Overberg MTB Events have created a bespoke mountain-bike event that will take place in Tulbagh on 14 and 15 August.

The Tulbagh Olive & Wine MTB Tour is a boutique event, kept small to adhere to lockdown regulations, which will be hosted by Raptor Rise Farm.

Distances consist of 50 km and 40 km, respectively.

Rider groups will be assisted by the local MTB committee members, which will offer the chance to get to know the real local mountain bikers and learn about the soul of Tulbagh.

“Participants will have the amazing opportunity to ride some of this year’s Cape Epic routes in their own comfort zone,” said event director Anneke Jacobs.

Entries are now open for this intimate weekend of mountain-bike riding in Tulbagh, which is situated in the Winelands and famous for its notable wine route.

The town features one of the most breathtakingly beautiful valleys in South Africa, producing top-quality wines, olives and fruits. It also boasts a range of natural, cultural and historical attractions that make it well worth visiting.

“Enjoy a weekend of stunning mountain bike routes, great company, excellent accommodation options, good food and wine,” said Jacobs. “Add to this, and included in the entry, are two breakfasts and two lunches that will be provided by some of the top caterers in Tulbagh.”

There is exquisite accommodation available at Raptor Rise Farm, with 20% discount on direct bookings available to riders. Tulbagh Hotel is offering a 10% discount on direct bookings, and dinner available to riders.

Participants and their families are encouraged to support the local restaurants in town for dinner options.
