RALLY OF LEGENDS OUTRIDES - SATURDAY 16 SEPTEMBER 2017
This scenic outrides taking place on the Saturday is either 150km or 350km and will take up to 5 hours to complete for the 350km. The 150km route will be marshaled, the 350km route will not be marshaled, but a lead and sweep will ride along to ensure that everybody makes it back safely.
The Mass ride will start from the Highland Gate Golf Estate Club House and will finish at The Rally of Legends Site. The total distance of the route will be 18km.
We start in Dullstroom immediately after the mass ride, when we will form up for a marshaled ride from Milly's (Opposite MBT Garage).
The short route takes us from The Rally of Legends 2017 on the R540 towards Lydenburg. From Lydenburg we continue on the R37 towards Sabie on the winding roads of the Longtom Pass to Misty Mountain. We will have a drink at Misty Mountain and return on the same route back to Rally of Legends 2017. The total distance of this route is 150km(Click on km's for Link).
The ride will be an unmarshaled ride, only to be assisted by a lead and sweep. We will depart in an informal pack, but the ride is strictly according to the rules of the road. Also remember that any pack or group larger than 2 riders should ride in staggered formation.
The Monster Ride will leave from Highland Gate Golf Estate at 09h30. We will travel towards Lydenburg on the R540 and continue on the R37 over the Longtom Pass. Over the pass we will turn towards Sabie on the R532.
We will have a quick fuel stop in Sabie at about 110km. From Sabie we ride on the R537 all the way to Witrivier. From Witrivier we go to Hazeyview on the R40 for another quick stop at 200km. From Hazyview we take the R535 towards Graskop, another winding stretch of road. From Graskop we take the road to Pilgrimsrest where we will stop for a bite to eat.
The odometer should be on about 260km. After lunch we take Robbers Pass and onto the R36 to make our way back to Lydenburg. From Lydenburg we continue back to Rally of Legends 2017 for a total distance of 350km. (Click on km's for Link)
The 350 km ride is a ride at your own pace. If you feel you cannot remain in the informal pack, you may slip backwards, the Sweep will do his utmost best to remain behind all the riders.
But do not fret - all riders will have the opportunity to take a route map with them for their own reference.
Thought we didn’t have twisties like the Capetonians? Think again!
With this beautiful and memorable ride done and dusted we will be back at the Rally of Legends 2017 rally, ready to rock to the sound of live bands, to join the vibe, and make memories that will last until next year’s Outrides!
