Trans Outeniqua MTB Tour

The Garden Route is known as one of the most beautiful areas in South Africa and plays host to various trail-running and cycling events. From 23 to 27 May 2018, MTB and cyclocross riders will have the opportunity to cycle for five days across three different mountain ranges, using only gravel roads and quiet tar road sections. The event takes place in the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve which is one of the biggest biospheres in the world and the Trans Outeniqua MTB Tour is a great way to experience it. By taking part in this event you are also supporting the reserve’s work in bringing us closer to a sustainable world.

Traversing the Langeberge, Rooiberge and Outeniqua mountains, the Trans Outeniqua 5 Day MTB Tour will start in the rural hamlet of Great Brak River with the first day finishing in Herbertsdale. Day two will take riders on a 71 km ride from Herbertsdale to the Rooiberg Lodge outside Van Wyksdorp. On day three, riders will depart from Van Wyksdorp for the ostrich capital of the world – Oudsthoorn. The next day will be a 64 km ride from Oudsthoorn to Herold Wine Farm with the fifth and final day ending back at Pine Creek in Great Brak River - completing the circular route.

This 5-day event will cover a total distance of 338 km and is great long-distance training but still doable for the intermediate to fit mountain biker as no technical riding is required.

TriSport has done all the hard work for you and included in the entry fee are three meals per day, TriSport support vehicles to transport gear, 4 nights’ accommodation, medical back-up, and a bike wash every day. And don’t forget the great food and hospitality at the various venues that this area is famous for!

Cash prizes will be awarded to the overall male and female winners but participants are welcome to just go at their own pace and enjoy the beautiful landscape with their riding friends.
