Aurora Om Die Berg

AURORA OM DIE BERG. This is an annual cycling event that is hosted alongside the AURORA SKOU. There are 3 cycling routes, starting with a fun 10km, an intermediate 20km and an exciting and adventurous 55km. The 55km route will take you through farm routes and around the Aurora mountain, back to town. This route is a challenge for many, but if you are able to enjoy the scenery along the way, you will enjoy the flowers in full bloom, on a single track over the mountain. This route is only open for this event, so make sure not to miss out. The start and finish is at Aurora Skou, where food, drinks, Sandveld hospitality and events will keep you and your family entertained.

20km TRAPSGEWYS

Trapsgewys is an easy 20km route that includes tar and gravel road.  This one is great for the novice rider, and is great if you want to join with a group of riders from different fitness levels.  This route differs quite a bit from the Om Die Berg route, and may differ from previous years.  Cyclists are advised to follow road markers.



10km PRETTRAP

A fun ride for beginners and juniors.  This is on a farm gravel road, and will mostly be the same route as the 10km fun run.  The 10km is a 5km route with a turnaround point.
