GENERAL ROUTE ISSUES

    1) There are tar road sections (Yes We feel very ashamed):
    These include:
    Philadelphia Rd and Klipheuwel Rd (1.16km) – Take Care!
    Kalbaskraal Rd (approx 10km of bad/bumpy tar road)
    R311 North of Riebeeck West (2.9km)
    Main Road Riebeeck West to Riebeek Kasteel (4.75km) – BUSY!!!
    Town centre and exit of Riebeeck Kasteel (2.65km) – BUSY!!!
    Hermon Rd (0.65km) – fast traffic
    2) We ride straight through Riebeeck West and Riebeeck Kasteel – many locals will
        realise this on the morning… USE COMMON SENSE!
    3) Course marking – yellow boards with blue arrows (red arrows if we need to)
    For the most part we’ll also use the bright orange squares on droppers to indicate or
enforce direction.
    Only turn off when directed, if faced with an intersection with no marking – go straight
