I will be going solo to Johannesburg via the Western and Northern Cape; Calvinia, Upington, Kuruman, Vryburg, Ventersdorp.
