As the groundswell of anger over the e-tolling fiasco in Gauteng… er… swells, Bikers Against e-Tolls in the Cape is determined to leave no ground unswollen in the fight against institutionalised electronic thievery.

Participants in Cape Town's fourth BAT Run will gather from 8am on Saturday 25 January on Keizergracht in central Cape Town, to leave at 9am sharp.

And anything on wheels is welcome, as long as it's roadworthy and the conductor has an appropriate driving licence. Here's your chance to be an activist - make your own slogans for your vehicles, and contact Amanda Bruwer if you'd like to sponsor a flag or three for the run.


Right into Keizergracht, right into Tennant Street, left into Roeland Street and up De Waal Drive, left on to the N2, left on to the R300, right on to the N1, right on to the R304, right into Bottelary Road and left into Bottelary Tennis Courts where the Potency Motorcycle Club will man "refreshment facilities", offering food stalls and liquid refreshments of various levels of potency.

Want more noise? From there the fun will move to the Suicidal Tendencies' Tin and Tenner 2014 party - don't forget to bring a tin of food and a R10 note (not a member of Il Divo!) for those less fortunate.
