Stanford MTB Classic
February 16 @ 8:00 am - February 17 @ 5:00 pm
On the weekend of the 16thand 17thof February 2019 mountain bikers are invited to gather for a tour with timing – the Stanford MTB Classic. The event boasts a relaxed country village atmosphere, spectacularly scenic riding through fynbos and farmlands, and for 2019 timekeepers too for those who cannot help but race. So be sure to join in the festivities at Stanford Valley.
It is an event for avid mountain bikers looking to reconnect with the by-gone spirit of the sport. For those who know how to have fun on and off their bikes. Mountain biking families can gather at Stanford Valley and the fitter members can ride the longer routes while the less serious can cruise through the short courses. Then post-stage they can enjoy a delicious lunch with like-minded people before drifting off to their bed and breakfasts, or relax under the oaks before curling up in a luxury tent ahead of the next stage.
