The MTB trails at Van Loveren Family Vineyards offer amazing views of the Breede River and the Robertson valley. Starting and ending at Van Loveren, the four trails vary in technicality and offer riders of all fitness levels a good workout.
Timing will be done by Great-Time, using JAVA’s own number boards fitted with transponders. No other boards or chips required. ALL participants will be timed, and all will receive results.
An easy non-technical fun ride suitable for children, perfect for families to do together.

An ideal route for beginners with rewarding vineyard and valley views. Mostly jeep track with some single track, gentle hills, not very technical with only 250m elevation.
Suitable for: Beginners
The 45km route is a rewarding route for fit, experienced riders and includes challenging and technical climbs and descents on jeep tracks as well as single tracks. This route includes some of the 2014 ABSA CAPE EPIC sections and boasts an elevation of +- 850m. Spectacular valley & vineyard views!
Suitable for: Experienced
A grueling route for top riders only. Includes many parts of the 2014 ABSA Cape Epic route, virgin territory and custom-built single tracks. The 1600m elevation will challenge even the most seasoned rider, making this an excellent training race for the “Bridge Cape Pioneer Track”, “W2W” and “To Hell and Back”.
There will also be a 10km and a 15km trail run on offer.
