|Venues & Bike Rallies
in Cape Town by Gregory Hudson
When it comes to rallies,
Cape Town's got the venues. Coast to coast, the scenery is spectacular,
the roads are pothole free and un-policed and the campsites are a plenty.
But First a Few Rules...
Municipalities and campsite
owners view motorcycle rallies with a little trepidation. They are a very
territorial, especially when the areas involved are out on the edges of
Cape Town. "Dirty Banners" "Doughnuts" and "rude behaviour" are frowned
upon by the locals.
Ellensrust campsite in Stilbaai
is right off the N2 to Mosselbay. Featuring a spacious caravan park next
to a lagoon. Just take the Stilbaai turn off and look left approximately
25 kms down the road, you'll see the signs.
Catch the Freedom Road Rally
at this location which is organised by the Christian Motorcycle Association.
No firearms are permitted
on this site.
Nekkies Holiday Resort
This venue near Worcester
can be found along the infamous Breede River. Includes braai areas, hot
showers, swimming pool and a tarred drag strip.
Here you'll catch the Annual
Swallows Rally happening on the 24th - 26th of March. This rally is said
to be one of the most talked about in Cape Town - Curious? Then find out
The Buffalo Rally in Mossel
Bay is for motorcycles only...you have been warned! Hosted by Nomads Motorcycle
Club, this is one event not to be missed.
Basically, anything goes
at the Buffalo Rally, just respect the property of others. No cars. bakkies,
quads, trailers and caravans will be allowed access to the campsite.
No-one knows exactly where
this rally will take place! One thing is for sure though, when in Mossel
Bay you'll know it when you see it.
As usual, badges, caps, belt
buckles and t-shirts will be on sale.
See you at "The Buff".
