ROUTE DESCRIPTIONS

Mountain Bike Routes
Running/Walk Routes
60 km Route Profile (Same Route as in 2014)

The route features some breathtaking scenery and visits to different areas of this beautiful valley. We have opted for an easier ride, without the technical and challenging sections of previous years. The route starts out on farm roads towards the majestic Swartberg mountains, traversing it's foothills in an easterly direction with a loop back towards Lategansvlei.

From here we enter some of the most scenic jeep track around, and an easy ride takes riders towards Buffelskloof and a loop around the famous Red Stone Hills ends a magic day in the saddle.The focus is now on the scenery and the enjoyment of the best The Klein Karoo can offer!

The race will be non-technical for all to enjoy!

46 km Route Profile

This is a non-technical easy ride on open gravel roads!!! A there and back route with the turnaround at the halfway mark. Very scenic route through the beautiful Groenfontein.
