I maintain, the best one day event I have done......and arguably the toughest as well. The amount of climbing is a lot, but a lot becomes hectic, when you squeeze it in over a relative "short" distance.

 

The views and single-track make up for all of the suffering uphill though, and you'll have proper arm-pump at the end.  

 

Great vibe, water points and venue ......makes for a memorable event.

Do you remember the price of an entry last year?

Did the race last year 

 

It was brilliant. The amount of climbing is brutal however the endless single track really makes it rewarding. One of the better 1day race for sure. 

 

I plan to do it again, I just hope we fortunate enough to have another mild temp day as this ride will be so much harder if temp sees anything over 25deg.

Is this the old Gravel Travel through Wellington, up and over Bainskloof and then that 20km descent back to the start?

 

Last time I raced that I won the SS division (it was a real thing) and took my whole family away to a private game lodge for a weekend.

 

It was awesome.

 

I could be swayed to come back and do that again... on a real bike though
