ROUTE DESCRIPTION

This event includes some new single track sponsored by PPA, which can be enjoyed again after the event!

 

  • 6 km: An easy, non-technical ride suitable for children, perfect for families to do together.

 

  • 20 km:  An ideal route for beginners with rewarding vineyard and valley views.  Mostly jeep track with some single track, gentle hills, not very technical with only 250 m elevation.
  • 45 km: A rewarding route for fit, experienced riders; includes challenging and technical climbs and descents and sections of the ABSA Cape Epic. Elevation of +- 550 m. Spectacular views! 
  • 80 km:  A grueling route for experienced, top riders only.  Includes sections of the ABSA Cape Epic and and new custom-built single tracks.  Challenging 1800 m elevation.
  • 10 km Trail Run: A most scenic, but tough route crossing the Breede River, along vineyards and across the Elandsberg Mountain with 350 m elevation and some rocky terrain. Note this is a self timed event. 

 

DIRECTIONS TO VENUE  

From Cape Town, take the N1 towards Worcester and continue on the R60 towards Robertson.  Continue straight through Robertson until you reach the traffic circle on the R317.  Turn right at the traffic circle towards Bonnievale. Van Loveren will be approximately 15 km along on your right.
