Road Tour from Cape Town to George

Road Tour from Cape Town to George.




So, I am planning an informal, semi-supported "Road Tour" from Cape Town to George along the R60 and R62. The format will look something like this:


Date: 1st week of January 2013 T.B.C.


Day 1:

Table View to Ceres +/- 140km.


Day 2:

Ceres to Monagu +/- 125km.


Day 3:

Montagu to Ladismith +/- 140km.


Day 4:

Ladismith to George +/- 155km.


Day 5:

Drive back to Cape Town


This will be a completely social ride and not an official event. The main aim of the ride is to have fun, so we will be stopping to take photo's, jumping in the rivers (in the middle of summer) and enjoying a very interesting stretch of South African roads.


There is no entry fee and you will have to pay for and organize everything yourself. I can definately help with bookings and organizing transport etc. I'm guessing it will will cost you about R2000 - R2500 p/p for the 5 days all inclusive.


We are planning on staying in B&Bs for 3 nights along the way. I have accommodation in George for quite a few people in Gorge. We will drive back to Cape Town on the last day.


I want to have at least 1 car for every 3 riders following us the whole way, which will be used as back-up vehicles and transport back to CT. So invite your spouse to travel with us.


The route is mostly flat. I would like to ride at a decent pace, but we will all be riding together.


We already have a few guys, but the more the better. Let me know if you are keen. We can start a mailing list and organize some training rides.


(We also need a name for the tour :) )


Peace out!
