The 3 Dams Ride Returns...!

The signature ride that in the days of the Rinderpest was often presented as the first ride of the year is back.

For those looking for a great tar ride that takes in 3 dams - Hartebeespoort, Buffelspoort and Olifantsnek.

Departure is from BP Centurion, 07h30 for 08h00.

Brunch venue: Van Gaalens Cheese Farm - visit their website for more info: www.vangaalen.co.za/
Distance: 200kms + 75km return

Work on two and a half hours of good tar riding with less than an hour home.

This ride is newby-friendly and pillion friendly.
Aside from one turn outgoing and 2 T-junctions, all turns are LEFT turns.
This means we are not crossing heavy oncoming traffic on the route.
I have also avoided toll gates, but there will be one open toll gantry.

We do not have to hurry as Van Gaalens's breakfast menu is open until 12:00...! :+

PS - Bring a cooler box so you can buy some of their VERY lekker cheese to take home.
