Langpad Huistoe 2011 - Long Way Home 2011



Hi there!
I have stumbled across this very interesting forum whilst doing some research for our upcoming bike tour...

LANGPAD HUISTOE 2011 - LONG WAY HOME 2011

My name is Dave and I will be administrating (doing all the nitty gritty photo and text logging) of the tour.

When: 17 September 2011
From Where: Lydenburg, Mpumalanga, South Africa
To Where: Lydenburg, Mpumalanga, South Africa
Estimated kilometers: 5193km
Average kms per day: 370 km/day
Estimated cost: $6649-00
Bikes: 3 (BMW GS1200F, BWM GS800F & YAMAHA 660 TENERE)

RIDERS
Andre C - Yamaha XT660 TENERE
Jean Pierre C - BMW GS800F
James H - BMW GS1200F
(and them me... not on a bike )

The idea of this tour came whilst watching an episode of "Long Way Down". A casual suggestion was made that it would be "nice" to do something similar (okay, not on that scale but travelling further than the town limits).
A route was planned and costing done.


ROUTE
  • Day 1 – 17 Sept – Sat. – Lydenburg / Bethlehem / Clarens – 567 km
  • Day 2 – 18 Sept – Sun. - Clarens to Bethulie – 445 km
  • Day 3 – 19 Sept – Mon. - Bethulie – Willowmore – 484 km

We have arrived at our first waypoint - Clarens in the Free State Province.

Unfortunately the internet connection is very slow and I am unable to up load any pictures.

The drive from Lydenburg to was pretty allright apart from the usual road-work stops and heavy trucks.

We left Lydenburg 06h00 and arrived 15h26 on Clarens.

Tonight we are staying in a pleasant guesthouse in this picturesque town.

Tomorrow we head onwards to Bethulie.

Cheers for now...

It is day 5 of the trip. We are staying at an upmarket guesthouse in Fish Hoek. The trip is going very well. Most of the places we visited had poor 3G reception so I was unable to upload pictures to share here. Do take a look at the Facebook page.
