    Default bike / quadbike to Ponta

    Hi,

    Ons gaan Ponta Malangane toe vir 'n week.

    Is dit 'n goeie idee om die bikes saam te vat of nie?

    Hoe veilig is dit om daar te ry?
    En kan mens langs die see op die strand ry?

    it is safe, locals cant ride them yet so no worries. lol

    curfew for quads in ponta is 10pm if they catch you after that its a fine and your bike gets impounded until you leave!

    there are nice spots all over the place so no need to damage the beach!

    That's a good idea take them with you to Ponto, then at least you won't be a nuissance for us at Bilene. Beach driving is against the law and you will be fined or try and bribe your way out and then blame the country for being corrupt.

    Renier, P. Malongane has special parking places for quads/bikes. Not allowed to ride them inside campsite, but lots of playgrounds nearby.

    As for riding on the beach, please think about it carefully. Is the joy you get really worth the damage to the environment, the irritation to other users of the beach, and the resentment you create within the local population? Not to mention that it is illegal.

    see you there in June!

    Tron,

    My friend there will be half a million at Bilene anyway. You will not notice one or two less. Wait till the week-end brigade arrives from Maputo with their pick-ups and thumping BMWs.

    Peace in pieces!
