The 3 Dams Ride Returns...!

The signature ride that in the days of the Rinderpest was often presented as the first ride of the year is back.

For those looking for a great tar ride that takes in 3 dams - Hartebeespoort, Buffelspoort and Olifantsnek.

Departure is from BP Centurion, 07h30 for 08h00.

Brunch venue: Van Gaalens Cheese Farm - visit their website for more info: www.vangaalen.co.za/
Distance: 200kms + 75km return

Work on two and a half hours of good tar riding with less than an hour home.

Go placidly amid the noise and haste. Remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons...
Avoid loud and aggressive persons - they are vexations to the spirit.

This ride is newby-friendly and pillion friendly.
Aside from one turn outgoing and 2 T-junctions, all turns are LEFT turns.
This means we are not crossing heavy oncoming traffic on the route.
I have also avoided toll gates, but there will be one open toll gantry.

We do not have to hurry as Van Gaalens's breakfast menu is open until 12:00...! :+

PS - Bring a cooler box so you can buy some of their VERY lekker cheese to take home.
