3 of us from Jo'burg are planning a road trip to Durban for the long weekend in March (19th - 21st). If there is anyone in Durban who wants to join us for a session or you can recommend a spot, post it here. We'll be spending most of our time in Kloof, some decent spots in that area.

And this one too: Quentin Smythe Road
It's a bit more chilled so it can be done anytime of the day.

Heya,

I rode marine drive, outside my house for the first time... maybe I'm a noob but my god that was a sick ride! might be a bit mellow for you guys but still worth the trip I promise, even if only for the sick 2 lanes of dbl cream tar.

Will take pics next time :)

Not sure that this road trip is still on. If it is I'll probably be coming on my own. If you know of anyone lookin for a ride to Durban next weekend, let me know.

This hill is MENTAL! I took a drive to it on the way top work the other day and its super heavy! Not something I think I'm ready for yet :D
There is however another hill on that same road. Because the road goes down into the gorge you can ride both sides. One is more mellow but suuper long and the other is the one that Lloyd linked to which is super steep with lovely hair raising corners :D Let me know if anyones ever gonna do Lloyds one cause I'd love to see what speeds you hit :P
Is this it?
