Enduro riders - Garden Route?
« on: May 29, 2012, 04:53:00 pm »
Hi Dogs
I have been thinking about getting into enduro riding ,and just messing around in the dunes and plantations here in the Garden Route.
I am currently looking to buy a 200 KDX or something similar (2-stroke) to start riding with, problem is that I don't know anybody doing the same here in the George area.

Would appreciate some pointers/advice and joining like minder okes on out rides in this area.

Cheers

There is an enduro track in Mossel bay on Rietvlei farm, R60.00 a day, braai spots, shower & toilets. Turn off left to the farm, just past the Engen/Total Garages coming from CT or right just before coming from George side.

Enduro in the Garden Route was killed by MSA! >:(

Hi,

Enduro riding as such is a problem in George. There is no events (except at Louvain which was also cancelled this year) If you would just like to do some bundu bashing, then we must form a group to do all the dirt roads in and around George, like the seven passes, Montegu pass, Paardepoort, Leeukloof, Rooi hoogte pass etc. I own a Honda Tornado 250 and we even did the hel a few weeks ago...

Julle moet vir my laat weet as julle gaan ry.

Sal julle wil join as ek kan.

My AT ken paaie soos sewe passe en Montagu al goed.

Focus on the journey, not the destination.

Gryph jou ktm sal daai bospaaie geniet. Ek weet van een pad wat baie lekker is maar dit lyk ons in bosbou gronde ingaan maar daar is geen borde wat ons waarsku nie.  So ek gaan daai pad beslis weer ry.   Vra doctor dirt om jou ktm te vat en jy die at

We ride every weekend, either Sat or Sun morning  for a few hours. Good idea of yours to get some okes together for a ride.
We are either riding on a farm in Geelhoutboom or the plantations just after Sedgefield this weekend, depending on the weather. Would be nice if some of you okes could join us....just leave the mirrors and indicators at home. :mwink:

I know the place (Rietvlei) well, it is not worth riding there any more, the track is not maintained....full of deep ruts and overgrown with Rooikrans, a bit of a disappointment to be honest.

I have however found  a few nice and technical places in the area to ride.

I am setting up a ride for this weekend, join us if you can. :thumleft:

Riding on a farm in Geelhoutboom Saturday morning from about 08:30 to 12:00, welcome to join us. Bring your plastic, it's quite technical...but slow enough to enjoy. No big DS bikes.
There are toilets and braai facilities.

Let me know if interested. Wihan @ 083 261 4550

Cheers
