Nomads Trial :: Wellington :: June 12th

On Sunday, Brian, Michael and myself cleared some superb new sections for the Nationals.  And we set some really nice sections for the trial this Sunday.  Please join us at Bases Farm, Wellington, for this month's trial.  Russell is your host (he is an enduro rider).

There will be masters, experts, intermediates and clubmen.

The venue is superb for spectators and children.  There will be luxury ablutions, courtesy of Sales Hire, the sections are close by, and the last few sections are in the river under big shady trees. 

  • Time: Sunday 12 June, 9:30am for 10am start (approx 4 hours)
  • Questions: check our FAQ for information about what to bring, do, be etc
  • Remember: R50 per bike entry fee, and some refreshments for yourself.

  1. Take the N1 from Cape Town towards Paarl.
  2. Take Exit 59 onto the R301.
  3. Stay on the R301 for 10,7km then turn right into Bo Dal Road at a traffic light. Wellington Primary School is on the left.
  4. Stay on Bo Dal Road for 1.2 Km then turn left onto a gravel Road. One of the signs points to "Blue Bell Glen".
  5. Stay on this road for approximately 2,2km until the end which is where the trial will be. The road goes past Imbuko Wines.

As an alternative, to avoid riding through Paarl and the suburbs on the R301, in point 2 above if coming from Cape Town:

  1. take the Klapmuts turnoff (R44) and ride all the way to Wellington where you
  2. turn right onto the R301 to Paarl.
  3. Then turn left into Bodal road at the first traffic light.

The distance is about the same, but the R44 has a speed limit of 100km/hr and few stops.

It's about an hour's drive from Cape Town. Be careful of speed traps.
