Liberty Winelands Encounter


The scenic and unique Cape will play host to the Liberty Winelands Encounter – a spectacular three stage event that will showcase the beautiful terrain that links Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl and Wellington, over what is believed to be some of the best mountain-biking terrain in the country. The event takes place over the weekend of 21- 23 April 2017, presented by ASG Events and MTB Adventures, and 2017 will see the third edition of the event series.

The 180km three-day stage encounter will afford amateur higher net-worth mountain bikers with a passion for the sport and the experience of a lifetime. All riders enter as a two-rider team. Teams register in one of three different categories that include Men, Ladies, and Mixed, where riders in a team must remain together at all times during the race.

The Cape Winelands offers some of the best mountain-biking terrain in the world; surrounded by beautiful mountains and historical towns, vineyards, orchards, wineries, luxury accommodation and the finest culinary experiences money can buy.

It’s a MTB Encounter where riders are treated as VIP’s and where they will have access to wonderful hospitality. Spouses will also be able to book all meals with their riding counterparts, which creates a very unique and family orientated environment at meals and presentations.

The entry package includes an Ftech branded cycling jersey, event branded jacket and all 5 Star meals (including breakfast and lunch with dinner as an optional extra), but excludes accommodation. Sufficient accommodation is available at the various Hotels in the surrounding areas.
