ROUTE DESCRIPTION

Unique, open space, mountains, blue skies, fresh air – this is what you will experience by doing the Meiringspoort Mountain Bike Challenge. Presented for the second time in De Rust, this Challenge will take you through the Klein Karoo at it’s best. You will hear & see Verreaux’s Eagle, Fish Eagle and many more while riding on the one track gravel road between Klein Karoo plants.

This route is only open to riders, once a year, during the Meiringspoort Challenge. The 6 De Rust farmers, on who’s land the route is, is most than willing to accommodate the riders. Which a huge privilege. The Meiringspoort Challenge event management committee also upgrade the route to overcome previous difficulties experienced by the riders.

To accommodate everyone, there are 2 circle routes to choose from. The scenic 31km is the shorter route for the rider who wants to enjoy the scenery and nature at it’s best.

The 31km route is for the less experienced rider who wants to enjoy the open air and beautiful surroundings, such as lucern pastures and vineyards. There is one water point with a spectacular view over Stompdriftdam. Not to be missed! If you want to spend time in nature and to enjoy the beautiful Klein Karoo at its best, this route is definitely for you. The circle route starts and ends at the NG Church Grounds in De Rust.
