‍♀‍♂ EXCITING Changes & Highlights For the Mountain Bike Route! ‍♀‍♂

* NEW single track routes: Both the 50km MTB and 30km MTB routes will feature some brand new single track through Boesmansrivier MTB farm, followed by sections of the Klipspringer Trail in the Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy

* LESS climbing - MORE fun: The 50km route is somewhat easier than in previous years in terms of less overall elevation gain. However, exciting single track will keep the ride interesting, along with some technical sections to ensure a decent challenge.

* SPECTACULAR views: All of the MTB routes offer impressive views and an awesome experience in the Conservancy. However, the 50km is particularly special; On the longer routes, you will be able to catch views of both the sea and the valley, as well as enjoy riding through fynbos, forests and wide open spaces.

* ALL levels welcome: The 50km requires that the rider is comfortable on a MTB, as there are some technical sections. The 30km is a great route for the average-intermediate rider, but it is still through Fynbos valleys and on MTB routes. The 15km is appropriate for beginners and is an easy route around the dam.

‍♀‍♂ AWESOME Trail Running Routes also! ‍♀‍♂
