PRIZES AND GIVE-AWAYS

All finishers within the specified times receive a medal. Goodie bags and race packs go to all cyclists.



FACILITES

There is an extensive expo, complete with live music, food and drink at the race village at Loerie Park.



No doubt the 80 kilometre route is going to test you; no doubt you are in for a special ride. Within the first five kilometres your heart will be pounding as you climb over 250 metres. It is harsh, enough said. Then comes the plunge to the 10-kilometre marker before a long and brutal climb. This ride is not for sissies. By the time you get to the 20-kilometre marker board you have climbed almost 500 metres.


PRIZES AND GIVE-AWAYS

All finishers within the specified times receive a medal. Goodie bags and race packs go to all cyclists.



FACILITES

There is an extensive expo, complete with live music, food and drink at the race village at Loerie Park.



The 50 kilometre route starts with an initial climb out of Knysna which may prove testing; it is short and sharp, leading onto a route that is pleasantly undulating. The drop at around the 40-kilometre marker is deceptive, sometimes tricky. This leads to an easy downhill stretch to the finish.


PRIZES AND GIVE-AWAYS

All finishers within the specified times receive a medal. Goodie bags and race packs go to all cyclists.
