7km:

The 7km route consists of non-technical scenic farm roads and is aimed on children and novice riders. Very save and will entertain the younger members of your family. Enter on the day, all finishers will receive one of our unique glass medals and will be eligible for the lucky draw prizes!

47km:

The 47 km route starts on scenic farm roads through vineyards leading to rocky paths and jeep tracks. It passes over typical Karoo hills with some climbs and later descends into the upper sections of the Nuy Valley. Following more Jeep tracks through some amasing Karoo landscape, watch out for some wild life along the route! After a steady climb you descent into the famous “Olyfberg Farm”.  This will take you through olive orchards and the last stretch home is on secondary gravel roads, after which it joins the 7 km route to return to the venue. The vertical ascent on this route is about 700m, it will offer great base training for the Karoo to Coast. Proper mountain biking aimed at the rider that does not want the real technical stuff but are still looking for an adventurous ride. A little bit of everything you enjoy!

77km:

The 77km route is aimed at experienced, fit cyclists. The route shares the first 30km of the 47km route. Vertical ascent is about 1000m. Proper mountain biking over breath taking Karoo landscape. After the route splits from the 47km route you can expect a few more climbs over rocky paths and Jeep tracks with stunning views of the Nuy Valley and Langeberg mountains. The last section of the route is on secondary gravel road and again rejoins the 47km route at the bottom of the “Olyfberg Farm”. This route will have 4 waterpoints and one technical zone to assist with any mechanical problem you might develop along the route.
