Makadas Ride with Friends: 15-17 Dec
What is this ride with friends?
Just as it says, a group of friends cycling together. Only difference is that we set out routes before hand and organise land access, we will also have a vehicle with all your prepacked water-point goodies at a marked water-point along the way. A fun filled cycling weekend that isn’t going to cost you an arm or a leg….
Saturday eve after the night ride (should we have enough takers) there will be a catered braai: lamb chops, fresh home baked breads, salads and desert for R150.00/ Bring your own cutlery and drinks.
What the weekend’s riding will look like:
15th Dec: Night Ride, runners welcome! ( because you get the gps course you may do this ride Saturday morning on your own and the eve again, if you like) It contains single track and rocky jeep track….
16th Dec: Adventure Ride
17th Dec: Jeep track on game farms
What this is not:
- not an race
- not an event
- no routes will be marked
- no medics
What you do get:
- gps tracks will be made available a few days before the weekend
- Support: a vehicle at one designated “water-point” with your pre-pack goodies and water to fill up.
- Chance to ride tracks and trails that hasn’t been cycled or seen a vehicle in ages
- We will also have longer routes for those training for Epic and Joberg2C but you will have to put your name on the TrainingCamp Newsletter list to get the info on this.
- Cost: R550 per person for the “Ride”
Accommodation: you decide camping or self catering and book it yourself, find a list here.
What it will look like:
Riders will have to sign indemnities prior to cycling certain farms and we will get all this to you before-hand. Route access will be paid and secured as well.
Riders meet up every morning 6am at a designated spot, load their water-point goodies (in a clearly marked “container) onto the vehicle taking water to a “water-point”. From here it is just a leka day out in the Klein Karoo cycling old forgotten jeep tracks, dry riverbeds, animal trails and looking out for game watching you pass by. We promise you something different, fun and brilliant trails!
You do need to book asap, as campsites are filling up and some are already full for this specific weekend. See list of available places below. We also need to get indemnities to land owners before-hand as well as numbers and would like to get final totals in by latest end November.
Should we get enough riders booking we plan to do a spitbraai Saturday eve after the night ride. If not we will make sure that there are enough space so we can all braai together.
