My bike on road between Bain's Kloof and Ceres

Took a ride on 7 September 2007 over Bain's Kloof Pass and Mitchell's Pass to Ceres, and then along a road I had not travelled before - over Gydo Pass and through some of the Cederberg Mountains to Citrusdal (some quite long gravel road stretches here). From Citrusdal I travelled over Piekenierkloof Pass (and finally photographed Thomas Bain's cottage that he built when building the mountain pass) and down the N7 back to Cape Town.

    Great photo. I can never remember where I take photos.
  • Danie van der Merwe 7y

    Thanks guys! @slink74659, yes its nt easy if you take lots but opening the photos using Google's Picasa and then going to Tools and selecting Geotag with Google Earth allows you to get the satellite view to hopefully locate and pin them down. Also work on the order you took them as you know where you started and finished, and the times on the photos in between can give an idea of roughly where you were between the start and end point.
