ENSURED ENTRY SPOT
Riders participanting in the 2021 event will have first choice of entering before general public for the following Ride The Karoo.
It has been a very busy and uncertain year for us and we have had to do a fair amount of preparation to make sure the ride will be one to remember.
We are at a crucial point in time where we need to make a decision on whether the event can proceed or not. After many discussions with all the various parties and recourses involved we have been advised to postpone the event with a couple of weeks. As with a lot of events we have had the same predicament of outcome should we decide to postpone to far in the future the event might fall on a 3rd predicted wave. We have carefully studied all the statistics and are confident that we can provide a safe and fun event for all.
Even though the information indicated that after the 15th of February we will be able to host the event it is too much of a risk for us and you as riders. With all the information we have gathered we have concluded that it will be possible to host the event
12-13 March 2021.
We know a lot of you have already made travel and leave arrangements but please understand that we would like to host the event just as much as you would like to participate and we hope that these changes can make the event possible.
