This training will give you experience of managing your bike in thick sand and dunes.

You will learn

  1. Bike setup for riding in sand
  2. Rider position for sand riding
  3. Getting going and stopping in thick sand
  4. Reading dunes and riding appropriate lines
  5. Traversing the dunes

We will meet at the "Atlantis Dunes Permit Office, Atlantis, Cape Town, 7349" (put this into Google Maps), at 8am on Sunday 18 Aug.

After some admin, bike setup and an introduction to sand riding, we will enter the dunes.  As a group we will ride to various locations in the dunes where we will experience and ride different conditions.  There will be plenty of opportunity to play in the dunes and gain confidence in riding sand.

At lunch time we will make our way out of the dunes, ensure everyone is accounted for, and head to Blouberg for lunch and a drink.

Please arrive with a half-tank of fuel - you do not want a full and heavy bike, and you also want to avoid fuel overflow in the dunes as it is a catchment area.
