Unread postby Wildkyker » Wed May 20, 2015 11:52 am

Has anyone done the MTB cycle route (Petrus se brand roete) which start at the Diepwalle office and goes down to Garden of Eden? :hmz:

How is the route markings?
I am traveling alone so what does one do to get back to camp with this one way route? :hmz:

Thanx Lion Queen

I have an answer to my question too. The route can be ridden both ways, starting at Diepwalle or Garde of Eden. So for the lone traveller it would be an up and down ride :dance:
