EIGHT HOURS OF WINTER MOUNTAIN BIKING NEAR STELLENBOSCH
The ever popular Nine-to-Five Mountain Bike Team Relay
event will take place for the eight year
on Delvera Farm and will this year be held on a public holiday - Monday, 16 June
Solo riders, teams of two and teams of 4 riders will try to complete as many 7km laps as possible in the eight hour period.
Normal entry costs starts from R165 per rider to R250 per rider, depending on the category with discount to Amarider members.
This year you can also do the event for a charity, MES by buying a R500 per person ticket for a team of four or two riders.
MES changes the heart of the city by providing opportunities to homeless and destitute communities in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town. By entering a MES team you will directly support the Grow job rehabilitation project that currently provides 300 shifts for job rehabilitation per month. Teams work within the Bellville, Parow and Brackenfell areas and work includes the cleaning of graffitti, stormwater drains, road maintenance, cleaning of parks and at local public events. Beneficiaries to this project have access to developmental programmes and opportunities to excel towards permanent employment. Activate your heart today, enter a team, and allow your passion for cycling to “Change the heart of the city!”
It is not necessary for team members to ride in sequence and one team member can do as many consecutive laps as they like. There should however not be more than a four lap difference between the rider with the most laps and the rider with the least number of laps at the end of the event.
The route is easy enough for riders across all levels and fast laps will ensure lots of activity in the transition area.
This is a very social event with friends and family supporting the riders and enjoying the facilities at this beautiful winelands venue.
Only pre-entries are taken so get your teams together – categories include: Open, Mixed and Junior. A percentage of the entry fee will go towards the Klapmutskop Conservancy.
Spectators are welcome to relax on the lawn or enjoy a wine or olive tasting or a leisurely hike on one of Delvera’s superb hiking trails. There is a lot of entertainment on the farm for kids like go-karts & a trampoline to name a few.
Entries will open in May. Timing will be done by Amarider Trail Tag that gives live results.
