The Freedom Circuit is an extremely challenging self-supported bike packing race in South Africa in late April – early May annually.

There is a short and a long course route offering with fairly challenging cut-offs on the long route so night riding is required. The route is not marked. Riders are required to carry their own GPS devices for navigation and must follow the designated route. Very little is offered in the way of formal support on the course but detailed route information is provided in terms of distances between resupply points, lodging options, safe camping areas, water availability and technical route cautions. 

This is a self-supported event. Riders must carry everything they require including mandatory equipment. Riders may not receive any personal support/seconding whilst in competition. All riders will carry satellite trackers with 2-way communication for live tracking and emergencies but essentially competitors take responsibility for their own safety.
