The PPA Tread Lightly Women’s Mountain Bike Challenge will take place on 18 May this year at Backsberg Wine Estate. After the success of last year’s event, this popular ride will offer a route geared for every fitness level ranging from a 5km course, to a 15km route for the more experienced rider and a 35km race for serious, competitive mountain ladies.
Female cyclists can enjoy the scenic farm roads through vineyards, orchards and forest areas, whilst testing their endurance on some steep climbs, fast descents and non-technical, single-track sections. The route is marshalled while the water point may offer a surprise or two.
Enjoy live music, food and wine at the finish and win fantastic prizes in the lucky draw. There will also be a prize for the best cycling outfit. Male riders are welcome to participate on the 5km course if accompanied by a child under 12.
