Ahead of their 2016 events, the Grindrod Bank Berg & Bush will be hosting three fun and informative Beer Nights around South Africa.


The popular mountain bike event invites all entrants, MTB enthusiasts and those hoping to experience the unique and thrilling trails of KwaZulu-Natal to join them for an evening of race information, beers and bike banter.

The Beer Nights will be hosted in Durban (21 June at Grindrod Bank), Cape Town (22 June at Revolution Cycles) and Johannesburg (23 June at Grindrod Bank), from 6-8pm.

Grindrod Berg & Bush race director Gary Green will be at all three evenings to answer any questions you might have about the event, and to provide updates on the ever-improving route.

Green will talk through the extensive changes made to the Berg & Bush route for Day 1, including new overtaking sections and faster, more flowing singletrack.

The Day 2 route has also been tweaked, with a new section that now takes riders along the Tugela River. For Day 3, riders can look forward to a new downhill section that is currently under construction. Day 2 of the 2 Day has been completely revamped, highlight the Berg & Bush’s determination to provide a truly world class MTB experience.

There will also be surprise guest speakers at each Beer Night, discussing a range of MTB topics from technical skills to training programmes.

All Beer Night guests at each of the three evenings will also stand the chance of winning a special entry to the Berg & Bush event of their choice.

The lucky winners will receive a team entry, superior accommodation at the event, team Adventure Physio sessions, and a helicopter flip over the spectacular route.
