Hogsback : 13 – 16 May 2021









Quick Links

The 2021 Rallye Raid returns to Hogsback for the 4th year in a row but we have a
New HQ at the beautiful Arminel Lodge. We are also hard at work with new trails and we are invited back into the Amatola forests once again as we are staging the event outside of High Fire season. Hogsback and its immediate surrounds of Katberg, Cathcart, Stutterheim, Thomas River all with their own signature tracks make this Adventure Bike Heaven. 

Rallye Raid is based at Arminel Hotel and our Chill Zone next to the pool is the place to be after each day’s ride.

Entry into the Arminel Hotel is based on order of entry and the overflow will go into hotels like Hogsback Inn, Kings Hotel etc.. Breakfast is served at your respective hotel and lunch is provided en route. Supper is all together in the Chill Zone – great grub, live music, vibey bar tenders (with great specials) & lucky draws.

We have 2 route brand new route options.

RR1 is for the more experienced Adventure Biker, but totally suitable for the big twins with knobblies, where RR2 is the pillion-friendly option.  You can mix ‘n match as you like as we ensure that the tracks overlap for lunch and through small towns.  Check out the Routes here.
