Starting From: Nikita Pub and Grill

Starting Time: 7h30 for 8h00

Ride Description: Starting from Nikita we head out on gravel road until we reach the Broederstroom Harties tar road (R512). We cross the R512 twice and then ride through single track almost all the way to the gorge. After riding through the gorge and quarry, we ride some country tar road past Oberon Resort. Then its up and over the concrete strips for an awesome view and then down the Crocodile river pass and single track. Finally we ride the long haul back uphill to Nikita which consists of lots of single track, a little tar and more single track/gravel road. The finish is a magnificent fast downhill back to the Nikita parking lot.

NOTE: This is a Lime group and this is how it works:

You have to email Mike (mikeburrell74@gmail.com) with your cell number if you want to come with this group. If Mike doesn’t contact you by phone before Saturday, the ride group is ON he will not contact you unless the ride is off). If there are not enough riders by Saturday (at least 7 without the leader), the group will be cancelled and you will not be able to ride with the standard yellow group (their pace will be too high and the mountain climbing severe). So do not just pitch for the ride group on Sunday – contact Mike. This rule applies to all Lime Groups when we have them.

No beginner or green level riders. Visitors at R30.00 per rider!

Directions: Directions as per the normal club Nikita ride

Contact: Mike (o82 490 5819 – after hours only)
