Who is SoHR affiliated with?


What is meant by an affiliation?

To ride in either a MSA or WOMZA event, you will need to purchase a license from the association who are hosting the event – to purchase a license from them, you need to be a member of a riding club – SoHR.

Does SoHR enter for affiliate license on behalf of its members?

SOHR do not enter on behalf of our members – members need to acquire their license personally.

What are SoHR tours?

School of Hard Rocks organises weekend/long weekend riding trips for our members which include accommodation, meals, apparel, etc. We either host and arrange our own tours specifically for our members or we organise a tour around a large riding event hosted by one of our affiliates. Lowlands Tour is one of our annual trips hosted by SoHR and takes place in the 1st quarter of the year. We arrange tours around certain Mountain Madalas events, IMPI Hard Enduro, IMPI Original and the Roof of Africa, to name a few.

How does the accommodation work for away events?

We host our own tours and book accommodation for our SoHR members for some annual riding events, which aren’t hosted locally (JHB). The club sources accommodation close to the event and notifies our members accordingly. The price of the tour is advertised and all interested members can book/secure their space by paying the deposit. We always want to cater for as many riders as possible, so we prioritise SoHR rider member’s bookings first before partners our non-riders who may want to join.

How many members are currently in the club?

As of mid-March 2022, we have 240 members and continue to grow every week.
