Our destination this time around is the historic Cabo de Rama Fort in South Goa. The roads that lead up to the Fort have some nice corners that are a delight to novice and expert riders alike.
The tentative schedule is as follows:
10:00 AM – Riders from and around Panjim and Bardez will meet at the Heera (Indian Oil) fuel station opposite the KTC Bus Terminus in Panjim.
10:45 AM – Short stop to add riders from Vasco at the Cortalim Circle.
11:00 AM – Riders will rendezvous with members from and around Margao and Ponda outside Leonora’s in Verna.
11:30 AM – The full group sets out towards the Fort.
The total riding distance from Panjim to Cabo de Rama is approximately 65 km and taking into account our stops and group riding, we should reach our destination at around 12:30 PM – 1:00 PM, which will be perfect for a lunch break and some down-time to chill out and network with other members.
We are planning to have a video and photo session (individual and group) en route (weather-permitting, of course), so if you have good video and photo equipment like cameras, portable tripods, etc., please do carry them along with you and help us out!
We will set out from the Fort to return back to Panjim at approximately 3:00 PM to reach comfortably before 5:00 PM
This event is open to all riders, Male AND Female, as long as you have a valid License for your vehicle that day. If you wish to participate, you will have to download, print, complete and submit an Indemnity Form on the event day. This form is available as a Document on our Facebook group page.
Wearing a helmet is the MINIMUM safety requirement and if you have a pillion/passenger rider, they should have a helmet of their own too.
If any individual without a helmet is present, they cannot join us on this ride.
The more riding gear / rain gear you wear, the safer and more comfortable your riding experience will be since there is a likely possibility of riding in the rain.
Rash riding, careless overtaking, racing and stunting on public roads WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!
You may bring any two-wheeler you like as long as it meets the minimum requirements (mentioned below). Don’t worry about your ride being too fast or too slow, we will set up the group ride to accommodate all bike types.
Double-check your bike papers (Registration and Insurance) for validity and ensure that your fuel tank is topped up and tyre pressures are as recommended by the manufacturer. If your tyres are worn out or getting there soon, replace them before the ride. Ensure that all your electricals (lights and horn) are functioning properly. If your bike is found to flout any of these requirements, you may not join the group for the ride.
Please follow the Event Rules & Regulations that are up on the group page for a safe and enjoyable outing.
See you soon!
