Midweek Off-road Some exciting news for BMW Motorrad Club Cape members, visitors & friends.
Some exciting news for BMW Motorrad Club Cape members, visitors & friends. Firsts up, a mid-week off-road trip.
Starting from Wednesday 29th September the “Club” is going to start, on an add hoc basis, arranging mid-week on and off road rides including 1 or 2 night overnight rides.
These rides will allow those lucky enough to get time off (or retired as in my case) to visit new places or the old favorites but without the crowds. This does not mean that the normal weekend rides will cease, on the contrary, we are giving the Club members and visitors more opportunities to ride. It will also attract (I believe) riders that don’t like riding in bigger groups.
The invitations will go out by the latest on a Wednesday for the following weeks ride. Acceptance of the invitation must be received by the following Monday with full payment.
Wherever possible the bookings will be made on a DB&B basis or at places where we can purchase braai packs, wood, etc.
Hopefully members will offer suggestions of additional places that we could visit that fit into the criteria as per above.
Our first excursion on Wednesday 29th September is an “off road” one night ride that will take us through the Tankwa Karoo to the Central Karoo via Laingsburg to our overnight stay at “Ons Karoo plaas” on the Seweweekspoort road.
Here we will receive Braai Packs to braai for ourselves. Breakfast is not supplied, we will breakfast in Ladismith. Wi-Fi is available in certain areas, towels and bedding supplied. They run an honesty Bar for our refreshments.
On Thursday we ride the Seweweekspoort exiting at the Village of Zoar before stopping to stretch our legs in Ladismith. 35kms from Ladismith in the Kannaland we take a left Turn on dirt all the way to Montagu then on home.
Costs are as follows……………..
Accommodation single or sharing R250.00PP.
Braai pack R120.00 per person including 2 salads and farm bread.
If we have a communal braai (which we will) wood is free.
