Overberg MTB Events have created a bespoke mountain bike event that will take place in Tulbagh on August 14 and 15, 2021.
The Tulbagh Olive & Wine MTB Tour is a boutique event, kept small to adhere to lockdown regulations, that will be hosted by Raptor Rise Farm.
Distances consist of 50km and 40km 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.
This is a great weekend to escape to a quaint little town, which is located just 80 minutes from Cape Town.
Tulbagh features one of the most breath-takingly 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.
“Add to this, included in the entry, two breakfasts and two lunches that will be provided by some of the top caterers in Tulbagh,” said Jacobs.
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.
