9 May Mothers' Day Club Rides

"The Breakfast Run venue for 9 May has been changed from Rooiberg to Beestekraal.
It's a much shorter ride and we want to accommodate Club Members who may wish to spend family time together given that it is Motherís Day.

Beestekraal station will arrange a Buffet Breakfast for the two separate groups arriving at 09h00 (S) and 10h00 (GS) respectively. Buffet is about R50 to R55 per person.

This is only about 100 km from our departure point so the S group will leave at 08h00.
Members can then ride home at their leisure."

"GS riders will probably leave a bit earlier - say 7:00 for 7:30, do some of the canal roads and have brunch at Beestekraal.
Times to be confirmed.

Both groups will depart from BP Centurion, close to Makro, just off the N1 and John Vorster Drive.

Just for info:

I rode the road between Brits and Beestekraal last weekend Ė the potholes are terrible, it is even worse than what we are used to.

Hi Chris

Thanks for the update. I will recce the road again next week-end just to see what it looks like , also given the rain that we have had over the last few days. I will then post and advise if the road is safe to travel.

Kind Regards,

It is not that you canít ride it, but one must know about it and maybe plan for a SLOW ride on that section. Shocked

More Almal,

Ek wil graag vroegtydig terugvoering gee or die pad Beestekraal Stasie toe vir Sondag 9 Mei se Breakfast Run . Ons het hom gister ge=recce. Die pad van die Krugersdorp snelweg is stamperig deur Hennopsrivier tot bo aan die berg en dan is hy 100% tot in Hartebeespport waar ons draai. Daar is n paar slaggate op die stuk pad.

Die pad van Harebeespoort tot in Brits is goed, geen probleme nie. Daar is n nuwe drierigting stop by die Caltex vulstasie net voor ons in Brits ingaan.
Wees maar net bewus en kyk uit vir hom.

Ons het met die Thabazimbi pad ( R511) uitgery Beestekraal toe , die eerste gedeelte van die pad het baie slaggate aan beide kante van die pad maar ons kon om hulle ry. Die pad raak dan beter en verswak dan weer met een of twee lelike gate tot by die Blou Bul Padstal ( Treinspoor ).

Net voor Greens ( Garage en padstal) is daar baie water en sand wat oor die pad gespoel het maar ek dink dit het ook met Saterdag se reen te doen gehad. Die pad is dan weer heel goed tot by die Stasie.

Ons het met die tergkom die Rashoop pad gevat ( Selfde roete terug maar ons draai links by die treinspoor. Ek gaan liewers die pad ry - dit is stiller in terme van verkeer en daar is baie minder slaggate.

Ek wil van meet af se dat as ons binne die spoedgrens ry, die pad heeltemal goed is maar daar is plekke waar ons stadiger sal moet ry. Dit sal ons seker nie meer as n uur vat nie . Ek dink ook nie ons sal altyd in staggered formation kan ry nie maar ek voel dis beter om veilig te ry gegewe die pad kondisies.

Ek sal meer se by die Riders Briefing.

Groete

Deon

Weather looks good so far, but keep those fingers crossed for a sunny day!

Mud! What mud? Then again that Bruno's Alien Mud was some good fun. Very Happy

I was on the canal roads in a bakkie last Sunday, and there was plenty water though if the conditions remain sunny until Sunday, the canal roads will be largely dry, and hopefully the ruts have been flattened and smoothed out.

I won't be able to attend tomorrow evening or Sunday's ride as I am off on a short trip. Remember to take pictures of any fun spots.
