Krokodilpoort MTB Challenge

Whether you’re a Weekend Warrior or a full on Racing Snake you owe it to yourself and your mountain bike to get out to Parados Game Farm on the 2nd of August to sample some of the best mountain biking our beautiful Lowveld has to offer.  From a welcoming venue with farm stalls and family atmosphere the routes head out into real Lowveld Bushveld, abundant game is easily spotted from the saddle as you wind your way down well trodden farm paths before the steady climb up the ridge leaves you breaking out onto stunning views towards Eureka mine and Bulembu beyond.

But just as the climb rewards with the panoramic landscape so too are your senses rewarded with the fast, twisty downhill tracks, part single track, part jeep track and a total blast.  Over dam walls, up short kickers and once again more stunning vistas open up, this is real ‘out there’ mountain biking, not a manicured track or forest plantation in site, just you, your bike, a ribbon of dirt and mother nature.

Add to this festival of raw mountain biking is the chance to take advantage of cheap camping, the family fair and the chance to spend a whole weekend enjoying Bushveld hospitality, racing your bike on Saturday or joining the fun ride on Sunday to just chill and check out the game.  It’s a whole cycling holiday for the price of a race
