What is so special about Comotion in the Klein Karoo?

This two day event is aimed at having fun & getting away from the everyday stuff

Short enough stages so you can still have fun

Race village like in those epic events

Affordable enough not to break the bank

A two day fun stage “race”, with the emphasis on fun.

Race? Isn’t it always a race? 

Yes there will be timing but prizes will be awarded to “other” categories. The spirit of this event is about having fun, on the bike with your friends, relaxing after a hard year.

The official event starts Sunday morning but the fun starts already on Saturday with a night hike, bring your headlamp as we are going to fill the veld with little lights. Everyone is welcome not just entrants to the race. 5km Walk should be do able even for the kiddies and surely this will be a lot of fun. R50 entry will be for sale at Leeuwenboschfontein, it will include a hot chocolate with marshmallows

Stage Two: the Queen stage takes you into Driekuilen Game Farm. There will be climbing but it will be worth your legs. At the top of Waboomsberg, at the Lookout point you will be spoiled with views all the way into Montagu but here will also be the Photobomb moment of the weekend. Pose with your steed at this magnificent view (all images free for download) and enjoy the very special water point set up here. This stage has Gemsbok, Eland, Zebra, Swart Wildebeest and many more game to see, the trails are a joy to ride and the views out of this world. This won’t be an easy 58km but something that you will remember. 1122m ascent.
