Gravel & Grape MTB Challenge

06 May 2016 - 08 May 2016
The 2nd annual Gravel & Grape 3-day MTB Challenge is taking place from 06 - 08 May 2016. 3 days - 3 stages - 207km

How much fun can you have on a wine route? Well besides the expected offering of quality wines and hearty country food, we also throw in majestic mountains which combine with vineyards and sparkling rivers to create a natural playground offering healthy outdoor fun for mountain bikers.

Not to mention our hot springs, stunning Fynbos and warm hospitable people who are passionate about winemaking and the valley in which we live. The Breedekloof Wine Valley is just 1 hour from Cape Town, along the N1, and includes Rawsonville, Slanghoek, Goudini & Breerivier.

So what makes the Gravel & Grape 3-day Mountain Bike Challenge different to other stage races? The fact that the race village is based at a hot water resort, the ATKV Goudini Spa, making this a family weekend instead of just another rider event.

We offer kilometers of sometimes challenging and sometimes sheer sublime routes through the magnificent and varied scenery of the Breedekloof Wine Valley. Although the race is aimed at all riders, each day's route has a good variety of single track and climbs to make this race a challenge for the experienced riders as well.

The race itself takes place in a clover leaf format, with each day starting and ending at ATKV Goudini Spa. To make this a true family experience, Goudini Spa will offer a family programme of events and activities to keep everyone entertained during the weekend.
