Lormar Endurance #Farmtrail
Sep 27, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - Sep 29, 2019 @ 12:00 am
The Lormar MTB Tour is a unique three-day mountain bike experience in the heart of the Karoo. The Tour entails riding along 200 year old stone walls, on smooth “sheeptracks” and passing the familiar windpomp scenes along the way. Experience authentic Karoo hospitality with spitbraais, fresh farm bread, condensedmilk coffee, koeksisters & craft beer amidst picturesque sunsets. Lormar is not about crossing the finish line as quick as possible but rather about a riding experience like no other.

The Tour will start with a 20km ride into the sunset and welcomed to spectacular Karoo night skies. Day 2 is a tough one but definitely the most scenic route of the tour passing the old farm house G.A. Watermeyer grew up in to beautiful dam wall crossings over 58km in total. Day 3 will consist of approximately 55km through neighboring farms only available to ride during Lormar Tours.
There’s also a Lormar Mini category for riders wanting to do shorter distances each day. The Lormar Mini will also start with a 20km ride into the sunset for day 1. Day 2 will consist of an approximately 28km ride followed by day 3 a 30km ride.
You can expect to ride a combination of jeeptrack, a few singletracks and smooth “sheep trail” sections through the beautiful Karoo. We’ve also added the occasional bridge to make it an Ultimate Karoo Experience.
