Yeeeeeeee Haaaaaaaa Sutherland here we come for the Annual BMW Motorrad Club Cape "Winter Ride" - weekend 30-31 July 2016.

All welcome.

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

As usual we will have 3/4 groups going on this very popular weekend. We encourage you to persuade your partners/friends to come along with you and enjoy the ride and evening with us.

  • Group 1 will be for the Roadies 


  • Group 2 Will be for Off Road Beginners


  • Group 3 Off road Intermediate/average  


  • Group 4 Off road Experienced 


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 Maaitjiesfontein.

Oh……..what about the cost :

Dinner and our back up vehicle expenses : R300.00 per person

As usual Theo and his 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 (vegetarian, Halaal, etc)



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 with your bookings - 023-5711340 :-

Some accommodation numbers:

·         Jupiter Guesthouse: 023 571 1340

·         Jupiter Selfcatering: 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.

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


Your posting on the Forum (using your real name and email address) and or an email to me (russell@aroma.co.za) with your and your partner's name please as well as your simultaneous payment of R300.00 per person into the Club Account will confirm your booking. Make sure you have confirmed accommodation booked before paying.

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


Please state your group with your booking, either “TAR” or “DIRT 2, 3 or 4" depending on your group choice!

Who will be leading which groups? Possible route for the off-road groups?

I need to decide which group as Yolandi is contemplating between beginners off-road or roadies.

Sutherland Bookings - Thanks to those people who have already booked. This is just a reminder that Geoff Russell is currently away on a club tour and will most likely not reply or respond  to any queries at this stage. 

It is important that anyone wishing to join this ride book accommodation ASAP as this is a very popular time on the Sutherland calendar.

Good dag Geoff,

Quick question, my wife (riding pillion) and I really want to join, I'm not yet sure if we fit in Group 1 or 2... I did the off road training level 1 the other day, how technical will the off road beginner class be? I really want to do the off road (group 2) course but do not want to slow you guys down as we will be two unexperienced people on my GS 1200...

What do you suggest?
