Ride the Swartland during the Amarider 100Miler and 50Miler in Autumn
Is riding 100 miles off road on your bucket list? If so, the ninth edition of The Amarider 100Miler, presented by The Bike Hub is the perfect race to get it done. Held in Malmesbury on 20 May, this race is the ultimate Swartland meander offering dirt road riding around the Kasteelberg and surrounds.
This individual one-day mountain bike ultra-marathon of 160km is affordable and a very special event. This event will start early morning just as the sun is rising, with astounding scenery that is spellbound to keep the legs going for many hours. Only pre-entries will be accepted for both distances.
The 160km (100Miler) route is divided into three sections of approximately 55km with two compulsory timing checkpoints. The format of the race creates perfect vantage points for spectators and support. While the competition is based on solo riders completing the entire course these riders can form 4-man teams and enjoy a day out with mates on a saddle (of course)! With live Amarider Trail Tag timing and check points on the route, it is exciting to follow the racing online.
The shorter route option of the 50Miler (80km), starts at the halfway mark at Riebeeck Kasteel and ends with the 100Miler riders at the Malmesbury Showgrounds. This event also provides an opportunity for keen riders to taste endurance riding along with twist and turns against the clock. The full route has 2400m of climbing!
Finishing the Amarider 100 Miler within the 10hours 30minutes cut-off time is one of the most challenging endurance tests!
