This event takes place on farm roads and jeep tracks heading away from Diemersfontein, through the vineyards and farms of Wellington, crossing the Bainskloof Pass road and heading towards Groenberg Mountain. The well-balanced, fast route is jam-packed with beautiful views, fynbos, historic farmsteads, stream crossings and vineyard settings, passing many of the local award-winning cellars. Expect fast flowing single track, technically within reach of everyone (check the website for video clips of single track as they are built!).
The route is not suitable for beginners as there are parts that are fairly steep and technical. The 105km will finish with some tough riding in the Hawekwa Plantation on the slopes of Du Toitskloof.
We will also have a 5km kiddies ride in the venue so bring along your kids to the event, they will have a ball!
Bike wash facilities will be available at the finish area.
