Hells Hoogte Pass

Western Cape > South Africa > Africa
April 9, 2012 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.5

If you start from Stellenbosch, it is slightly uphill, so depending on what you like you should either start in Stellies or end there. I usually come from Cape Town on the N1, then take the Franschoek turnoff. Ride direction Franschoek untill you get to the sign that says Stellenbosch ->. Turn right there and you will end up on the pass after a few minutes. It is a very nice big road, with 2 lanes each direction, very little bumps in the road, awesome bends!

Stunning coastal route along False Bay. Magnificent ocean views reminiscent of California's Pacific Coast Highway.

Franschoek Pass

Western Cape > South Africa > Africa
April 9, 2012 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This is a truly awesome biker road. It's great to meet up in Franschoek for breakfast or lunch and then hit the road. It starts going up the mountain, with breathtaking views from the top, really spectacular. Pretty easy bends going up, then the fun really starts when going down the other side, with a good number of bends. Once down the mountain, you get straights that go on for ever for those speed junkies out there! I have never seen a cop and there are no fixed cameras as it's virtually in the middle of nowhere. Great fun!

M6 : Cape Town - Simons Town

Western Cape > South Africa > Africa

Ride south from Cape Town on the coastal M6 (no, it is not a motorway...! :o)
Then on to Chapmans Peak Drive (still M6). (This sections was only re-opened very recently (2003, I believe). Was closed for some years due to construction work after some quite bad landslides).
Its a great piece of road - especially the fantastic Chapmans Peak Drive section - and theres not a lot of trafic.
The scenery is tops, the asphalt is super and the roads are winding and hilly.
The weather was brilliant when I was there end November 2004 (blue skies and ~ 25 degrees...!).
Recommendation: Rent a large trailie so that you can go down one of the many gravel or dirt roads to the beaches if you like.
