Did you know that you don't need a GS to be able to throw some camping gear into your panniers and shoot off for a night under the stars at the end of some pass or scenic ride? Ask Alvin Kushner (who rides an RT).
Don't forget the club meeting this coming Tuesday, where we will be finding out about all the biker-suitable camping gear and other goodies available from Outdoor Warehouse.

The Club is doing a lovely GS dirt tour to this beautiful part of our country from the 12th to the 24th August 2010.
This "laid back" tour staying in Hotels every night and with virtually every second day a "rest" day might just be what you are looking for. On these "rest" days you will be able to just relax with a book, go for a walk on the unspoilt beaches, sleep late or join me on short challenging outrides for those seeking an additional adrenalin rush.

Oops, we made a mistake. The Think Bike stickers that were made available at the last meeting courtesy of Hennie from Kontra Signs need to be destroyed.
While the intention was good, those stickers are in violation of the copyright and registered trademarks owned by Think Bike. They have asked us to destroy the stickers, and to use only the genuine article. Club-branded stickers are still a possibility, provided we go through the official Think Bike channels.
The request is friendly and we want to collaborate - so please help us in this regard.
Due to the cancellation of our West Coast Tour I have tentatively booked us the Waterval Resort www.watervalresort.co.za situated in the Gifberg Mountains just outside Vanrhynsdorp.
This lovely resort with it's beautiful Waterfall and tame sheep has 15 cottages that sleep 4 people each (open plan) at a cost of only R250.00 for 4 people sharing. Or if you want some privacy R250.00 per couple.
Camping is also an option at R50 per tent plus R10 PP.
