The Karoo has always been a majestic part of our country. The massive vast plains and its massive open spaces can easily make you feel small but it creates the ideal opportunity grow big at heart and feed your inner soul. Sleeping right under clear skies and stunning views of the Milk Way as never before will only be a small part of this weekend experience. Discover the full diversity of the Karoo Heartland, majestic mountains and koppies, crystal clear air while riding at the foot of the Suurberg mountains.
With the race village right up in the Northern part of the Eastern Cape, 12 km west of Steynsburg, it creates the perfect opportunity ride different landscapes throughout the 3 days. On day one riders will cross private farmlands, district roads and enjoy views of the vast plains of the Karoo.
On day two all riders will have to conquer the Bulhoek Pass. At the top of the pass of 5,5km’s and 400m ascent you will see King and Queen of the Mountain. After again crossing some farms you will have a steep technical drop into a beautiful Kloof were you will have to watch out for the Kudus before heading back to the race village.
Day three will be district roads through some beautiful Karoo landscape and then riding into the service tunnel of the Orange Fish aqua duct and back out again. The route will then take riders to the tunnel outlet and crossing the channel before heading home with great memories.
