Event Details

Training weekend Off Road …. BMWMCC 25th and 26th June 2022

You are hereby invited to a scenic, adventure-filled weekend of fun, led by the BMW Motorrad Club Cape training team.  We have a fun-filled weekend planned, that will assist you to gain confidence in your motorcycle and various environments, as well as touring.  The weekend will consist of a short ride to our overnight accommodation, where we will be doing training and some out-rides, then dinner with like-minded souls.

Skill Levels:

We have interesting routes planned for various skill levels that will suit Level 1 and Level 2 riders that have completed the BMW training days.  The level 1 routes will be basic and on hard-compact gravel and tar mountain passes, while the level 2 routes will take riders through a variety of gravel-highways, jeep tracks and mountain trails.

Riders are welcome to bring partners/pillions along for moral/emotional support. There is also plenty of time for partners to relax and enjoy the scenery and hiking trails at the accommodation should they wish to.

This weekend is suitable for those riders that are new to gravel or to take you to the next level. The level 1 route will be pillion friendly. Level 1 and pillion will form a group and Level 2 riders will form another groups.  The purpose of this weekend is to build up kilometers under the belt so that you gain experience in motorcycle touring and help you be a more relaxed and experienced rider on the “loose stuff”.

About the rides & training:

Please note that riders who would like to attend the training weekend, need to have at least done the level 1 or 2 respective training at BMWMCC training days or Country Trax beginner/intermediate, or similar.

There will be plenty of stops so that you can adjust your gear and bike as needed, because this makes your ride more comfortable.

The Level 1 and Pillion group will be led by Neels and Carel. They will take you on a relaxed, scenic route with stops so as to discuss and demonstrate rider position and techniques. The route will take you on farm roads with suitable surfaces for the beginner and because a rider may need to clear the cobwebs.

The Level 2 group will be led by Arno and Theo. You will be taken on routes with more challenging and technical areas.  Only riders who have completed the Level 2 training days will be allowed on this ride.

Both groups will regroup at the training venue to spend some time doing field training and to re-cap on the morning’s ride.

Accommodation, dinner, breakfast, and training fees are included.  (Fuel, snacks etc will be for your own account).
