A great and well prepared new route, with a good mixture of riding conditions set in the foot hills of the Langeberg mountains overlooking the ruens fields. The 55 km route has been laid out for the fit and experienced rider to keep you challenged on the climbs and great descents. The down-hills are a mix of fast rolling hills with a few technical descents that are clearly marked and well worth the effort of the climb, all in all a route with variation and flow to remind you why we love mountain biking so much. Ride amongst deep-set pine forests and beautiful fynbos with 60% jeep track, 20% gravel and 20% single track and 800 meters of vertical climbing. The 23 km is for the beginner and not-so-fit rider and riding through farm lands and into the beautiful Bontebok National Park where a variety of game can be seen while riding through fynbos on good gravel roads, looping back to the finish in time to watch the longer route riders come in.10 km is for the kiddies.
