Orrie Rofty 2019!

Dear Experienced Dirt Riders

It is that time of the year again – Rofty time!

If the images on this post (see below) awaken the Gravel Slayer in you, then please read further…

We would like to invite you on a challenging, and breathtakingly beautiful, dirt riding long weekend over the Orrie Baragwanath Mountain Pass. The Orrie is a 30 km pass that twists, turns and switchbacks through the Lekgamaleetse Nature Reserve. It is one of a few really true off-road passes which traverses the Wolkberg mountains in a scenically rich Nature Reserve. Lekgalameetse (called 'place of water' for its numerous waterfalls, rivers, rock pools and streams) is south of Tzaneen, adjacent to the Wolkberg Wilderness Area in Limpopo. It is also in this forest that the endangered white-throated Samango monkey lives.

Itinerary
We will depart at 6:30 for 7:00 on Friday morning, 25 October, and will take a few dirt back-roads as a warm-up on our way to the Orrie. We will spend most of the day on the pass and through the Nature Reserve. We will then head to Tzaneen to our venue for the weekend, the OppieOewer Guesthouse, where we will enjoy a well-deserved home cooked dinner on the banks of the Letaba river.

On Saturday we are in the capable hands of our host Gerrit du Toit, also an avid adventurer and off-road rider. He will treat us to some of the best gravel roads in the Magoebaskloof and Wolkberg area.
We will head back to Pretoria on Sunday morning 27 October.

Road condition
This ride is for very experienced riders. Friday will be very technical and challenging (bring your own tow rope!)
Saturday will be a combination of beautiful scenic roads, tricky river crossings and interesting obstacles. Tracks will not be available before the ride.

Costs
1) Guesthouse: R1600 per person for the weekend including dinner, bed and breakfast.
2) Other costs:
a. Lunch for Friday and Saturday (we will decide if we stop somewhere, or take own snacks)
b. Drinks

This ride is limited to 8 riders.
