Summary of a typical Outride.

 The cyclists stayed at Donald's House in Thomas River. The Saturday ride was a 70km, past some historical sights, across plenty of jeep track to join up with the Henderson Valley Road. After a couple of "buiscut stops" they cycled to Rob's house for lunch. The afternoon took the group further down the picturesque valley over technical gravel roads. The eivening  braai with local meat was enjoyed by all before the tired legs were finally put to rest.

The Sunday ride was 35 km over previously unridden jeep track in the Thomas River area with spectacular krantz top views and white knuckle downhills. The roast at the Old Thomas River Village was a fitting end to a great weekend.

The whole weekend only cost the the riders R600, which included accommodation, food and Cathcart's famed hospitality!!

These are some of the comments we got back from the riders:

The weekend was superb! We made new friends.There is nothing I can think of that could have been better or was missed! Maybe a few more biscuits next time haha - well done John! - Lionel & Maureen

 
The routes were wonderful and we enjoyed the scenery. We so appreciated having a back up vehicle and were humbled by the hospitality and friendliness of the people on the farms. We felt so welcomed and loved by all that we met. That was really a highlight for us, to meet you all and be able to chat and get to know you a bit. We were so grateful for all your effort and planning that you did! Thank you and WELL DONE! We would love to join you again in the future!  - Brad & Tash.

 

THANK YOU for making it a great outride! WELL DONE to you guys….we had an amazing weekend! J JThanks for all the effort and all the detail that went into making it perfect….those guys that did not arrive missed out BIG TIME!! We will definitely spread the word that this is a weekend not to be missed. Thanks  -  Sandi & Carel J
