The Kluitjieskraal MTB route, in between Worcester and Ceres, is renowned for its spectacular scenery and challenging uphills – some of which climb to 400 m above sea level, followed by rocky, technical descents on narrow jeep tracks/single-track. It takes the rider into unknown forest and mountain territory. It is a water-rich route, which passes through the MTO forestry reserve and traverses the Waterval Mountains twice. Be prepared for water crossings – you could get your feet wet! The 64 km route is challenging and includes steep climbs and sharp ascents and single-track. The 44 km is “pretty” but tough, while the 22 km is a family-friendly ride, with a steep hill at the beginning and wonderful views over the valley. The untimed 5 km is a kiddies’ fun ride, ages 4 to 8 and 9 -13 years, through the farms adjacent to the school grounds. (more…)
