Entries for the 2017 Ride2Nowhere presented by WeChat are now open! This 3 Day mountain bike stage race takes place annually during the month of September in the beautiful and charming town of McGregor in the Western Cape. This year the event will take place on the weekend of 8 – 10 Sept.
The event is well known for its unique and festive atmosphere and the amazing mountain bike routes! The route master aka ‘Generaal Con Viljoen’, carefully selects and marks the trails so riders can experience only the best of the McGregor mountain biking landscape. Riders can expect some fun and flowing single track, very little jeep track and one or two challenging climbs. All-in-all proper mountain biking at its best!
80% of the route is on private land which is not open to public and this ensures the event remains unique and there is always something new to offer. September is also flower season so riders can expect a colourful backdrop all three days.Riders can choose between a long route, 60km per day or short route option which is 40km per day. The event also offers Solo and Team entries in both distances and a new addition for the 2017 event is the introduction of the TREAD Buffalo Bull, Lite and Betty categories!
The event distance and timing is at the perfect time of year to encourage you to keep active during the winter season, tackle your first stage race, or use it to kick off your racing season.
“The perfect race where racing snakes and weekend warriors meet to compete for fun!”.
It’s an inclusive event where the whole town joins in to welcome the mountain bikers and their families in the village and everyone enjoys the weekend together.
There are lots of supporter activities to do over the weekend including a Trail Run on the Saturday and there are also spectator points on route.
