Route Description
Short Route:14km
Starting amongst olive groves and easy farm roads for the first 6km, you will be well warmed up by the time you hit the first climb on this varied, spectacular course. From the top of this climb, the Short Route will wind its way back down a fast but wide downhill, then a short flat section pass a dam before the last small hill thrown in for good measure before the finish.
Long & Medium Route: 42km & 25km
The Long & Medium Routes continue on forest roads with spectacular views and down hills with good doses of single track. The Medium Route returns to the finish, whereas the Long Route continues along the Klein Drakenstein mountain slopes before heading home on this challenging, but captivating course.
Kiddies Route: 5km
There is also an easy 5km loop amongst the olive groves. Spectators are welcome to picnic under the trees and watch the fun. There will be food & drinks for sale and jumping castles for the children.
