Karoo to Coast 100km MTB Challenge 2013

Karoo2Coast 2013 banner

I took part in the Karoo2Coast 2012 event, and loved it! Its an epic journey from the Karoo to Knysna Lagoon on the coast, taking in the mountains and the forest in-between. Whilst there is no real technical terrain to test your skills, the long climbs and sweeping descents will give you more than enough of a thrill.

Where: Uniondale
When: 08h00, 22 September 2013
Distance: 100km
Cost: R310.00

I have already entered this years event and have every intention of conquering the monster climb that had me beat last year!

We did not enjoy the minute tent that we rented at all for 2012 so will be trying the stables option this year. Accommodation in Uniondale is extremely limited and you need to make plans now as most of our enquiries (made in April) were met with laughter.

The event has been selected as an Official Premier Seeding Event of the 2014 Cape Argus Pick ‘n’ Pay Cycle Tour.

Entries opened 01 March 2013.

Please note the starting time is 30 minutes later than last year to accommodate expected delays due to roadworks. There is also a slight route change at Avontuur, see below:
