This will be the 8th year in a row we are hosting one of the best family fun and team building mountain bike events in South-Africa. The participants camp on the farm with their supporters and for 24 hours they ride either as individuals or in teams of 2, 4 or 8 riders. The individual or team that rides the most laps in their category will be the winner. It is an event where young and old ride together with great comradery. At night there are camp fires on route for atmosphere and safety.
