Route Description:
Difficulty Rating: 0. Route Type: Out-and-back
A new route was introduced in 2014. From Knysna riding westward along the Lagoon Road the route climbs Katerneck and goes into the Gouna Valley. From here you ride into Sedgefield and the turn around. The first real climb comes about 30 kilometres into the race as you travel north past plantation and forest to turn around just before the historic town of Karatara. The second challenge is Barrington Hill with the turn around at about the 72-kilometre mark. Once over this with the finish in mind the route takes you back to Knysna along the N2. The route does have some dangerous sections and the organisers will impose strong safety control measures at these points.
