Route Description

The first few kilometers include a climb up Mountain Drive from Grahamstown industrial area. There is a rocky single track down from the Toposcope which can be a bit hair raising for some. The decent down the valley on the Southwell road is steep but it is tarred. It is important to keep left and keep a slow pace in the blind corners. The rest of the route is on country road. It is mostly a lazy downhill but does include a couple of uphills. A short single track section takes the bikes off the country road and into the back of Rosehill Mall, Port Alfred. A total of 58 km.

The Start

The start is at Pennypinchers Warehouse off Rautenbach Road, Grahamstown.

The Finish

The race will finish at the Rosehill Mall in Port Alfred off the R72.
