The Lormar Cycle Tour is going to be held at the same venue as the Cycle-Fix MTB Tour and got its name from the farm which breeds with Arabian horses, Lormar Endurance Stud. At the previous Tour, meat was awarded as prizes and soon adopted the nickname, “Race vir vleis”.
Expect a bigger and even better tour with more entry options but space is limited so plan your holiday arrangements for the 21st to 24th of September 2012 to join in on this awesome tour! Well planned weekend with a public holiday on the Monday. The tour consists of 3 days and 4 stages. Beautiful Karoo scenery will be enjoyed on jeep-track routes. Expect to see some wildlife while riding through all the different farms en route.
Our goal for the tour is to do a bike-handover for under privileged farm schools in the area. Funds will be raised to buy bikes, the bigger the fund, the more kids will be on bikes! A documentary is going to be made through-out the week leading up to the tour, filming the handovers. We’re really excited about this project!
An exciting announcement is the 3 Sani2C spots now up for grabs to win at the lucky draw! This means 6 people as Sani2C is a team entry! Interesting fact – Sani2C has 3000 entrants and a waiting list of 2000 people, so this is a great opportunity!
There will be lots of entertainment to enjoy including donkey cart rides, horse riding, Bushman paintings on the farm and the Beer Brewery in Nieu Bethesda.
Accommodation includes a three-man-tent with toilet and shower facilities. Alternative accommodation can be arranged at guest houses in the nearest town which is Middelburg (about 50km away). There is also limited space available at a four-star guest house situated 20km away from the camp. More information is available on the website below.
A bike-wash and service centre will be provided as well as a club house with 3 meals per day included in the entry fee.
Transport is now available from Pretoria, Bloemfontein and Cape Town as well as shuttles from Middelburg to the farm on the gravel road. Bicycle transportation is available from the Pretoria/Johannesburg area and can also be arranged from Bloemfontein.
Come experience an unforgettable Tour in the heart of the Karoo!
