After our first overnight stay in Victoria West on Wednesday night which you can read about here if you wish, we embarked on the next leg of our bike trip to the Flowers of Namaqualand. We were on our way to stay with friends, Hilton and Catherine in Clanwilliam. We met them 21 years ago when Hilton supplied heavy equipment and machines, (Hilton runs his business from Cape Town) to Grant who managed a mine earthmoving site in Namibia in the nineties.
Along this leg of our trip lay one of our favourite mountain passes. Bikers love mountain passes and Vanryn's Pass offers magnificent riding along a sweeping road with the mountain cliffs on one side and the view of the flat countryside below.
At the bottom of the pass, we rode through the picturesque town of Vanrynsdorp and took the N7. Freeways are not favourite roads for us, but we had no choice. Catherine and Hilton met us in town (our GPS wouldn't pick up their address) and led us to their beautiful weekend home overlooking Clanwilliam.
