Welcome to my blog, these are the ramblings and musings of an (upper) middle aged biker and if you enjoy braais, (barbeques) beers and motorbikes then hopefully you will enjoy what Janet and I do; we do lots of braais, we drink lots of beer and we tour South Africa on our motorbike, which at the moment is a BMW R1200RT. Join us, read about what we do and please leave us your comments.

Lady bikers get together for Agape house in Vredenburg

Sunday dawned cold and slightly wet but that did not deter the ladies, many of whom drove up from Capetown to support "Agape", a home for abused or neglected children in Vredenburg. The call went out for local ladies to assist and Mercia, first lady of the local chapter of the Mohicans posted the request on social media.
Apparently the home does not get government finance but depends on donations and local support so there is always a need for anything from clothes and shoes to food and blankets.

The Meeulanders' own Monica was there and soon bags of clothing and food were being ferried in much to the excitement of the children.

Another wonderful initiative from western cape bikers. Photos by Kareen Neethling. Well done ladies, this sort of thing most of the time goes on unnoticed but it happens all the time, wherever there are bikers.
