ROUTE DESCRIPTION

Unique, open space, mountains, blue skies, fresh air – this is what you will experience by doing the Meiringspoort MTB Challenge. Presented for the second time in De Rust, this Mountain Bike Event 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 13 De Rust farmers, on who’s land the route is, are more than willing to accommodate the riders. Which is a huge privilege.

The adventurous 60.5km is specifically for the rider who wants to go the extreme. Be part of the first time pack riders, who will participate in the unique Meiringspoort MTB Challenge.

The 60,5km route is definitely for the more adventurous and experienced rider. There is a lot of jeep track. Ensure that your bicycle is well equipped. The circle route starts at the NG Church Grounds in De Rust. You will pass through the farms and Klein Karoo countryside. The best part is the full circle around the well-known Stompdriftdam, at the foot of the astonishing Kammanasie Mountain. Thereafter you will pass through a Game Farm. Maybe Eland and Kudu are waiting for you under a huge tree. After an unforgettable adventure and two well equipped water points, you are back in De Rust for a good rest.

The best MTB challenge in the Klein Karoo! A mountain bike event not to be missed!
