The Stanford 100 Miler is a 1 day dirt road bicycle race in the heart of the Overstrand.
Did you know Stanford is the only Town in the Overstrand proclaimed a Heritage Site, in its entirety. Like the whole Town is a Heritage site.
Probably the best part of Stanford is its proximity to equally beautiful towns, Gansbaai, Pearly Beach, Hermanus, Franskraal, Elim, Baarskeedersbos and L’Agulhas, the Southernmost tip of Africa.
2022 will be the inaugural Stanford 100 Miler, brought to you by the people who bring you the handcrafted bicycle race in the Tankwa Karoo, The Tanqua Kuru Bicycle Race.
This race has been built from the ground up. Fresh. Real. Untemplacised with an unwavering commitment to create memories and adding value to the people who host us.
Join us for The Hunt.
Start & finish will be at lush The Stanford Hills Estate
169km - 2358 elevation
This course favours the rouleur who is sharp enough to leave a bit in the tank for a few of the clever twists and turns towards the business end of the course.
After a short neutral section out of Town, hunters will immediately head South on some pristine gravel. Clay hardpack is the name of the game while you zig zag along the Uilkraals River.
You’ll eventually head in a Northerly direction and this is where the fun really begins. Rural, tarmac like gravel roads with two ‘bumps’ ready to the pack of the laggards. Over-cook the wet clay downhill sections here and it's not only new bike day, but also new clavicle day. More slippery than a greased weasel.
Get your steed over the last bump and all that's left is to channel your inner puncheur to the line.
The hounds will meet you at the village pub to revel in your success.
