Greyt Escape 3 Day MTB Stage has been given a boost for 2017 after being sanctioned by Cycling South Africa (CSA) and added to the race calendar, which means that professional cyclists can now join and earn UCI points. The race will take place from 16-18 June in the Overberg town of Greyton.

The quaint country village of Greyton situated at the foot of the majestic Riviersonderend Mountains, with it’s old-style, warm country hospitality, bring to the discerning mountain biker the terrain that challenges, rewards, and finally releases the rider to reminisce about a day out there that won’t be forgotten.

Riders can choose between the following distances: 55km, 63km or 45km. The routes and trails offer spectacular riding, and was also used to a great extent by this year’s Absa Cape Epic.

Riders can look forward to an adventure whilst riding each day’s route, discovering all the new places that the route has to offer, whilst enjoying what you are strongest at, whether it be climbing, open road, or single track.

The organisers have also added a event for friends, family, or parters who want to enjoy a 40km MTB ride on the farm roads of Greyton. The entry includes lunch at The Oaks Estate.

Other family activities include The Greyt (Trail) Run on the Saturday, fantastic hikes in the pristine Nature Reserve, mountain biking in and around the easy trails around the town, lots of eateries, coffee shops, art galleries, horse riding and many more.
