The Suikerbossie section of Victoria Road has been separated from its northern half, as a tribute to the hundreds of thousands of cyclists who have walked, cycled, cramped, dreamt, succumbed to, capitulated or conquered this stretch of tarmac over the last 35 years. The dreaded Suikerbossie is the final climb of the 105 km long Argus Cycle Tour and it has seen it's fair share of perspiration, despair, anguish and triumph. It has a reputation for breaking dreams, hopes and aspirations.
Victoria Road is a long road that stretches from Sea point all the way to Hout Bay. This lovely coastal road is featured several times on this website as it includes at least two passes in its total distance. This specific pass starts at the western end of Camps Bay at Bakoven and ends about 8,5 km later at the natural neck between the last buttress of the Twelve Apostles and Little Lions Head above Llandudno. It is a road which is appreciated and revered by locals and tourists alike and is well engineered with properly banked turns and smooth curves. It is a joy to drive, ride or cycle whilst offering fabulous views of the Atlantic coastline and the 12 Apostles.

We are as passionate about maps as we are about mountain passes. A good map is a thing of beauty that can transport you into the mists of time or get your sense of adventure churning. It is a place to make discoveries about deserts and seas, mountains and lakes; of roads leading into places you have not been before; a place to pore over holiday destinations or weekend camping trips. A map is your window to the world.
