a redirect isn't really cloaking and in this case the redirect is aimed at the referred visitor and not the bot.
Cloaking - Webmaster Tools Help:
however, your method could be viewed by google as Sneaky redirects:

this would work just as well for your purposes, if you end up using this:
in this case its a "legitamate usage.
perhaps if you described the intention/purpose of your redirect you could be shown a better method.
