ROUTE DESCRIPTION

10km route

25 / 50 km routes

This great event offers three routes in the popular Grabouw Forest. The 10 km route is aimed at beginners and youngsters (grandparents also welcome!), while experienced MTB riders can tackle the challenging 50 km endurance event. This route requires technical experience to handle the fine single track, many jeep track climbs and exhilarating descents. Don’t feel like doing all those climbs? Then the 25 km is just right for you! Be warned, the two longer routes both include some long, steady climbs, but the stunning view makes up for the sweat. The single track sections will still have you raving about them weeks later

 

DIRECTIONS TO VENUE

From Cape Town, take the N2 through Somerset West and drive over Sir Lowry’s Pass.  Turn left to Grabouw at the Orchard Farm Stall. Once in the town, turn left at the Taxi Rank and follow the signs to the Country Club.

NOTES

Grabouw Forest is one of the finest places to ride your mountain bike in the Cape. Our route master promises you awesome routes. If single track is your thing, be there! This area drains very quickly and the routes will be rideable even if it were to rain until shortly before the start of the event. All children U/12 must be accompanied by an adult and can only participate in the 10km event.

 

Remember to bring and wear your PPA MTB funride number. No helmet and/or handle bar end plugs, no ride. No transponder, no time. 

 New on the day: entertainment for the whole family including moms and little ones.
