For local members, why not make your next vacation a VOG Challenge adventure and for international visitors to this country, why not embark on a VOG Challenge in South Africa – the rainbow nation has so much to offer that is unique. Non-members who wish to ride the VOG challenges may do so by enrolling for a VOG Contenders membership, and performing the feat within that year. Riding a Vee machine allows you a Gold or Red medal (Rider / Pillion) or a non-vee machine earns you a white medal, all on the same rules as full members enjoy.

Then for those who are not riding for discovery and appreciation of scenery, photo-taking or with intention to soak up the unpolluted air in far off rural countryside  . . . . . but thrill rather in pushing for prize and endurance, there are the VOG Long Rider challenges. You get to design your own route and challenging your own initiatives and fitness.

Long Rider challenges will only be open to experienced bikers who can prove their prudence in bikemanship, good judgement and fitness.
