Stage 1: #GondwanaGlory

Stage 1 will showcase the Mossel Bay area, new areas as well as those exquisite former utilized trails are included. Riders head North West towards freshly cut single tracks just commissioned and then head onto Gondwana Private Nature Reserve. This 11 000 hectare reserve offers a truly unique wilderness experience and riders will come face to face with the free roaming Big 5 game of the African continent.

 

Truly a spectacular area with views of the mighty Outeniqua Mountains and the ocean close by. The route’s approach to the urban areas has changed completely with more new tracks through adjacent beach areas and onto Milkwood School for a well-deserved night on the water’s edge.

 

Don’t underestimate this stage, still tough but very rewarding.
