The Trans Outeniqua MTB tour will start at Pine Creek River Resort in Great-Brak River and will take you over 3 mountain ranges, the Langeberg Mountains, over the Rooi Berge and over the Outeniqua Mountains. It is 3 days of exhilarating riding along and over the mountains. This is great long distance training for the Epic, but doable for the intermediate to fit Mountain biker. No technical riding. Stay at 4 star accommodation and get spoiled with a 20 minute massage Friday and Saturday so that your legs are ready for the next day.
Please note this is a Tour, not a race, you go your own pace. Great training for the for Epic or any other Endurance race. Take the Edge of racing and come and enjoy the Tour with us. Make new friends along the way.You can enter as a Solo, but you just need to share with somebody else unless you pay the single accommodation option
