Trans-Karoo MTB

Date: Saturday, 2 September 2017

The Trans-Karoo MTB is not an easy event. It’s not an event for unfit riders. It’s not an event for novices. It’s an event that will test your mental strength as much as your legs. It’s an event that will have you love and hate your bicycle – often at the same time. It’s an event that gives you serious cycling bragging rights if you become one of the handful of riders to have completed it. It’s about riding 247km in 17 hours. The event annually alternates between an “up” ride (Ceres to Sutherland) and a “down” ride. 2017 is a “down” ride, which includes the daunting drop down the escarpment via the 10km descent down Ouberg Pass, finishing many hours later on the Ceres side with the 14km rocky climb up the Skittery Pass. Entries cost R2,000. Various packages are available around accommodation and meals, or using the event bus to transport you and your bicycle from Cape Town to Sutherland, and back from Ceres to Cape Town.
