The Rotary Club of Brits Hartbeespoort’s Dam Bike Meander will take place around Hartbeespoort Dam on 21 November.
The event is a new concept for motorcycling and follows the club’s popular Classic Car Meander that started with just a few cars at the first event but grew to more than 100 cars at the most recent one. Classic car owners have described it as something like a treasure hunt mixed with The Amazing Race, where teams will ride to various famous or historical places around the mountainous area to complete tasks.
The Hartbeespoort Bike Dam Meander will start at the Hartbeespoort Holiday Resort, the venue of the last Impala Rally, Rhino Rally and Pretoria Toy Run. It kicks off at 09:00 with the various teams receiving their first location. Once the groups arrive at these locations, they will be given a task – these range from finding something, playing a hole of putt-putt, shooting a bow and arrow, and various others.
Once the task is done, each team will receive the following location and task. Teams will have to complete five tasks before returning to Hartbeespoort Holiday Resort. The last activity will be a slow race before participants are free to socialise.
Registration costs R130 per person and can be done either upon arrival or beforehand via the Rotary website – rcbch.org.za. Each entrant receives a free metal badge, bandana, and complimentary ticket to the Hartbeespoort Cableway valued at R240. Muffins and coffee will be for sale during the morning from Cafe 2 Go.
Food at the venue is provided by the Kuierkerk, with all proceeds going to the church. The resort will have a bar on hand together with a Coke truck. Live music will be played by Costa until 14:30.
Prize giving will start once everyone has returned, with prizes going to both teams and individuals. There will be a raffle for a wheelbarrow of booze!
All the event proceeds will go towards charity, in this case, to underprivileged children. It will be a fun day out with friends, riding motorcycles and doing it for a good cause.
