14th Annual

Joburg to Durban Run

25, 26 & 27 July 2008

Friday 25 we met at Vaal Star Stop (Villiers) for breakfast. Departing 9.30am we rode on the N3 to Monte Vista Star Stop just before Harrismith, then onto Estcourt Ultra City, Cato One Stop, then after the Mariannhill plaza we rode up the North Coast highway to the La Mercy Beach Hotel.

Saturday we drew our first cards at breakfast and then started our 300km Poker Run, down the south coast to the Oribi Gorge and back.

Michel was brave enough to do the 170m high King Swing. Then hit the road back to Durban haba (that place where they peck the sheeps) and then to So Sushi in Umhlanga.

Saturday diner was a lekker braai at La Mercy with a few drinks and lots of reminiscing of the weekend ride... so far.

Sunday after breakfast we jumped on our respective bikes and headed for home, with many happy memories.
