I would like to announce the inaugural Roodeplaat Annual Damduikers Ride and Picnic (yep, it's a mouthful) so we can shorten it to the Roodeplaat 85km Picnic Ride or whatever.
This prestigious event will take place on the 22nd March 2015 where The Argus (commonly known as the SA World champs) and other heroic stories of rides and glory days will be told by the warriors in attendance.
The 85km ride will start at the entrance to the Roodeplaat dam at 6.00 am. Those staying for the picnic brunch braai should have all the necessaries with them (it's a bring your own event) and the vehicles can be parked at the pre booked campsite. There will be an entrance fee payable at the gate.
Please let me know if you are keen to attend. Diarise the date now.
All welcome and this invitation may be extended to others.
A backup vehicle for the ride will be provided.
