This Sunday we are doing the Garsfontein 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. At this Bapsfontein 4 way stop the groups will split and the short ride will continue to the Bapsfontein BP Garage to regroup.
The long ride continues straight along the (R25) road towards Bronkhorstspruit. At +/- 44km we will turn left onto Garsfontein drive (M30) and head towards Pretoria for 22km. At the Garsfontein Drive and De Villebois Mareuil Drive intersection, we turn left and proceed to the Delmas Road (R50) intersection. Here we turn left and then right at the Rietvlie Reserve and continue on Nellmapius Road and the Goedehoop Ave intersection. From here, we turn left, head towards the ST Georges Hotel, and follow the normal route back via Olifantsfontein, then Pomona Road and Simba Chips. This longer ride will be approximately 115km 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.
