  1. Im heading to Mossel Bay over December/January and keen to ride with groups. Let me know please. Thanks.
  2. Good day everyone, Hope you are all well and getting pumped for those holiday rides. I am going away to Ballots Bay (by George) and Noetzie (by Knysna) this December (2021), and I have planned a few possible routes to do on my gravel bike, but in terms of safety, I’m not sure about any of them. I will be cycling alone, unless anyone wants to meet up and join me (send me a DM and we can see if we can arrange something). Could anyone tell me what routes listed below are best, and if there are any other routes I could maybe look into. Route: From Ballots Bay to Wilderness: https://www.strava.com/routes/2881620904960023052 Route: Ballots Bay to Knysna Heads Route 1: https://www.strava.com/routes/2886926504172100228 Route: Ballots Bay to Knysna Heads Route 2: https://www.strava.com/routes/2886949716579436164 Route: Ballots Bay to Knysna Heads Route 3: https://www.strava.com/routes/2886975249377243920 Route: Ballots Bay to Knysna Heads Route 4: https://www.strava.com/routes/2894679346089661106 Route: Ballots Bay to Harold’s Bay: https://www.strava.com/routes/2887331328237224382 Route: Riding around Noetzie Tree Plantations: https://www.strava.com/routes/2886634106250838660 Route: Noetzie to Plett: https://www.strava.com/routes/2886978934725230212 Thanks, Kevin
  3. Following last year's example in a desperate attempt to find greener pastures, a Southeaster-less, damp riding environment and even some loam, we headed about four hours up the N2 towards the Garden Route. Click here to view the article
  4. Some advice please guys. My wife and I will be on holiday in Hartenbos again from next week and as in the past plan on doing lots of cycling on the extended network of gravel roads in the area between Mosselbaai and George. In the past we had no safety issues, but the last time we were there was 2 years ago, so what's the situation like currently wrt safety on these back roads? Any roads/areas that we should avoid? We normally ride early mornings. Thanks!
  5. Are there any early morning group road rides in an around the George area?
  6. Logo and all, now we're talking! Coming to ride your MTB in the Garden Route? Not sure where all the cool trails are or how to get the most out of your ride? Sounds like you need Rent a Riding Buddy! (Super Hero costume still in the design phase) I have a 5 seater van and bike trailer that can accommodate 4 riders, bikes and luggage should you need to be collected from your accommodation or even the George airport. Let me know the type of riding and specific area you’re interested in and I’ll make sure you have the best bang for buck experience. My personal favourite is single track, the downer the better, but I enjoy all kinds of riding including a bit of gravel grinding. Along with post ride beer, coffee or G&T – SO fashionable right now I tell you. Services offered: Showing you the good stuff, including swimming holes on a hot day. Collection and drop off. Gravel riding - passes in the area or breakfast/sundowner cruise. LIGHT road riding – my gravel monster isn’t the fastest beast on the road. Frank discussion concerning not letting your bravado overtake your skill set... Skills Training – grownups or kids. Basic bike setup Advice on non-bike related tourist activities, unofficially. Pricing depends on services required as well as area. Let me know what you’d like to do with how many of your friends and I’ll work out an itinerary and cost. Even if it's something I haven't done before, with enough prior notice I'll research and test ride before you arrive.

  7. http://www.netwerk24.com/Nuus/Misdaad/skiet-hom-skree-rower-toe-hy-fiets-kaap-20170329 Deur Jackie Kruger 29 Maart 2017 15:33 “Skiet hom! Skiet hom!” het 'n rower geskree toe hy en 'n medepligtige helder oordag ’n vuurwapen op ’n student gerig en sy fiets naby die Montagupas-afrit, ’n gewilde fietsryplek buite George, gebuit het. Jacques Roux (21), ’n student aan die George-kampus van die Nelson Mandela-Universiteit, het Maandag omstreeks 14:00 op die N12 buite George in die rigting van Oudtshoorn gery. “Ek oefen vir Knysna se Oesterfees en wou by Witfontein gaan fiets ry,” sê hy. Kort voor die afdraai na die Montagupas, sowat 500 m van die verkeersirkel in die woonbuurt Heatherpark, het Roux twee mans sien stap. “Hulle het gelyk soos gewone ouens in oorpakke wat dalk op pad werk toe was. Ek het niks daarvan gedink nie en aangehou ry. Maar toe ek verby hulle ry, het hulle my skielik gegryp en van my fiets af gestamp. Hulle het toe ’n mes en ’n vuurwapen uitgehaal en die een het geskree: ‘Skiet hom! Skiet hom!” Hulle het toe ’n mes en ’n vuurwapen uitgehaal en die een het geskree: ‘Skiet hom! Skiet hom!Jacques Roux, studentDie rowers het geen skote geskiet nie, maar Roux se fiets en sy tablet gegryp en op die vlug geslaan, die een te voet en die ander een op die fiets. Roux sê die twee het in die veld in die rigting van Oudtshoorn verdwyn. Hy het na sy ouerhuis in Heatherpark geloop. “Ek het ’n skraap op my knie soos hulle my van die fiets af gestoot het, maar dis al. Emosioneel is ek ook fine en 100%. Ek is net dankbaar dat ek leef, dis die Here se genade,” sê hy. Hy het twee keer op dié fiets, ’n Giant, aan die Cape Argus-fietsrybyeenkoms (nou die Kaapstad-fietstoer) deelgeneem en aan die fietsrybyeenkoms op Knysna se Oesterfees. Die voorval is by die polisie aangemeld. Niemand is nog in hegtenis geneem nie. Mense met inligting kan Roux se pa, André Roux, by 083 456 0618 bel.
