Autumn Splendour MTB & Trail Run
May 25 @ 8:45 am - 12:30 pm
The Autumn Splendour MTB & Trail Run is a fun packed day for the whole family! 5km & 15km funrides through the vineyards. 50km ride for more experienced riders. Best Coffee, craft beer and wine!
55km Route is for the experience riders and will take you through grape farms into the beautiful veld of the little Karoo. Alongside the the old railway tracks and on fabulous single track and adrenaline pumping descents. Total elevation is about 1000m and mostly in the first half of the route. The way home is quick and will make the climbing worth every drop of sweat. Routes are well marked and field marshals are present along the full route. 4 Water points availible to make sure you don’t run on empty.
35km follows much of the same route as the longer version. Be prepared for technical sections and good single track. Awesome views and fast sections coming home. 3 Water point will make sure your are well hydrated.
15km of MTB fun is set out across four well know grape farms in the area next to the town of De Doorns. Mostly flat on gravel tractor roads. Very safe for novice riders. Good “feeding station” at the halfway mark. Something everyone will enjoy!
5km fun on the farm is for the Mountain bikers of tomorrow. This is flat and the 2.5km mark will provide snacks and drinks like you will not believe. Parents can join in for the odd push along the route.
