Come join us for another great light dirt ride (with an optional red after brunch - Breed's nek)

We will leave from the usual point (BP Centurion) following the N1 north, get off at Zambesi off ramp and turn right onto the R513; followed by a left onto R573. At the railway bridge Kameeldrift East we'll get onto the "fun stuff". The railway service road will take us to Brits (+/- 50km) - this is mostly hard service with a bit of loose rocks that can, for the better part, be avoided by choosing your lines better . From Brits we will follow the R511 over the N4 and turn right onto Canal roads to the R513, after about 1km on the R513 we turn right onto the canal roads again for the final stretch of dirt that will spit us out on the R512. Left onto the R104 leading us to Tropicana to feed our faces and enjoy something to wash down the dust.

We should be done eating by 11'ish giving us time to either head back home via tar or head further west to Breed's nek.

Please remember water and snacks - always be prepared!
