Piket-Bo-Berg Open Weekend
Sat 31 Oct - Sun 1 Nov 2020 @ Piketberg, Western Cape


Organiser
Piket-Bo-Berg Residents Association

Come enjoy some spectacular trail riding and do some good at the same time.


Join us for a once-off open weekend experience on 31 October & 1 November at Piket-Bo-Berg Trails.


As the Piket-Bo-Berg Cycle Challenge and Trail Run have been cancelled for 2020 due to COVID we have decided to host an open weekend to raise funds for the Piket-Bo-Berg Residents Association - the beneficiaries of the Piket-Bo-Berg Cycle Challenge and Trail Run. 


Our community will be opening the private trail network of Piket-Bo-Berg for this one weekend, to a limited number of riders and ticking all the COVID protocol boxes. Lekker! 


Keen? Of course you are… The eBikers even, yeah, we love you too and you’re more than welcome.


HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • It’s not a race, bru…Not even an event, it’s just a lekker ‘happening’ - a ride!
  • Passes are highly limited 
  • MTB only – for sake of control and safety, regrettably no trail runners will be allowed on the trails.
  • There are three distances (45km, 30km, 25km) available with different starting points on three separate farms, offering you the opportunity to tailor your mountain adventure. 
  • If the longer distance is sold out, simply buy a pass for the shorter route and do that first and then move on to the next farm and route. You can even do the same route twice should you wish to.
  • The price is the same for all three routes. (You can purchase a DAY PASS’ or a WEEKEND PASS‘ which allows you to ride Saturday and Sunday)
  • You will have to be self-sufficient on the trails, there will be no food stalls or waterpoints, but the local Farmers Market will be open from 09h00 until 14h00 (on Saturday only)  selling breakfasts, lunches and other local produce.
