Sani pass adventure - on a hired mountain bike 2011

I saw that BBC Top Gear S23E2 went up the Sani Pass in three high cost high power SUVS.  The track from the South Africa border post to the entrance to Lesotho at the top is a long dirt trail with stream crossings, precipitous edges. The views are fantastic high up in the Dackenberg range.

BBC has a big budget, I had a rented mountain bike. Friend Ian drive me and bike from Underberg to the base of the climb. It took a solid 3 hours and bit to crawl up to the top. The clouds came down and the chill descended on the last section.
