Tour de Jozi (Extreme Ride)

June 20, 2015 @ 06:30 - 17:00

Ride Groups:
Red and blue only for the tour and yellow and red for the Mini if you can ride the distance. The Blue group will run at an average pace of 16km/hr (7 hours with stops), the red group will average 14km/hr (8 hours), 6 hours for the Mini – if you cannot do this pace off-road, you will end up being left behind!

Ratings – Technical: 6/10 Hills: 8/10 Distance: +-94km Tour de Jozi and +-75km for the Mini

Starting From: Mug and Bean Paulshof

Starting Time: 06:30 for 07:00 – we will leave at exactly 07h00 because it is one of the shortest days of the year – if you are not ready to ride, you will be left behind. 

Ride Description:
Tour – Starting at Paulshof, we ride West and then North to Leeukop and onwards to Riversands. Then on to Northern Farm, Heron Bridge, Lanseria, Logwood, Ngwenya (for a pit stop), Ruimsig, Strubens Valley, Northcliff (stop at the garage for some pre-climb food), Northcliff Hill, Alberts Farm and then a mad dash down the spruit back to Paulshof.

Mini – Also starts at Paulshof, to Clay Oven, North to Lonehill, across to Broadacres, Through Farmall to Logwood and on to Ngwenya (pitstop), Beyers Naude to Strubens, Northcliff Hill, Alberts and Home.

Note the hills are not that steep (except for Northcliff), there are just a lot.

Please note this ride is not for beginners or green/yellow level riders. However we are prepared to entertain a yellow group for the fit yellow and not so fit red riders on the Mini. You must have a degree of confidence that you can make 75km i.e should have ridden close to that before. Email ride@jmbc.org.za if you would like us to have a bash at putting something together. If there are enough of you we will confirm the yellow group on wednesday before the ride.

Also all riders – please send me your registrations for the ride to ride@jmbc.org.za (provide contact cell numbers in case of problems) – Please advise which group you want to ride in. 
We will cap ride group size at 20 maximum so get your registrations in early. We will cut off entries on Wednesday the 17th June 2015 so don’t leave it longer than that – you will be disapointed……

Visitors welcome at R30.00 per rider.
