BMW MCC Cape : Sutherland Annual Winter Ride : Weekend 27th - 28th July 2013 : 3/4 groups
Yeeeeeeee Haaaaaaaa Sutherland here we come for the Annual BMW MCC Cape Winter Ride.
This ride held every year in Winter has always been one of the highlights of the Club ride calendar and this year is sure to be no different.
As usual we will have 3/4 groups going on this very popular weekend. We encourage you to persuade your partners to come along with you and enjoy the ride and evening with us.
Group 1 will be for the roadies (Ride leader TBC)
Group 2 & 3 for the “dirties” led by myself and Warren and a 4th group depending on numbers. All of these groups will ride similar terrain so one will not necessarily be more difficult than the other.
Gannaga Pass and Middelpos and possibly even Ouberg Pass will be on the menu for the “Dirties” while I am sure that the “Roadies” will find a nice detour to get there with a possible lunch stop at the lovely Lord Milner Hotel in Maaitjiesfontein.
Oh……..what about the cost :
Dinner and our back up vehicle expenses : R250.00 per person
As usual Theo and his team from Jupiter Guest House will prepare a real Karoo Braai for all of us.
Dietary requirements : If you have specific requirements please let me know (vegetarian, Halaal, etc)
NB! NB! NB! NB! NB! NB! NB!
Do not delay in making your bookings as Sutherland is very popular in Winter----------Book immediately
You will need to make your own bookings and here are some sites to look at :
Or just go onto Google and type in Sutherland Accommodation and all the available places will pop up. Be warned that I do not suggest you book accommodation outside of the town as you will get very cold riding home after dinner.
There is also camping for those that enjoy camping cold.
As usual the for peace of mind the Tour will be accompanied by the back up vehicle and the Club trailer that will also carry your baggage should you so desire.
Your posting on the Forum and or an e mail to me (email@example.com) with your and your partners name please as well as your simultaneous payment of R250.00 will confirm your booking. Please remember that once you have booked and paid your payment is non refundable unless you are replaced on the Tour.
NB! NB! NB!
Please state your group with your booking, either “TAR” or “DIRT”!

Please remember that it is YOUR responsibility to book your accommodation in Sutherland. I also strongly suggest that you move quickly with your bookings so that you do not end up booked but without accommodation.
We will be there!
Ters and Karin.
( hope it doesn't snow!!)
I have always wanted to be "snowed in" in Sutherland. However in all the years I have been going there with the Club we have always had really cold temperatures but never snow.........lots of ice but no snow!!!!
Please add Trevor and myself to the 'dirties' group. Meg's is not coming with us this time.
Paid with sorted accommodation.
Sutherland Accommodation is becoming very scarce - Sutherland hotel and surrounding areas is fully booked already.
There is a second big group of people going there on that weekend too. Not sure if it is another biking group.
I have got basically the last provisionally booking there.
I'm in, dirt please! :) Payment to follow.
