Houwhoek MTB Tour
Sep 19 @ 8:00 am - Sep 20 @ 5:00 pm
The Houw Hoek MTB Tour is a non-competitive 2 day MTB stage event. The objective is to give MTB’s and newcomers to multi-stage events (NOT NEWCOMERS TO MTB) the opportunity to enjoy a weekend of scenic, fun and non-competitive riding. However, make sure that you are fit as each of the two stages are approximately 50 km, mostly on gravel roads (including jeep and single tracks) and that you can and love riding single tracks.
The Houw Houk Tour gives you the opportunity to cycle some of the W2W RACE routes. The Tour also aims to let you explore and experience what a multi-stage event is all about and offers a relaxed and supportive atmosphere as no timing is done.
Stage 1 starts at 08h00 on Saturday 19 September 2020 and finishes at the Houw Hoek Hotel. This stage includes the Thandi, Paul Cluver, Korteshoven and Houw Hoek single tracks. New single tracks have been added in Paul Cluver, eliminating Kili Hills 1 & 2.
Stage 2 starts same time on Sunday 20 September 2020 from the Houw Hoek Hotel. The route takes you down the historic Katpass, via Beumont and the Wildekrans Winery trails, along the Botriver. Onto the Karwyders tar road, over the Steel bridge and then on single tracks that link the four historic cottages on Bot river farm. At the De Bos dam wall you turn right down the Onrust river into the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, along Jan’s beautiful single tracks.
