The second annual Garden Route 300 is an extreme MTB event held in Knysna from the 24 to 26 February 2012. With 3 stages spanning indigenous forest, rolling plantation and mountainous terrain this event is definitely not for the unfit or faint-of-heart.

So, are YOU ready for this?

Great event, really enjoyed it. Cruise Cafe was an excellent finish venue. Routes were varied and testing with lots of single track. Forgot my beach towel on Day 2 to enjoy the "beach" we rode through. Thanks to GGE for the useful gift we all got at the end.

I was a little skeptical about this race because of the cost and the fact that it did not include accommodation as well as returning to the race village every time you had a meal.

 

I was wrong.

 

This was an incredible race and worth every cent. The riding is some of the best in the country, and certainly not for sissies. My eyes have been opened to the trails of Knysna.

 

Congrats to all involved and well done to all the finishers!

Someone I spoke to at the start of Friday said he preferred the Knysna 300 to the Sani. And he is a "salt of the earth" back of the midfield rider,so he should have a fairly objective opinion.
