With all the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the big city, it’s often difficult to find the time to hit the dirt roads with your motorcycle. It’s commonly thought that “getting out there” means you must load your bike to the hilt with everything you don’t need, and spend six weeks roaming the back roads of the Eastern Cape for it to qualify as an adventure.
It’s a romantic notion that we all aspire to after watching Charley and Ewan ride around the world. Here’s the thing…
Just a few hours from Joburg are some of the most scenic back roads South Africa has to offer, and guess what? You can have a fantastic adventure on a Sunday without having to take the kitchen sink with you, or six weeks off work!
You might be thinking well that’s just a standard run-of-the-mill sort of ride that I do once a month on a Sunday morning to get out of cutting the lawn, well we have some good news for you! On Sunday the 26 March, SA Adventure, in collaboration with Triumph Johannesburg, is taking you on an outride with a difference…
What makes this ride different from the rest you may be asking? Well, it's not just going to be a ride, it’s going to be an Adventure Experience to the Vredefort Dome…
The Vredefort Dome is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is the oldest meteorite impact site in the world. It’s also known as an astrobleme. The dome was formed by the impact of a gigantic meteorite, larger than Table Mountain when it collided with the earth millions of years ago. With a radius of 190 km, it is also the largest and the most deeply eroded. The impact was so great that it melted rock instantly and shattered the earth in such a way that it created some pretty big mountains in the area. Advantage to us because the route we travel on our Sunday adventure takes us right through these scenic areas and mountains.
We have meticulously set out the route to suit all adventure rider skill levels. The route is mostly off-road, but just as you feel you may have had enough of the dust, we slot a section of scenic blacktop into the mix to give you a little rest before joining the dirt once more. The off-road stretches are not technical, with easy enough gravel roads suitable for novices and pillion riders.
The SA Adventure team will be there to support riders who may need a guiding hand on the off-road sections. You will learn some new riding skills and feel more confident taking your machine off-road in the future, and that is another reason this is an experience and not just another Sunday outride. SA Adventure will provide backup for the day in the form of lead and sweep guides, a support vehicle, a trailer and a medic on the day, we’ve got your back…
The cost of this unique adventure outride experience is just R150.00 per person. Yes, that’s it one hundred and fifty bucks! For that small amount of change, you get all the above, a delicious burger and chips (beef, chicken or veg), and one of the best milkshakes you’ll ever have. You’ll get to “build your burger” at the stunning Thabela Thabeng lodge situated inside the Vredefort Dome. They also have a section of the restaurant that you can explore dedicated to the history of the area and displaying some of the ancient fossils found nearby. Again, an experience, and not just your average outride!
We’ll all meet up at Triumph Joburg from 7h00 am for a coffee and a chat and embark on our journey to the Vredefort Dome at 8 am. We should arrive at around 1 pm for lunch at Thabela Thabeng, and you are free to explore the area a little more after that, maybe even stay over in one of their beautiful chalets…. You’ll also get to see the new range of 900 and 1200cc Triumph Adventure Bikes showcased on the day and get the opportunity to ask any questions you might have about them.
As an extra bonus, each rider on the day will be entered into our competition to win an all-inclusive SA Adventure Off-Road Motorcycle Training weekend away near Clarens!
