ROUTES:
 
40km
The 40km is a challenge riders will relish if they have a bit of fitness under the belt. It presents one of the most scenic journeys you’ll can experience from the back of the saddle!
With 870m of vertical ascent, the undulating route will take you over some of the most amazing trails on the South Coast.
The ride kicks off through perfectly manicured gardens and the golf course of the Wild Coast Sun before exiting into rural coastlands.
Then comes the highlight of the route – the ride along the Mzamba River, high on top of gorges and cliffs on which riders make their way down to the Mzamba Estuary and beach.
The spectacular panoramic views over the ocean and coastal forests below will blow your mind.
To top it off we bring riders onto the beach with the ocean on the right keeping you company to the finish.
Lots of hand built single track, district roads, golf cart tracks all complete this riding experience.
Although the elevation is only 870m on the 40km, don’t be fooled. There are some tough hills but the downhill rewards make it worth the effort.
20km
The 20km race offers a delightful mildly technical trail. The route includes 435m of vertical ascent, but it’s ride-able throughout.
The route consists of a variety of terrain with great descents, some challenging climbs and fast winding single track.
The essence of the ride is very much like the 40km with scenic views, hand crafted track and beach riding – the whole 9 yards just half the distance.
The event is about great routes and a fun filled outing for the family.
The Team from ASG, Bestmed and Sun International will give all mountain-bikers and supporters something to remember this year.
There are a number of great waterpoints and spectator viewing points along the route.
