President’s Chat – 24 December 2020

As this disaster that is 2020 draws to a close, we look back and think of generally speaking how lucky we all were, and how difficult it is for others who have lost loved ones, their livelihoods, their homes and cars, their self-respect, etc., all due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As Wing Riders, we don't always realise how fortunate we are to have an organisation such as the Wing Riders which has for many of us, come to represent an extended family, sharing passions and friendships. A collective shoulder to cry on, an ear that listens, a group that shares...

Western Cape Chapter: Weekend run to Arniston, 20 to 22 November 2020

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht André begin ewe gewillig die Wing opvryf vir die naweek, terwyl ek die weer dophou. Dit lyk of die wind heel naweek in Arniston gaan waai en dit gaan 33 grade wees Vrydag in Worcester, waar ons bymekaar moet kom. Toe besluit ons, nee wat, ons is te lui of te lief vir ons gerief. Dié naweek kan die Wing maar sy vlerkies toevou. Ons is darem nie die enigste op vier wiele nie. Daar is ander ook wat weens gesondheid of 'n Wing wat onder konstruksie tans is, met motors moet kom. Ons ry verby...

Western Cape Chapter: Weekend run to Namaqua Lodge, 9 to 11 October 2020

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht   Dit is ons eerste oornag sedert Maart, en ons kan nie wag om die lang pad te vat op die Wing nie.  Die weervoorspelling sê dit gaan Vrydag reën in Gordonsbaai, maar ons ou mense skrik mos nie vir water nie, ons het immers al voorheen vir 7 ure in gietende reën gery van Worcester tot Jeffreysbaai. Gerdus en James en hul metgeselle en Johan Hattingh en Boet en Renthia het 'n lang naweek gemaak en Donderdag aand in die Piekenierskloof Country Lodge en op Clanwilliam al gaan oorgeslaap, of dalk was hulle bang vir...

Western Cape Chapter: Run to Saldanha Bay, 21 and 22 March 2020

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht Ons was in Oktober 2019 laas op ons Wing. Moes wag vir 'n nuwe waterpomp en het ook gesukkel met 'n hoeklig wat aanhou doodgaan het, so ons het baie uitgesien na die naweek by die Marriott Hotel in Saldanha.  Ons het besluit om nie saam met die groep vir ontbyt na Bellville te gaan nie, maar hulle op pad na Langebaan te kry. Was lui om vroeër op te staan!  By die Weskus Petrostasie kry ons vir Pieter en Marietjie, ook hulle seun Wynand; hy het heen en weer gery om video's van die groep...

Western Cape Chapter: Run to Kleinmond on 19 January 2020

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht The gale-force southeaster has been torturing us for a week, so chances of going on the run with our Wing was becoming slimmer every day!  Rain was also predicted, so André decided the car was the best option.  We turned up at the meeting place, but after waiting for the rest for more than half an hour, we realised that something was wrong.  The group apparently forgot that we were also going and left a bit earlier!  After contacting Igsaan, we heard that they were already at Betty's Bay and we decided to meet them at...
