The popular Bestmed Sondela Mountain Bike Classic takes place on 24 and 25 June this year and this year sees the sixth running of the popular event.
Sondela and ASG have been hard at work to ensure mountain-bikers are on the receiving end of famous Sondela hospitality coupled by a wonderfully sculpted ever evolving route.
Distances on offer this year are 60km, 40km, 20km and two kids rides. The 20km, 40km and kid's rides take place on Saturday 24 June and the 60km ride takes place on its own on Sunday, 25 June, affording long distance entrants a user friendly experience without slower riders to contend with on the route.
The total ascent on the 60km ride is 266m while the 40km presents 186m of climbing. The 20km ride has a total gain of 100m. It all adds up to fast riding and routes that are suited to all abilities.
Sondela operations manager, "Ranger Mel" Meyer, has created an absolutely stunning mountain bike course at the well-known nature reserve, and he's made some delightful additions for the 2017 Classic.
Situated only 45 minutes north of Pretoria on the N1 Highway, Sondela Nature Reserve has been a popular bushveld getaway for many years - running on a high occupancy rate - and the mountain bike fraternity is privileged that the resort makes itself available for a mass participation mountain bike event, which is now a major winter stop-over on the local cycling calendar.
