Pomona – Bapsfontein - Rietvlei
This Sunday we are doing the Rietvlei Dam ride via Pomona and Bapsfontein. Both long and short ride leave the VA and head down Electron Ave (Isando). From there we head towards Pomona and continue to Petit. At Petit we will stop and gather before heading to Bapsfontein. We all gather again at the BP Garage at Bapsfontein. At this point the long and short ride split.
Goes straight from the BP towards Rietvlei Dam. We then turn left toward the dam and continue on Nellmapius Road to Irene Cafe. From Irene Cafe we follow the normal route back via Olifantsfontein, then Pomona Road and Simba Chips. This longer ride will be approximately 105km and take around 3.5 to 4hrs with stops.
From the BP we head towards Serengeti and turn left onto Riverview Road (Signposted BREDELL) just after the trees, we will go straight with this road until the traffic lights where we will turn right onto 3Rd avenue, at this point we will regroup and head back via Pomona Road and Simba Chips. This shorter ride is approximately 85km and will take around 3-3.5hrs.
