Nomads Trial 25th August 2019 - Welgelegen Farm Kuilsriver
The farm is family-friendly, with shade, grass and ablutions.  Bring your own refreshments/picnic.

For Beginners - what to expect:
Arrive around 9am, we have a riders' briefing just before 10am and start at 10am.
There are 8 sections (they are short), and we will ride 4 laps through them.  The beginners' line is called "clubman", and is set so that it is safe and does not require commitment.

Directions
From Stellenbosch side ride 2km on bottelary road.  Turn left at J.Bonthuys Welgelegen farm (small dirt road through vineyard). Continue to T junction, turn left. At barn turn left and about 150m further a staggered intersection turn right into an open area next to a forest.  This is the spot.

From Cape Town:

N1 and turn off at Kraaifontein.  Turn right to cross over the N1 at the top of the offramp.
Drive all the way straight through Kraaifontein and two circles until you reach Bottelary road.
Turn left and ride about 2km to a right-turn onto a gravel road to Klipheuwel.
Drive about 3km straight until you reach Welgelegen farm gate.
Turn left past the barn, 150m to a staggered intersection.  Turn right and stop.
Keep those feet up

Spent an hour and a bit watching some of the guys today on the farm Welgelegen The nice cool weather aided the guys with the challenges on hand and good to see some WD faces out there as well. As always my bulletproof CAT phone will take crappy pics or blame the operator... aiming at a predicted pic opportunity the response is to slow. 
Pristine classic TY Yammie  found- hope its for sale and just look at a 2019 Beta- absolute work of art

The sandy sections were definitely easier than the rock hopping but still, some good skills were required

21st and 22 September is the 2-day Nationals held on the same venue, come and enjoy the day to support these guys
