Farmasutra is obviously an opportunity to make a weekend of the journey. There are heaps of accommodation in the surrounding areas including Clarens, Fouriesburg and Bethlehem. For peace of mind, the Fouriesburg Inn is the recommended hotel of choice as we will probably end up having an after party there in the evening. Book early.
For the camping types you are welcome to “pitch your tent” on the big lucerne field at Holey Trails, right in the middle of the action. This can be selected as an additional item within the online entry. Live simple, leave no trace, ride your bike and party from the morning to the evening. Ablution facilities may be limited, but think of this as Woodstock for single speeders…
An new deal has been made available by Gypsy Outpost for the campers. This must be booked separately with them and not with the Farmasutra organisers. More info below:
A team of Gypsies has offered an Outpost at the event to take the fuss out of your camping experience. Their offer is a 1.6m high, 2 man walk in tent with 2 beds, mattresses and a solar lamp at R700. Alternatively, you can deliver your own tent to a drop off in JHB (TBA) and they will erect it for you at a hassle free fee of R250. They will also provide a Bohemian chill out zone for tired athletes.
