Title: Sissy ride on tar to Magaliesburg / Dream Lodge ride around Magaliesburg
Post by: Red on October 20, 2007, 05:06:24 pm
I am 100 % positive that I will be able to do a nice calm ride to Magaliesburg.  Unfortunately it will all be on tar and I will have a nice breakfast at the hotel there before coming back.

Anyone joining me?

I know it will be the last Sunday before the Bash (which I can't go to), but it is only for a few hours.

Always interested in a relaxed ride. When you planning to go and what is weather prospects?

I tried to add the ride on the calendar, but I am sure some evel mod is blocking me.  ;D

It will be on 4/11/2007, the Sunday just before the Bash.

I have no idea what the weather will be like, but apart from thunderstorms there will not be much that will stop me from riding.  The baby went for full service, new tyres, chain and sprocket and she has been waiting patiently for 3 months for her mistress to get mobile again.

Hi everyone,  I am negotiating something special with a newbie on the forum. 

He must just confirm some of the details with his better half and then we will come back to you.  This will hopefully include a lunch/brunch.  He "aplogised" for a 4km dirtride (which I can walk if neccesary) to get to the destination.    :o  The sick, lame and lazy can stop there and party with me OR the guy can take those willing for a good dirtride.  So the old boys can go and have fun while we are sipping some tea or cold ones.

Will come back as soon as I have some more info.

If this comes off it is going to be great fun.

Bushbaby it will be nice meeting you too.   ;D

OK,

Here's the deal. For those who are interested in a rideabout, can we meet at the spar in Magalies at 7:30. I have posted the route below, its about 150km, 90% on dirt, we'll go over the Witwatersberg ridge about three times, and around some of the game farms etc in the Naauwpoort valley. We can then go back to my place at about 10 or 11am ish and meet up with Red and a group of people apparrently knows as 'the stragglers' . (www.dreamlodge.co.za for map or GPS 25 58'34.3"S 27 23'00.2"N). You can then either braai or I can arrange a catered breakfast. Please let me know the numbers for either, PM or email.

This ride will now be done with two groups. 

One for the sick, lame and lazy and the BIG one on the nice dirt roads around Magalies, with a braai / lunch at DB's place near Magaliesburg.  The route is really looking good.

DB9 I'll be joining you at the Magalies Spar at 07:30.  Looking forward to the ride, looks like an enjoyable route you've mapped out.  NS are you and Tulip joining us as well or are you joining Red on the tar route from the Total One Stop on Krugerdorp Highway (between Sandton and Lanseria offramps).  Bushbaby and Kykdaar, would appreciate it if you could pm Red.

OK, So that is +- 10 for brunch. We'll be able to work around that. I hope the weather holds out. 100km of slimy mud will suck just a little bit. I look forward to meeting y'all.

How does one get to this Magalies Spar from JHB (Alberton) and how far is it ? Would like to join the dirt ride ,but have to check how far it is from home first.
Title: Re: Sissy ride on tar to Magaliesburg / Dream Lodge ride around Magaliesburg
Post by: DeepBass9 on October 31, 2007, 07:27:31 am
Where's Alberton? Only Joking. If you can get to Magaliesburg (the town, not the mountain range), you'll pass the Wimpy on the left as you come into town, first road left goes to the Spar. Actually there is only one road in magaliesburg, so you can't really miss it. For everyone else going to Dream Lodge directly, the directions are thus:

Go to magaliesburg, drive through the town, at the Y junction take the R509 to Koster. Drive 17km and take the 'Wind in the Willows' turnoff to the right. This is a farm road so it is not marked on maps/gps. The road goes in the shape of a question mark (?), take the first road right, then there is a dream lodge sign, go right there, then follow the road up to the top of the hill and there you are.

Post by: DeepBass9 on October 31, 2007, 07:29:08 am
Magalies is about 60km from the center of JHB, so you're in for about 300km in total

I so wish I could join you guys!  :'(

Sundays are generally reserved for other priorities but its also my birthday so its family etc...
I might still be a late entry for a couple of hours.

Enjoy!  I've done some of those dirt roads not to long ago and they where busy grading the surfaces so it should be in good condition.

Sorry guys, just back at work now - got stung by a bee under my eye - I'm allergic - so with a face now down to the size of a soccer ball (and it ain't pretty), I don't think I'll make it.  Next time 4 sure.

OK.  I have been given a clean bill of health by the doc.   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D    I must just take it easy and not go too wild.

I decided 100km on dirt qualifies as easy.  :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

SO, NO MORE SISSY RIDE!!!!

I will be at Spar Magaliesburg at 7:30.

Miena Moo,  I will get you at the Kentucky in Wierda Park at 6:30.

The only reason I will not ride will be if it is raining.

Will everyone going PM me your cellphone numbers?  If it is raining we can make further plans.

Hi, I know I am rather late but I was very busy. I was hoping to ride with Red, etc on sissy ride on tar but now Red is now fit for the gravel ride.

Red, very glad to hear your good news!

Are there anybody who are still interested on the sissy ride?

And more or less what time will we complete the ride? Will we have a brunch or braai? what are the costs?

Neither, we are relying on chaos theory to bring the whole thing to order. 'The behavior of chaotic systems appears to be random. This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future dynamics are fully defined by their initial conditions, with no random elements involved. This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos.'

Due to the chaotic nature of this ride, we decided to make it as difficult as possible. ;D ;D ;D

The doc gave me permission to ride again - easy stuff.  I decided 100km on dirt is easy stuff.  So the sissy tar ride is off.   

I am meeting Miena Moo and family at the Kentucky in Wierda Park at 6:30.  We will be at the Total at 6:45.  Join us from there.  It will be fun.  None of the people in the group are experienced dirt road riders.  I did not touch my bike for three months, so it is going to be an easy ride.

Hope to see you at 6:45.

I sincerely hope this did not bring too much structure to the chaos.   I love it.

From where ever.  Be in Magaliesburg at the Spar at 7:30.

No problem.  You have probably seen the ride report about two bikers having a jol on their bikes and 5 bikers caging swearing in different languages because we had little ones in the car.  We all missed out on the very nice ride.

DB9 says that there are lots of other roads that he can still show us.  Can't wait.
