MTB event: four distances in a day

The ninth edition of the Staalwater MTB Challenge will take place at The Caledon Casino, Hotel & Spa on Sunday 19 August.

Presented by BikeHub, the event returns to the one day-only option, with four mountain bike distances: 15 km, 40 km, 60 km and a new 75 km route option — the 60 km having more single-track and the 75 km more of a gravel grinder route.

A trail run will take place on the same day with an easy 15 km route.

The Caledon Casino, Hotel and Spa offers panoramic views of the Klein Swartberg Mountains, conveniently located only an hour’s drive from Cape Town. Both mountain bike and trail running events offer routes for amateurs to advanced mountain bikers/trail runners so bring the whole family for a fun filled Sunday.

The Overberg region, with its stunning scenery, diverse landscape and quiet dirt roads is fast becoming a favourite destination for outdoor enthusiasts.

The late August date coincides with vast fields of yellow canola blossoms and lush green wheat fields, making for a visual feast not to be missed.

Those looking for a getaway can spend the weekend at the Caledon Casino, Hotel & Spa, offering an array of activities after a day of running or cycling. Or, they can enjoy the restorative powers of the hot springs at the hotel spa.

Meurant Botha of Dirtopia, organisers of the Staalwater Mountain Bike Challenge and Trail Run, says: “The Staalwater Challenge, while giving professional riders a challenging race, is also a fun-filled opportunity for those who simply want to enjoy a refreshing ride in beautiful surroundings with their friends and families.

“You don’t have to be super fit or fast to be part of it.

“We have different routes to suit different fitness levels. Bring your family and friends and participate in this great outdoor adventure experience.”
