Eroica South Africa & NOVA Eroica
March 16 @ 7:00 am - 7:00 pm
Eroica South Africa is a weekend of great cycling culture, delicious Italian food, and of course lots and lots of wine. For 2019 we are adding a vintage bicycle concourse, so prepare your most beautiful and rarest old bicycles for display and judging – it’s time to see what South Africans have hidden in their bike collections!
Montagu is the official home of Eroica South Africa, and our routes will stay the same for the foreseeable future. Our three beautiful vintage bike gravel routes have been named after the Keisie, Kogman and Kingna rivers that meet in the spectacular Montagu valley. There is of course also the Nova Eroica race route as well, that includes beautiful sections of the 140km and 90km routes.
The routes for the all the Eroica categories will be well marked, and each rider will receive a map of their respective route. The Eroica Classic riders are not permitted to ride with any kind of GPS-enabled devices on their bicycles, but they can study the routes in detail on the GPX files downloadable below. The NOVA Eroica race category riders are allowed GPS-enabled devices, and can download their GPX route file below as well.
Remember, spectators are very welcome!
