Picnic on the Lawn bike tour is back because you asked for it! There is no better way to kickoff our 2019 bike tour calendar than with a great route, lots of fun and a great vibe with good music whilst you enjoy a picnic on the lawn. This year we added a little twist to this bike tour, you pay for one night but can stay for two at no additional cost. The WAVOLT Adventures camp will be ready on the Friday and you can join us on Friday afternoon for a relaxing evening chilling out while listening to some of the great bands playing.
The Bike Tour
On Saturday morning we will meet at Peregrine Farm Stall from where we will take you on a stunning route of around 300km through the Overberg. We will ride back roads past places like Teslaarsdal, Karwyderskraal and all the way to Baardskeerdersbos which will be our turning point. After we refueled in Stanford we will head back towards Grabouw riding a combination of dirt and farm roads to our destination at Bodemloos kombuis on a farm in the Grabouw district.
Intermediate skill level – This bike tour offers a fairly comfortable route and should be easily navigated by the average rider. It does however require you to be comfortable riding at 80 KM/H on dirt roads. The roads in this area are mostly solid pack dirt roads but depending on traffic and when last it was graded there could be a little loose gravel here and there.
Our planned arrival is around 15:00 to allow you to settle in and wait for your partners to arrive. For the rest of the afternoon we will chill out on the grass having a picnic and enjoying the vibe and good music. For this tour we did not include dinner on Saturday evening as you can order a pizza from Bodemloos Kombuis or bring your own picnic basket.
