The Cape has a new offering on the winter mountain biking menu: The Greyt Escape 3-Day MTB Stage Race taking place from 16-18 June in the Overberg town of Greyton with the beautiful, quaint country village at the foot of the majestic Riviersonderend Mountains, with it’s old-style, warm country hospitality.  The mountains 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, known to most in the Cape’s mountain bike fraternity, 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, which has been crafted and designed to help you focus on one thing: enjoying yourself whilst discovering all the new places that the route will show you, whilst also enjoying what you are strongest at, whether it be climbing, open road, or single track.

Activities for the family include The Greyt (Trail) Run in the town on the Saturday, fantastic hikes up 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.
