Cape Agulhas Classic - Africa's Southern most mountain bike race


After a scenic two hour drive from Cape Town over rolling hills, you will find the Southern-most region of Africa, part of the magical Overberg, where the majestic Atlantic and Indian oceans meet. This area stretches from Die Dam in the west, to the De Hoop Nature Reserve in the east.
On December 12th, you can enjoy this region on your mountain bike during the CAPE AGULHAS MTB CLASSIC and there are four distances on offer during the 2015 event.
The main race is 72km, testing the skill and stamina of the rider. Then there is the scenic 46km route and the slightly downscaled 35km ride, as well as a 10km event to enjoy at your leisure.
Visit the unique towns and villages - Napier, Elim, Bredasdorp, Arniston/Waenhuiskrans, Struisbaai, L'Agulhas and Suiderstrand as well as the De Mond Nature Reserve and the rugged plains of the Agulhas National Park. Feast your eyes on the beautiful fynbos, unique to this area. A visit you will always remember.
The area also offers kilometers of sandy white beaches, lush vineyards and farm lands, the quaint harbour at Struisbaai and the oldest working lighthouse in South Africa overlooking the place where two oceans meet at L'Agulhas.
Not only is this area steeped in rich cultural history, but offers unique fauna and flora and an abundance of birdlife. This is also home to the Blue Crane. Whether you want to explore or just relax and take in the scenery, this beautiful area has something for each and everyone. Escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy safe swimming, fishing, hiking, surfing, taking strolls on the beach or cycle to your heart's content.
