On request by a few people I have put together a trip for the beginners group of riders, its an all inclusive trip, camping on the lush green grass in the beautiful Biedouw valley. Its an easy ride to our overnight stop of about 300 kilometres. Next morning we leave for an outride of similar distance and back to camp! The Sunday we make our way back with about 250 kilometres.
Wellington to Biedouw valley. A drive through the Swartland to the Sandvelt potato area will bring us to our lunch stop! After lunch we make a brief tour through the Namakwaland and work our way to the lush grasslands in the Biedouw valley where we will camp and have a “Rough and Ready” dinner! The days stories will be told around the campfire!
Distance for the day 300 km
After breakfast we leave the camp and luggage behind and travel the area in search for good photographic opportunities and travel the east area of the Namakwaland, after lunch a return to the Sandveld will see us back at camp. At the camp fire the fictitious and real drama's of the day can be told, the famous fillet will be served as the night creeps in!
Distance for the day 280 km
Going home time! Back to Clanwilliam and following the dam we arrive in Citrusdal and eventually Ceres. Going through one of the Bains brothers wonders we arrive back in Wellington where our customary farewell drink is served at the “Deck”.
