The BMWMCC marshals are providing marshals for this mass ride.
The notification was sent to each marshal and they are all steadily booking online.

Many thanks to the marshals and we look forward to supporting this event with the many other enthusiastic motorcyclists who come and support this cause.

It was announced at the meeting last night that the BMWMCC members will meet at Plattekloof Engen at 07:00 to depart to the Grand Parade to make a "grand entrance"!!

Hope our members will support this worthy cause to honour Madiba's legacy.

I attended the event briefing Tuesday 14H00 at the City hall in Darling Street, Cape Town on the Grand Parade.
We expect some 1000+ motorcycles.
The marshals are inclusive- we have marshals from the BMWMCC, the Harley Davidson Club and the Think Bike marshals.

 

Apologies from the organisers- the website for registration crashed and is not working.

The Bikers for Mandela mass ride.

The ethos is to continue to build upon the legacy of Nelson Mandela, with dignity and respect.

07H00 onwards, bikes start gathering.
              Darling street from Corporation street to Buitenkant street will be closed to traffic except     for MyCity busses.

Please observe COCT rules- no food to vagrants. You only create expectations and problems.


If you cannot find parking in Darling Street, then use the overflow area on the Grand Parade close to the Darling/Buitenkant street intersection.

09H00 Call to order at the steps of the City Hall

               Address by Zelda La Grange

               Address by the COCT Mayor

               Rider safety and ride route briefing

09H40   The ride started by the mayor

               Mass ride is led by Cape Town City traffic officials, two lead marshals followed by the three side car combination bikes, followed by the small-bore bikes, followed by the rest of the riders.

 

The ride route is 69 kilometers long and should take 50 minutes to an hour.

Depart along Darling street which becomes Sir Lowry road.
Turn Left out of Sir Lowry road onto the M60- Christiaan Barnard street.
Christiaan Barnard street takes us onto the N1 onramp towards Paarl.
COCT Traffic police escort leaves the ride after Sable road.

The ride turns right off the N1 onto the R301.
After 9.5 kilometres we turn right into the Drakenstein prison.
Bikes park on the left near the statue of Nelson Mandela.
Bikers place their contributions of sanitaryware for girls on the plinth around the feet of the statue.
 

There will be some refreshment stalls and some music entertainment.

The Drakentsein prison has invited all bikers to use the prison restaurant where good food at good prices is on offer.
 

Please observe the No Alcohol on bikes and no littering rules, ride carefully and be considerate of other road-users.

Hi Wayne ... you won't need it, just bring the sanitary product.

That's all that's needed and your participation.

Thank you.

Hello Dusty, yes I'm afraid it does effect the route.

THe alternative with COCT Traffic has been approved.
The least impact on the rest of road users and for biker safety, is to route N2, R300, N1, and then R301.


We start as planned and head down Sir Lowry road, left on to Christiaan Barnard.
However, we turn right off  M60- Christiaan Barnard street and onto the N2 on ramp, 
then follow the N2 to the R300. (sticking to centre lane of N2).
12km on the R300 and feed on to the N1 to re-join the original route.

13km  from Start to the N2/R300 interchange
9km from N2/R300 to the N1/R300
17km from the N1/R300 to the N1/R301 interchange
10km form the N1 to Drakenstein prison
50 kilometres from start to the prison

The prison offers good meals at good prices at their restaurant which they will have open for the bikers.

This is to be an annual event.

 

Tribe coffee will be at the Grand Parade to offer a great cuppa and some snacks.

You can also purchase sanitaryware from the MIMI Girls as well.

Thank you to all the marshals and to the club who supported this event.
The Marshalling went very well, in cooperation with Harley club of Cpt and the think Bike marshals.
Incident free, successful and the first of an annual event.
