We are doing a group ride from PTA to Harties and back on Saturday.
There is a link to download the route file at the end of the post.
There is no charge for this ride - but bring some money or a card for coffee at Jasmyn
We will be departing at 05:45am from the Parking lot of the Waverley Plaza Shopping Centre, from the area in front of th Postnet. If is safe to leave your car here for the day.
The ride circular route is 113km, and we will head out through Pretoria west, on gravel most of the way, skirting the southern slope of the Magaliesberg. We will then go past the Harties Cableway, and ride on through town, towards Jasmyn, where we will stop for a coffee/snack (for your own account)
We will then cross over the old train bridge into broederstoom, along some more farm tracks, and then make our way back towards Hartebeespoort, going back towards the cable car, and then returning along the same gravel road at the foot of the Magaliesberg.
Pace will be between 20-22km/h. It is a relatively flat route most of the way.
We will provide a backup vehicle, as well as water refills along the way. You are welcome to provide your own snacks etc that can be carried along in the backup car.
the route is split about 50/50 between gravel and tar, and is suitable to MTBs and Gravel Bikes
If you plan to join us on Saturday, please whatsapp me on 0632202895 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, just so we have an idea of numbers for the day, and that we dont leave you behind at the start.
