Dear Dirt Riders

Please join us on the August Game Drive to Dinokeng Game Reserve. It will be a Green ride via standard gravel roads. The road condition is generally very good. Although a few patches have a thin layer of sand on the road, it is nothing more than what is expected on normal gravel roads. We will slow down on these parts and ensure all get through. Experienced Green riders should not have a problem.

If there are Orange or Red riders in the group, then they will take a shortcut through Refilwe and play in the Tweedespruit riverbed until they meet up again with the Green riders.

(Please note a change in the venue since the original post)

After Refilwe we will ride through the south of Dinokeng, and then turn back towards Pretoria and stop for breakfast/lunch at Ludwig's Roses. The restaurant serves excellent food with many of the dishes and drinks having rose infused flavours - definitely something to try. There is also a great playground for the kids if you want to take your family with.
