The Rotary Club of Brits Hartbeespoort is organising the Dam Bike Meander around the famous Hartbeespoort Dam on 21 November 2021—engines will be warming up at 9:00 am.
The event is a new concept for motorcycling and stems from the club’s previous Classic Car Meander that started with just a few cars at the first event but grew to more than 100 cars at the most recent one. They have described it as something like a treasure hunt mixed with The Amazing Race, where teams will ride to various famous or historical places around the mountainous area and complete tasks.
It starts at the Hartbeespoort Holiday Resort, the venue of the last Impala Rally, Rhino Rally and Pretoria Toy Run. Registration costs R130 per person and can be done either upon arrival or beforehand via the Rotary website – rcbh.org.za. Each entrant receives a free metal badge, bandana, and complimentary ticket to the famous Hartbeespoort Cableway valued at R240. Muffins and coffee will be for sale during the morning from Cafe 2 Go.
At 9:00 am, the event starts with the various teams each receiving their first location. Once the groups arrive at these locations, they will be given a task – these range from finding something, playing a hole of putt-putt, shooting a bow and arrow, and various others.
Once the task is done, each team will receive the following location and task. Each team will have to complete five tasks before returning to Hartbeespoort Holiday Resort. The last activity will be a slow race, and everyone is free to socialise.
Food at the venue is provided by Kuierkerk, with all proceeds going to the church. The resort will have a bar on hand together with a Coke Truck. Live music will be played by Costa until 14:30 that afternoon.
Prize giving will start once everyone has returned, with prizes going to both teams and individuals, including a raffle for a wheelbarrow of booze – tickets for the raffle go for R25 each.
Of course, as is the way with all events organised by The Rotary Club, all proceeds from the event will go towards charity – in this case, lesser privileged children. It will be a fun day out with friends, riding motorcycles and doing it for a good cause.
