The Greyton Pie Run MTB Gravel Grinder

The Pie Run Gravel Grinder is a charity event with all proceeds being split between the GGMTB Kids Riding Club and the GGMTB Club. All funds received by the GGMTB Club go directly back into trail building and trail maintenance.

Greyton Mountain Bikers are pleased to present the second running of the 76 and 30 km gravel grinder event in September 2019.

After the success of last year’s event and very positive feedback received from entrants, we are putting on the same event and attempting to set the standard even higher than before. The event caters for both pure gravel grinders and mountain bikers to cycle stunningly scenic gravel roads through the Overberg countryside in the late spring season. Wheat and barley fields, yellow flowering canola and blue cranes against the backdrop of the magnificent Riviersonderend mountain range will delight all participants. This is a supported race with three fully stocked refreshment points for the longer distance and one for the shorter ride. The voluntary stop in Riviersonderend for a “pie and coffee” at the Ou Meul is a must and will energize you for the return leg of the race.

For those persons returning to do the event for a second time, please note a change in start/finish venue which will now be at the newly opened Hub & Spoke MTB Café in DS Botha Street.

Greyton Village market has grown in stature since last year and will provide a great interlude for family and friends not taking part in the event, along with all the other attractions and entertainment offerings in the village.

Look out for accommodation specials in Greyton Village for Pie Run participants if you are planning to spend the weekend in Greyton.

Proceeds from the race are used for the local kids cycling development program which has been running for six years and provides cycling equipment, cycling outings and MTB training for youngsters from our local community.

Late entries will be accepted on race morning with a late entry fee of R50.

Race briefing will take place 15 minutes before the start of each batch.
