With the perfect mix of adrenalin, challenging terrain and sheer enjoyment, the Magoeba Trek is an unmissable race experience, exposing cyclists to some of the best mountain biking in the country.
Rise to the challenge!
The entry will include:
- A unique mountain bike experience through the greater Magoebaskloof area.
- 3 Stages and 3 night’s accommodation (Thursday to Saturday).
- Ablution facilities.
- Official Race Garment
The race format consists of 3 stages over 3 days, in a clover leaf layout starting and ending each day at Cheerio Gardens. Riders can choose from the 70km per day “Race” or the 40km per day “Trail”.
Along the way, you are guaranteed to enjoy an unrivalled combination of varying terrain, breath-taking views, deep cool forests, pristine grasslands, gurgling streams and lots of single track. Each day will bring its share of challenging climbs and awesome descents. Food and tented accommodation will be provided in the race village.
Make no mistake, this is not sheer manicured, hard-packed bliss. For three days, your muscles will burn, your breath will come in gasps and your skills will be put to the test. But you can also be certain that at the end of each day you will know you’ve achieved something special; ridden some of the best trails in the country through the majestic Wolkberg mountains and Magoebaskloof rainforests; and been part of a completely unique and outstanding experience.
You will be proud to say you’ve completed the Magoeba Trek, and we know you will be back!
With an average of 29,4 metres of ascent per km in three days, the Race is tough – but conquer it and you’ll never see a mountain the same way!
The 40km Trail offers a slightly gentler challenge; but a challenge it still is. With more than 900 metres of ascent each day, riders will still take in the immense beauty of the Magoebaskloof and be extremely proud of their achievement.
Magoebaskloof and its village, Haenertsburg, have become a popular tourist destination due to the stunning scenery, quaint village, outdoor recreation and proximity to Gauteng. The area is also becoming known as an adventure sport destination. Events like the Ebenezer Mile, the Wolkberg Stage Trail Run, the Iron Crown Trail Run, The Wik Triathlon and the single day Magoebaskloof Mountain Bike Classic are growing every year.
