Piket-Bo-Berg Open Weekend
Sat 17 Apr - Sun 18 Apr 2021 @ Piketberg, Western Cape


Organiser
Piket-Bo-Berg Residents Association

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


Following the spectacular success of our open weekend in October 2020, we’ve been inundated with requests to do it again. So, LET’S ROLL! And run… 


We’re excited to announce that we’re doing it all again, with the addition of a trail run route this time round. 


As with last year’s open weekend, proceeds raised will go toward the Piket-Bo-Berg Residents Association - the usual beneficiaries of the PBB Cycle Challenge and Trail Run. The association is heavily reliant on the funds generated from the weekend to continue with its development initiatives.


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

  • Nobody’s going racing. It’s not even an event, it’s just a lekker ‘happening’ - a run and ride!
  • Trail Runner’s can tackle an 18km route on Mouton’s Valley Farm. For those wanting something shorter, there are “shortcuts’ off the route.
  • Passes are highly limited (300 per route).
  • 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. See the maps below for elevations. 
  • 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. If you know, you know!
  • 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).
  • There will be coffee, soft drinks and food available for sale at the start of Route A (Moutons Valley farm).
  • Each route will have a water point to refill water bottles.
