WHAT TO EXPECT?
Escape the city, the stresses at work and home and join us for a 5 day trip to the secluded area of the Eastern Cape and Baviaanskloof. This is one of our new Tour2Train expeditions, where we combine awesome riding with skills training at the Eastern Cape CountryTRAX Academy in Aberdeen.
The Tour2Train concept has a threefold purpose. Firstly, to have lots of riding fun with like-minded old and new friends. Secondly, to learn to ride a bit better, by spending time on skills training and thirdly to enjoy some of the best riding areas in our country.
We leave Cape Town early on Wednesday morning for Aberdeen in the Eastern Cape. A few stretches of tar to cover some distance and then we hit the dirt to get us in "gravel" mood. On our first night, we spend time around a campfire to try and solve the problems of the world, to forget about Covid-19 and lockdown, keep our laughter muscles in good shape, and off course get to know each other a bit better. We sleep two nights at the Eastern Cape CountryTRAX facility in Aberdeen where we will spend the next day honing some old skills and giving attention to specific riding techniques. On day 3 we ride through the Baviaanskloof and spend the night in Jeffreys Bay. Day 4 take us all the way to L'Agulhas via the Malgas Ferry and on the Sunday we make our way back home via Stanford, Hermanus and Betty's Bay.
Although there are some tar sections, we are going to ride lots of beautiful gravel roads. The trip is therefore suitable for riders who are comfortable with off-road riding, mountain passes and sharp bends (intermediate riders) and would like to improve their overall riding skill and confidence.
This is a small group tour which allow for a more personalised and unique experience.
