Kaleo MTB Klassik – away from the hustle and bustle of humanity

Kaleo MTB Klassik

28 October 2017 will see the annual Kaleo MTB Klassik, a CSA sanctioned event in the picturesque Koue Bokkeveld, high above the Ceres Valley taking place at the Kaleo Guest Farm, approximately 2 hours drive from Cape Town. This elegant country estate with both accommodation and function facilities is set well away from the hustle and bustle of humanity – an ideal place to get away from it all to enjoy the slow pace of country living.

The Kaleo MTB Klassik will be filled with challenging off road cycle for those wishing to challenge themselves and also offer a fun filled family friendly market day. Kaleo MTB Klassik will provide entertainment for the kids including jump castle, soft play, photo boards, pony rides, and horse rides.

The route forms part of the  internationally acclaimed Tankwa Trek race with a choice of 22 km, 40km and 60km distances on offer.

The 22km featuring mostly single track with 1 technical climb and descent – crossing 2 A frames on the way with a elevation of about 328m, with no waterpoint stop.

The 40km route is a fair test for the average rider – following the same route as the 22 km before splitting of at the 15km mark. There is a climb and descent before the waterpoint at the 26km mark – up “ B se bult “ into 8 km of single track to the finish-line. (Elevation 917m)

The 60km route is for experience riders – following the same route as the 40km splitting off at the 30km mark, where riders go into areas where humans seldom wander with its beautiful rock formations. After the 2nd waterpoint at 40km descending  to “Heartbreak Hill “ – a new single-track section with fantastic views, before reaching  the “Brown Monster“ at 47km with an amazing rock garden descent up “Lock se trek“ and into 12 km single track to the finish. (Elevation 1407m)

For the runner enthusiasts, there will be a 5km, 10 and 15km challenging trail run as well as a action packed 4 x 4 event.
