Come And Join The Fantastic BMW Motorrad Club Cape Sutherland Winter Ride For 2018

Bring your Partner

An Event Not to be missed

Yeeeeeeee Haaaaaaaa Sutherland here we come for the Hugely Anticipated Annual BMW Motorrad Club Cape "Winter Ride" - weekend 4th - 5th August 2018.

All riders and visitors welcome.

This ride held annually in Winter has always been one of the highlights of the Club ride calendar for many years and this year is sure to be no different.

We will have 5 groups going on this very popular weekend. We encourage you to persuade your partner/friends to come along with you and enjoy the ride and evening with us.

  • Group 1 will be Roadies slower ride (David ffoulkes)
  • Group 2 Will be Roadies Faster ride (Ian Verhulp
  • Group 3 Off road easy/beginners (Neels Wilken & Magda Le Roux)
  • Group 4 Off road Intermediate (John Carr)
  • Group 5 Off Road more experienced (Geoff Russell)

Ride leaders confirmed.

Please note that the road groups have different routes and one ride is faster than the other.

None of the Off road Groups are really difficult. What separates them more so is the distance the groups ride. The beginners ride is shorter and easier than the others and no difficult terrain should be encountered. The entire Route is on well used gravel roads.

Among other interesting routes Gannaga Pass and Middelpos and possibly even Ouberg Pass will be on the menu for the “Dirties” while I am sure that the “Roadies” will find a nice detour to get there with a possible lunch stop at the lovely Lord Milner Hotel in Matjiesfontein.

Oh……..what about the cost :

Dinner our back up vehicle/trailer/back up driver, 5 ride leaders plus sweepers : R325.00 per person.

We are looking for a Back up 4x4 and driver to tow the Club Trailer (Expenses paid). Contact me if you are interested.

As usual Theo & Dolla and their team from Jupiter Guest House will prepare a real Karoo Braai for all of us consisting of : Lamb braai with Wors, veggies, salads, farm bread, with cheese and jam, baked pudding with cream, coffee and tea.

Dietary requirements : If you have specific requirements please let me know when booking and we will try our best to accommodate your choice.

ACCOMMODATION :

NB! NB! NB! NB! NB! NB! NB!

When you make your booking please let the place that you are booking with know that you are part of the BMW group.

Do not delay in making your bookings as Sutherland is very popular in Winter----------Book immediately

You will need to make your own bookings and here are some sites to look at :

Feel free to contact "Dolla" at Jupiter Guest House to assist you with your bookings - 023-5711340 :-

Some accommodation numbers:

  • Jupiter Guesthouse: 023 571 1340
  • Kambrokind: 023 571 1405
  • Whitehouse: 023 571 1444
  • Ester Jordaan: 023 571 1257

 

Or just go onto Google and type in "Sutherland Accommodation" and all the available places will pop up. Be warned that I do not suggest you book accommodation outside of the town as you will get very cold riding home after dinner.

There is also camping for those that enjoy camping cold.

Please try your best to book in Town as the nights are very cold and you don't want to be driving in these conditions especially after a few drinks.

As usual for peace of mind the Tour will be accompanied by a back up vehicle and the Club trailer.

Below is the 2016 invite in which many questions regarding the ride, tyre choice, etc are discussed. Feel free to read this and I am sure many of your questions will be answered ;

Make sure you have confirmed accommodation booked before paying.

Please note that once you have booked and paid and you cancel, your payment is non refundable unless you are able to replace yourself on the Tour.

A sincere request from the organizers :

We arrange these Tours for your enjoyment. A large portion of the fun over this weekend is riding up to Sutherland in your "group" with your fellow riders meeting new people and creating new friendships.                                                                         Please don't make up your own group to ride to Sutherland.

NB! NB! NB!

Please state your group with your booking, either “TAR 1 or 2” or “DIRT 3, 4 or 5" depending on your group choice! If there are not enough riders in a specific group we will combine them.

Hello, anyone know if there is a still a room open in sutherland anywhere? All the above mentioned (and most of the web listed accommodation) seems to be fully booked.

PS would really be nice if the club (or someone) could set up a "live" website listing all the accommodation and availablity for the 4th. This ride is such an annual "institution" / event that surely this cant be too difficult to do?

e.g. the White House Inn says no more rooms but they do still have a house that sleeps four, but that wont be let out individually. Anyone want to share?
