January 2023 (First Ride of the year)

We were so excited and looking forward to today’s ride!  Meeting with old friends and new at 8:15 and leaving for Wolseley via Du Toit’s Kloof pass which as always was a challenge with the wind.  Stopping for a photo opportunity at the top of the pass with the breathtaking views is always a winner.  We then headed onward to Wolseley and The Sir Garnet for a fantastic brunch and some ice cold refreshments.  Andre and his team were fantastic hosts.  After a leisurely brunch it was back to Cape Town via Bains Kloof pass with the narrow road and a warning of leopards for the next 23kms, no sightings of leopards though but a few baboons were sighted.  The pass was narrow and definitely not to be attempted when inebriated or in the dark.  The natural splendour showcased on both passes was fantastic!  A great ride and time was had by all.  Looking forward to the next one.

January 2023 (Trip to Wolseley)

My trip to visit Sir Garnet started with a beautiful sunrise over the Hottentot Holland mountains. Putting on full safety gear at 7am it was already 27C. Biker’s are mad, confirmed. We we met up with the total crowd of 16 at a fuel stop on the N1 in the Winelands district. After coffee, Red Bull, chocolate bars and a few pain killers we departed for the majestic mountain passes of the Cape. Just when I thought our fearless leader was totally lost we came across the gem of the Wolseley village and hotel and pub. Rumor has it that it was never won in a raffle swindle during the early sixties and today still remains in the hands of the original swindler. One wonders if he was also a Moth? Cold brown drinks were enjoyed by all followed by a huge scrumptious breakfast, things that make a biker’s heart beat faster. We left after a great time enjoyed with fellow bikers and bomb-shelled to our homes and local drinking holes. Temperatures were in the high 30’s and even the low 40s. A day to remember and enjoyed by the brothers and sisters of the best club in the country. Viva MMA Cape Town Viva!

October 2022 (Canon Ride)

Just before COVID the idea started germinating and was spurred on by COVID. People and bikers were desperate to interact with their fellow bikers, but we were hamstrung by the restrictions.

So, the idea of having an open-air event took shape in the guise of a scavenger type ride and the “Cannon Ride” was born.

After many meetings and planning the resultant battle plan was formulated, the riders would be given clues, that they would have to decipher, visit, receive recognition that they were there, hand the evidence in at the final clue, Red Barn Shellhole and the party could begin.

Here follows a collage of the events and fun on the day.

A Huge thanks to all, Red Barn, Riders, MOTH’s, Band, Cannon firing, Piper and The Team

Cape Town Cycle Tour

Cape Western MMA doing duty as repair marshals during the Cape Town Cycle Tour (CTCT), It’s all for charity so time and fuel given willingly.

Our duties – individual bikes leave at half our intervals and ride with cyclists offering assistance to supply and fit tubes, pump up tires, fix chains, tools and moral support. Most important, if a rider goes down in the road and is injured, park bike between approaching riders  to act as a shield against the herd.



Knights of St Christopher  charity ride

MMA have assisted Knights of St Christopher in marshalling their charity ride to Andrew Murray Children’s home since starting their drive some 6 years ago, helping this well deserving children’s shelter in Wellington.

Ride started at Bellville Velodrome 08hr30  where a marshal and rider briefing kicked off proceedings with about 250 bikes heading down the N1 toward Wellington, shepherded by the disciplined MMA marshals, looking snazzy in their hi-viz vests.

Arriving safely at the AMCH, bikes parked, we started queuing for a HUGE breakfast, prepared and served by KoSC, home staff and the kids and a grand job they did, other than a long ride there is nothing that make a biker happy than a good breakfast, with beans!

The feast was followed by KoSC thanking all support and sponsors, then much anticipated prize giving where the MMA cleaned up, most notable the prize for oldest biker, well done Julian.

A quick whip round between the MMA guys and girls yielded R1100 that was donated to the home by Frank our vice chairman, a great day was had by all.

 After proceedings the MMA drifted off to support the Wellington, Komeshu shell hole’s bowls day (Just around the corner), where bar stocks were severely depleted.
