Bush behind Parklands/Sunningdale

Hi guys,

For those who don’t know about this spot.............

This is in “my neck of the woods”........ behind Parklands/Sunningdale/Table View area.

There are lots of lil paths you can take and it is HUGE! 
A bit sandy with lots of hoops but it is still fun!
We sometimes also stop by this nice quarry (see in pics).

Just please never go riding there by yourself as we have heard some stories before of people being attacked!

If you would like to join me (and others) the next time we go riding in the bush please leave me a comment below with your number and I will contact you! We are always looking for people to join us!

If you guys know of any other FREE or open spots where we can ride please also add it onto this website. Anyone can make a free posting just like this one!

Directions
Head North on the R27/Otto Du Plessi Drive..... past Bayside Mall.....
Turn right into Sandown Road....
Go all the way down and you will see Builders Warehouse on your left...
If you want you can park your car/bakkie in the parking-lot there and ride from there.

My KDX200 vs Friend's CR250

My KDX200 vs Friend's CR250

This past weekend at the Bonthuys Fun Ride I took my buddy Shaun’s Honda CR250 (this is a 2 stroke for those who do not know) for a spin! Obviously this is a very good bike, but by my surprise I was shocked on how HARD the suspension is. I know this is a MX bike, but WOW, how do you guys ride this bike in the bush with that MX suspension??

The seat is also ROCK hard!

The thing is I ride a Kawasaki KDX 200(also a 2 stroke) and this bike is made for the bush I know, and you can really feel the difference in the suspension, I will pick my KDX way before this CR250 (because I only ride in the bush.....)

But wait.....there’s more..........

I really thought that the CR250 would be ALOT faster than my KDX but it wasn’t hey! It might have been a lil faster but I was quite surprised that it did not have a lot more wooma than my KDX!

The CR250’s engine was recently done over and Shaun even placed a larger sprocket in the front for more wooma. So there is nothing wrong with the bike.

Please note that I am not degrading the CR250 at all, I am just saying how good the KDX 200 actually is to me!!

Enduro World Cross Country Series

Enduro World Cross Country Series

THE FINAL ROUND OF THE ENDURO WORLD X- COUNTRY CAPE TOWN 13 November 2010 at Zone 7

Enduro World Magazine has been running a succesfull series of Extreme Cross- Country Off road Motorcycle events in Gauteng and and Cape Town. The upcoming event is the final championship round for 2010

The series of EWXC (Enduro World X Country) events in the Western Cape has been identified as specific to our region. One of the first and probably the most important factors is the need for spectator growth in the sport. We have achieved this by bringing the event loacation closer to the crowds. We have chosen the Zone 7 Offroad track as our venue. This is only a few km from Milnerton on the N7,on van Schoorsdrift road, the same road as the ostrich farm and it is easily accesible from all areas.

History
Offroad Motorcycles have changed over the years and many different disciplines have emerged, two of these are Moto-X,

which is based on a short circuit consiting of jumps and tight corners and Enduros which are held on virgin land and entail riding over exrtreme mountaous and forest obstacles and other technical type terrains for long distances. In the recent years a new discipline has developed called Enduro X .This has taken the extreme side of the Enduro events and combined it with the intense speed and tight circuits of the Moto X track and these have mailnly been held in in stadiums.

EWXC
The EWXC in Cape Town combines all of the above disicplines, MotoX Enduro and Enduro X and adds some more extreme highlights to event.

We achieve this buy holding the event on the Zone 7 Enduro loop (track) and incorporating parts of the Moto-X track into it. This has been done in the past and has been a succesfull match. To set the EWXC aside from the norm we incorporate 16 man–made obstacles where the spectators will have wild entertainment .Seeing the riders succesfully handle each obstacle with skill and grace or seeing some spectacular sights as the riders get it wrong and battle to find a tracktable route through the obstacle.

The need for more and more extreme sports is not something new its just a fact of life. People have always been attracted to Thrills andf Spills and while they love to see some one winning they also identify with the guys who are struggling.

To Enable us to bring the this event to the public we sponsorship of each obstacle helps fund the event.

The day consist of 5 different 45min heats (Races) and each of these heats are brokern up in to the relevant classes. The will be a kiddies corner for the younger ones, plus wine stating and lives bands throught the day. Food and bevages are availble at the club and stalls and also halfway down the track at the waterholes.

Easy access spectator points at each obstacle and a tractor will ferry the spectators up and down the obstacle route.

If you havnt seen these event before you just dont know what you are missing.
