With the same start and finish location every day riders have the chance to enjoy a morning of action-packed riding and then relax with family and friends in the afternoon. The route offers challenge and reward for all levels of cyclists. 

Experience proper mountain biking trails covering various terrain with beautiful views of the valley and surroundings of McGregor.

It is a unique opportunity to explore this remote region of the cape on a mountain bike by getting access to routes and trails you wouldn’t on any other day. The riding is typically ‘Karoo’ – more rugged and technical than many of the other more groomed trails that see countless wheels per year. 

The Long Route - A good challenge to the racing snakes, but still doable for the weekend warriors (who likes and have experience in un-groomed single track). It offers big views & rewards all around. The first few kilometres each day are on open roads to get everyone settled in, but then we take it up a notch. Following mostly single and jeep track, the trail will keep you on your toes.

The Short Route - If you are a keen mountain biker at heart, but not as fit as you would like to be, or not up for 70km per day, this is for you. Still proper, still a good challenge, but just not that far. Generally, the short route follows the same direction as the long route, with some shortcuts and a bit more gravel road

The event is known for its festive and relaxed atmosphere
and we welcome your family and friends to be a part of the event weekend.
