From the arid desertscapes of the Groot Karoo to the great mountains of the Klein Karoo and the aboriginal forests of the Garden Route, the Cape Pioneer has it all, a truly African mountain biking experience. The magic lies in the unique combination of exciting, diverse trails, passionate people and authentic human connection, brought to you by world class event organisers. The result is a race that has achieved near legendary status.
“Challenge. Community. Race. Experience. Pain. Party.” “Challenge. Community. Race. Experience. Pain. Party.
The Cape Pioneer Trek is all those rolled into one. The best thing is, it’s not only about race time. It’s also the build-up, the time of preparation when you ask yourself, can I make it? And the time after, the time of the memories, when you know, yes, I did it! Nothing can beat this kind of experience. That’s why for me, the Cape Pioneer Trek is one of the top mountain bike races in the world.”
