I did not see Montague pass (next to Outeniqua pass near George) in the Western Cape list, unless I missed it?

Thanks Andre,

Nope, you are quite right. I had Outeniqua Pass on twice, one as "Dirt" and one as "Tar". I have corrected this now by replacing "Outeniqua Pass - Dirt" with "Montagu Pass".

Thank you very much for pointing this out cheers

Hi Sharkie

I can add quite a lot more to your list of passes especially if you include 'poorts' and 'neks' in your list. Will add to your list over the next couple of days.

The idea is to read the thread from the beginning Exclamation But I remember at school I also tried to just read the summaries of our prescribed books but usually came second Embarassed
But...back to the topic, I agree with Richard that it would be a useful addition to indicate paved or not. That way us roadies will not attempt the impossible affraid

Yes - fully agree on this - dont want nasty surprises. Happened to me twice already - out on a long ride, deep into the mountains and all of a sudden the tar road disappears, whist it is marked on the GPS as a tar road. Not very nice and can cause serious trouble if your petrol planning cannot accommodate this change of affairs. Shocked Shocked

That is excellent - might be a good idee in the trip planning of next year to add a mountain pass ride award as we now do with the gold and silver rides.

That is a great idea !!!!

With regards to the Tar/Dirt issue, it is a bit difficult.

I have the following information on each of the passes on the list in Excel format:
Name
Co-ordinates
Province
Closest Town

I can add a column to indicate Tar/Dirt, no problem. I also have all the passes plotted on a Mapsource .gdb file. The problem is that it is not always clear from the GPS file if the road is a tar or a dirt road. I can add the passes that I know is Tar/Dirt, but that will not cover all the passes.

If anyone knows how to add a table to a post, then we can get all the info on the passes displayed, and members can add a post if they know if a pass is tar or dirt.

Thanks,

I actually gave them most of the info for those passes. I sent "LuckyStriker" my GPS file, and also posted it on the WD forum.

I will be doing some more work on this over the week-end, so by Monday we will have an updated list of passes.

Thanks for all the info from the members. !!!!
