Midrand to Irene (Tough Ride)

April 19, 2015 @ 07:00 - 12:00

Ride groups:  Green, Yellow, Red & Blue

Ratings:  Technical: 5/10; Hills: 6/10 (green group 3/10); Distance: 30-64km

Starting From: Carlswald Shopping Centre

Starting Time: 07h00 for 07h30

Ride Description: Riding from the centre of Midrand all the way to Irene and back will take us along dirt roads, single track, jeep track and a very small bit of tar. We will be riding some single track across from Red Barn as well. Optional quick drinks break at the Smuts House turn-around for Blue and then back home mostly following the normal Midrand to Irene tracks. A relatively flat route – the only hills of note are to be found on the Irene loop. The green group won’t go all the way to Irene / Smuts House and will therefore not have these hills.

Green riders: This is not a ride for beginners but for experienced green riders!
Contact Wayne (number below) that you want to ride with this group. If he doesn’t get back to you before Saturday, the green group is ON (he will not contact you unless the ride is off). If there aren’t enough riders by Saturday (at least 7 without the leader), the group will be cancelled. So don’t just show up for the ride on Sunday as you might not have a group to ride with!

Bring money for breakfast afterwards. Visitors @ R30 per rider

Directions: Coming from Johannesburg on the M1 motorway and heading for Pretoria, take the New Road off ramp in Midrand and turn left onto New Road. Drive 600 meters and turn left at the robots into Harry Galaun/Lever Road. Turn first right into the Carlswald Shopping Centre. Park in the main parking area as near to the fence parking and Cappuccino’s as is possible.
