  1. Have alluded in previous threads to a potential trip to tackle the infamous van Zyls pass in Northern Namibia. Things are now really starting to come together to make this happen, and all things staying equal, we will be offering an 8-10 day (including travel days) Nambia MTB expedition in the winter of 2021, the highlight of which will be a crossing of Van Zyls Pass. As well as some other epic riding along dry river beds in the Kaokaland, and the moon landscape outside of Swakopmund. Dates and pricing will be published in the next couple of weeks, once we have more of the details worked ou
  2. Organisers of the 2020 Windhoek Light Namib Quest have announced that renowned chef and restaurateur David Higgs will be participating in this years’ race. In addition, Higgs has been onboarded to curate the food experience for all riders through the race. Click here to view the article
  3. The Windhoek Light Namib Quest is an exclusive mountain bike stage race starting in Windhoek and ending in Swakopmund, taking place from 24-29 May 2020. The six stages of the race take participating riders on a once in a lifetime journey through the Namib desert. An accomplished rider, Higgs is looking forward to both the challenge of the race and bringing true Namibian flavour to the food experience for all in attendance. My food journey started in Namibia, fishing in Swakopmund, so it is incredible to be able to bring my passion for food and mountain biking together to deliver a great expe
  4. The Namib Quest race villages are the stuff of legend and continue to bring back riders from all over the world. Designed to give riders the ultimate comfort in amongst some of the most remote locations in Namibia (and ice cold Windhoek’s) – riders can rest assured knowing that all their creature comforts will be taken care of. With only 80 entries available (team or individual options), the Namib Quest is aimed at those looking for an exclusive mountain biking experience for riders seeking the adventure, discovery, teamwork freedom and reward that only this race can offer. Early bird entr
  5. The Windhoek Light Namib Quest is Namibia’s premier stage race, giving riders a true test of their ability in a six day, 517km journey from Windhoek to Swakopmund. Entrants can look forward to riding through the plains of the Namib Desert, experiencing trails not usually open to the public. Click here to view the article
  6. Our man on the ground was Alfons, once again having local knowledge is KEY to having a good time! Our first afternoon was mind blowing! We followed Alfons into the surrounding dunes of Swakopmund and rode some lines as the sun set behind us. The next morning we went off to see the highest dune in the world, Dune 7. After asking around we realised that nobody had ever walked up and ridden a bike down! Challenge accepted. The footage doesn't do the scale and steepness of the Dune justice, it really is insanely steep. We found ourselves on a moon like surface for the second part of our ad
  7. The Bike Life crew recently returned from a Namibian mountain bike adventure. In the latest episode they visit the immense sand dunes and lunar landscapes of Swakopmund. Click here to view the article
  8. We love the process of adventure, the unexpected challenges and rewards. Our Namibian trip was way more rewarding than it was challenging. We flew out of Durban to catch a connecting flight from Johannesburg to Windhoek. In Windhoek, we met up with Patrick de Goede who runs Cycletec in Windhoek and operates bike tours into the Namibian countryside. Click here to view the article
  9. Connecting with Patrick was the best decision we could make, local knowledge goes a long way in efficiency and avoiding unnecessary issues. Arriving at the Spitzkoppe, we were blown away by the scale of the rock structures! A bit nervous and unsure, we walked up the first section that looked ridable, and soon we had our confidence, spotting lines all over the place. Experiencing a new type of mountain biking, new terrain, and learning how our bikes best handled the granite surface was totally enjoyable. After the riding session, we grabbed a few beers and found a spot to watch the sun go down
  10. The Desert Dash is no more. THANK YOU Aidan and team for 10 good years and for changing cycling in NAM forever!
  11. Does anybody know the quality of Bioracer cycling clothes? Nedbank has chosen them to supply the Official kit for 2015. (Last year Anatomic was responsible.) "We have a discounted rate for the set - N$ 2900.00 or N$ 1150.00 for the shirt and N$1750.00 for the bib shorts which includes postage/delivery in Namibia and South Africa." Wondered if any other hubbers knows the make?
  12. The first four days of the race will take the riders through the Khomas Hochland plateau separating Windhoek from the Namib Desert. The terrain is hilly with a few short, hard climbs and technical descents. Half way through day four, a long, but very fast technical descent takes you into the Namib Desert. For those who are able to take in the scenery as they ride, this is the most scenic location of the race, and the race village is positioned in a spectacular setting. Day five covers a flat traverse of the ‘Tinkas’ plains in the Desert. In the past, this stage has been fast paced with several
  13. The 2015 Windhoek Light Namib Quest sees 75 two-man Mountain bike teams navigate their way through harsh, and sometimes sandy, Namibian terrain. Commencing on 24 May 2015, teams will leave the capital city of Windhoek and over the next six days, covering 450km as they make their way to the finish line in Swakopmund.

  14. I'll be in Namibia, Swakopmund to be exact, next week (20th --> 27th). Can anybody point me to some trails in the area? I know of the salt road between Swakop and Walvis (35km one way) which I will ride, but was just wondering who else rides there?
