This is the Cradle Loop plus some extra. The Neck and Deck restaurant, which is the start and end point, is at the Rhino and Lion park entrance parking lot.
The route is clockwise and the start is outside the loop. Therefore it will be a turn left onto the route after leaving the car park. The yellow route follows the normal Cradle loop out past Valverde.
Visitors are very welcome to join the club ride as a guest rider. Guest riders must pay the club ride fee of R50. Bring enough extra money if you intend to join the post ride eats and drinks afterwards, which we encourage, to socialise and swap ride stories.
Guest riders are encouraged to let us know ahead of time if joining else arrive at the start point and ask one of the club members to introduce you to the ride coordinator who will assist with the legalities, payment and joining the right group.
There will definitely be Yellow and Red groups.
Blue group will however depend on the number of riders on the day.
Because this ride is not in a private venue, we do require, for safety reasons, a minimum number of six riders for a Green group (shortest distance, slowest pace and technically easiest) so will confirm attendance by 9am Saturday and announce the Green group decision.
