Newbie / Meet new Wilddogs ride
« on: June 14, 2007, 06:37:09 pm »
I would like to do a nice newbie ride on the roads we rode with Wino over Breedt's Nek.  It will be nice if we can meet everyone and the Cheese Farm for breakfast and then ride out from there.  It will be nice to do the "Kanale" as well.

The cheese farm is just to the north of Hekpoort, called Van Gaalen (think).

Hi Miena - I don't know about the sand.  It is a newbie ride, if we paddle through the sand, we paddle.  We will take every obstacle as it comes.  I want it to be a nice relaxing ride that everyone enjoy.

The experienced guys will be bored stiff.

I'm not experienced and won't get bored. I have to stay home and look after the monsters.


Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

My very very humble appologies...

Ek het die heading mis gelees ::)

I will post directions, planned route and times closer to the time.  Anyone coming along with a GPS, or are we going the adventurer route using a map or follow our noses?

You're it then.  Will look at the map (antique GPS) and we can discuss the route then.  Thanks.

Directions from Lanseria for Ama Ride Ride to the kaas plaas: Take the R512(Hans Strijdom Dr) north towards Harties. Turn left at the Broederstroom "T" - (Direction Pecanwood). Stay on the R 512 (dont turn off to go over the dam) for approx 15.5km - 'till you get to another "T"

Turn left the "T" junction R560

The Van Gaalen Cheese farm is on the right just about 150meters down from the "T" junction
