About the Event
Ry Hom Kwagga is a new mountain bike event set in the Agterveld region, Montagu, Touwsriver area.
About the area:
This is the Klein Karoo at it’s best, vast expanses, clean air, the sound and smells of the veld, stars so close you can almost touch it. Look further and expand your horizons, this allows you to breathe and dream again.
Over the last 20 years this area has gone from sheep farming to guest farms and the game has moved into our area by themselves: gemsbuck, eland, kudu, wildebeest and of course the Quagga/Kwagga has been here, also many of smaller game species.
This mountain bike event has two distances to choose from, the longer distance will include some technical terrain while the shorter distance is just great riding, jeep track that is in good condition.
The trails we chose for this runs through seven different farms ranging from cattle to sheep farms but with an outlook of hospitality and bringing nature back into balance. On one of the farms, Middelberg Guest Farm you might spot the Kwaggas and if you look closely you will see stripes disappearing from the back side like the original Quagga.
