There are two exciting opportunities in the next two weeks:

1. Lesotho Easy Off-road Tour

There has been one cancelation on our Lesotho Tour leaving on the 18th March.  The guy had an incident with a Taxi yesterday wrecking his bike and injuring himself. He has withdrawn from the Tour and his space is up for grabs.

Does not matter how good or bad they are she will sort through them for a special project she has undertaken.

I know that this is very short notice and that most people are probably still recovering (either physically or financially) from their December Holiday, but I’m going to give it a shot and see if there are any interest in doing a short notice overnight camping trip. This is the perfect little get away for those of us who didn’t had a break over the festive season or for those who just want or need a quick break from the city rush.

Only 7 days leave needed.

Pillions encouraged with experienced riders.

So a visit to The Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho has been on your “bucket” list for some time but you have never had the right opportunity to get there. Here is a fantastic opportunity for both you and your partner to join a group of like minded Dual Purpose Motorcycle enthusiasts on a visit to Lesotho and just to put the cherry on top we will throw in a visit to the Rhodes area of the Eastern Cape as well.

Club Cederberg "Off Road" Day Ride : Sunday 30th October

Come along and join the Club for a nice easy dirt ride to visit Gerrit & Chantal at the famous Cederberg Oasis.

The ride will suit most riders but not rank beginners. This is not because of difficult terrain but rather because of the distance we will need to ride.

In order to keep the ride "easy" we will go to the Oasis and return on the same road.

If it is a hot day it may be an idea to bring your costume & towel along.

We will have lunch at the Oasis.
