Route Info
The Routes:
Meurant Botha of Dirtopia, who has been designing and maintaining mountain bike trails for over fifteen years, says that the five routes will pass through more than 40 wine farms, giving riders the opportunity to tackle some of the best and most beautiful trails in the country.South Africa’s top mountain bikers will be invited to enter the 75km, which route follows most of the 60km, but also includes the wonderful singletrack on Delvera farm. The 60 km route will traverse several local mountains and is not for the faint hearted. Riders can look forward to some serious climbing, technical descents and lots of single track. While the winner is expected to finish in approximately three hours, the average participant will take between four and five hours to complete the demanding course.To accommodate even more riders at one of South Africa’s largest MTB events, the organisers have added a  50km route to the south-eastern part of this town.  This  route will be an extension of the popular 30km route and although it is only 8km longer than the 42km, it is a much easier route! Riders should not be fooled by the distances.The 42 km is a tough challenge and not for beginners, which will mirror the 60km route up until Delheim Wine Estate from where they will head back towards the R301 and Stellenbosch.The 30 km route follows a relatively flat course towards Spier Wine Estate and is perfect for those who think the 15 km will be too short, but don’t feel like tackling the climbs of the 42km. This is usually one of the most popular routes of the event.The 15 km has proven itself as perfect for novices and follows a shortened version of the 30km route with identical start and finish sections.
