Cape Town Cycle Tour MTB Challenge


The 2017 Cape Town Cycle Tour MTB Challenge is taking place over the weekend of 4-5 March 2017 at Stellenbosch’s Le Bonheur Wine Estate.

The Cape Town Cycle Tour MTB Challenge annually kicks off the Cape Town Cycle Tour Lifecycle Week. Each year the event can be counted on to deliver loads of outdoor fun for families as well as the more serious technical off-road riders.

Each route boasts varying degrees of intensity, designed by Dirtopia’s trail-building. On Saturday, 4 March 2017, riders can have fun with the 14km, 20km and 30km trails.

These three distances are shorter than Sunday’s routes and perfect for families and those still honing their MTB skills. Be warned that these routes are still challenging, so be prepared to work up a sweat. Sunday, 5 March 2017, is aimed at more experienced riders who are looking to put their skills to the test.  Cyclists can choose between either the 40km or the 55km routes and both distances promise participants a technically challenging ride.

Participants who enter and complete both the 2017 Cape Town Cycle Tour and 2017 Cape Town Cycle Tour MTB Challenge (55km route) within the allotted time, qualify for a combo medal. Entries close on Monday, 20 February 2017 at 5pm.
