An invite to all BMW riders to come along on the 27th of October for a day ride to Mcgregor via the Overberg Region. The ride will be predominately on good gravel roads. Our departure point will be the Engen N2 towards Somerset West, please be fuel and geared by 08h05 for final brief and departure.

As mentioned previously the Overberg dirt roads are laced together and finding a straight route not always that simple, but possible. However, we are not looking for an straight line, but to rather experiance some of the unseen gravel roads in Overberg region. At this point I have to mention that we will not be riding on the Teslaarsdal road (Sorry Andyman).

The ride will see us travel via the Old Bot river pass out towards Caledon and in the heart of the wheat fields. Where we next make our way up towards Mcgregor for lunch. From there it's back home via Brandvlei dam area and up and over Du Toits Kloof or through for those who so choose.
