Paardeberg Unit Event Calendar
Ride%20photo%202013.jpg

The intent of this calendar it to advise members of events and rides available to them during the Riding Season. The Unit encourages members to take the initiative to lead rides using email and our facebook page to advise each other when they are heading out for a ride. This year there is an emphasis on riding together for fun and friendship.

REMEMBER to come back to this page often as the calendar will change frequently during the riding season as new items are added. Check out our new section: Motorcycle Routes and Maps for more riding options

NOTE when there is a "Unit" ride/event it will be identified by Unit - for these events it would be great to have maximum participation of members or info by INFO - just letting members know of these events and opportunities to ride. Email messages will be sent out to the unit reminding members of "Unit" functions: I.e., Memorial Ride
