QBike Bielie Mielie 3-Day or 1-Day MTB Stage Race Classic
March 15 @ 8:00 am - March 17 @ 5:00 pm
Get familiar with the best of joBerg2C’s Day 2 & 3 route! Now also a National Trail Seeding event timed by BoutTime.co.za in preparation of the joBerg2C. The race will serve as a great training ride to test your fitness prior of the joBerg2C as well as your Garmin GPS navigation skills (or other device), We will be at the race to assist you with any GPS queries you might have.
If you are not entered for the joBerg2C, come and join us for one of South Africa’s greatest MTB Classics, enjoy the beautiful scenery after the long awaited rain, the famous Free State Koeksisters and the friendly farmers opening their farms for the race.
There will be 4 fabulous water points on route manned by friendly faces and stocked with Coke, Koeksisters, Energade, Banana’s, Bar-One’s & baby Potatoes. There will also be chain lube available and lens cleaning stations etc.
The best burgers in the Free State will be sold at the finish line along with ice cold craft beers, ciders, wine & cool drinks.
The route takes a clover leaf format from Reitz and includes parts of day two and day three of the Old Mutual joBerg2c. “Expect mielies and mielies of singletrack, real tractors, proper Afrikaans farmers and grazing gazing cattle,” says Wappo. Of course you don’t have to tackle all 101-kays and there is a shorter 60kay option – vibes and views still guaranteed.
Well that’s just about enough motivation for us.
Paid up entries before 28 February 2019 will receive a free T-Shirt as well.
