Stage 5

A journey which includes Montagu pass is always worthwhile and combined with the new single track sections at Herold Wines makes this a fabulous day – we return to the 2009 Pioneer route between George and Oudtshoorn, with undulating tracks and climbs that has a bite.

The change in climate and terrain is evident as we enter the arid desert like Karoo; once again we enter Oudtshoorn through Chandelier Game Reserve as we find our way towards Langenhoven Gymnasium, our hosts for the next couple of days.
