Africa Bike Week 26.-30. April Margate KZN South Coast

Maybe it could be fun to do it same time as africabikeweek.com


we can chill at the spot and go once or twice to Margate for the big bash and gossip the Harley Riders and their life style ! One or two evenings over there can be quite some fun, big stage on the beach and some more over the beachfront !

How do you guys like that Idea. Not much effort to do if there are 3 guys its great if there are 30 even better !

Its on

Hi, I just phoned Glen, the owner from the Spot Backpackers. Its okay with him if we do the first South African HUBB meeting there.

Only thing is the 27th is a public holiday so its a long weekend and the place will fill up a bit. He has already 9 bookings for camping, the camp ground cant take much more. And 6 dorm beds are already booked as well.

So for everybody that is interested please book now !

I think we keep it simple, I can go with you guys on some nice gravel roads through the back of the south coast ! And we could do a day ride up to Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve !

Regards

Thomas

Mini Meeting

I just mailed with Grant, and it looks like we will call it a mini meeting. To get it started. And then we will try do a proper HUBB meeting in November - early December(before) or (after the holiday season) middle of January to end of February ! Hopefully on the Transkei Wild Coast in Port St. Johns

Cheers
