Day 6 Cape Town to Barrydale via Cape Agulhas 407km
I’m not sure how many wonderful moments we can have in a day before you become numb to the blessings of each one. Sometimes it is important to
have things not going smoothly, a disappointment of sorts, or a big gap with a dose of boredom thrown in to help us appreciate those times of special beauty, support, excitement and camaraderie which is a big part of doing a tour like this.
In Cape Town we didn’t get many contrasts. It was pretty much all good, great actually. We were quite sad to leave, but when we got up at 5am, Angus had the coffee ready and it was time for the next leg of our quest.
The coastal road to Cape Agulhas was incredibly scenic as always, and the beautiful Armelle and her friend joined us for the first few km. (I should have written down his name — can only remember his bike — impressive KTM 950 Adventure).
The main reason we had to route via Cape Agulhas, was because when Dave did his first journey around the world, his starting point was Cape Agulhas, but the photos he took never came out, so this was a special moment for him and the whole team
From there off to Country Pumpkin in Barrydale. The visit with Dereck a whole chapter onto itself.
Throughout our visits in and around Cape Town Angus and Derrick were our guides, and the support from them invaluable. As our journey continues the support from the MOTHs and MMA, Airborne Riders and CMA is a constant reminder of a kind of special brotherhood which joins those who have shared similar intense experiences
