The 2019 date is set for South Africa’s favourite single day mountain bike event: 22 September. Heading into the 21st edition the BUCO Karoo to Coast promises to be as challenging, rewarding and fun as ever – when 4 500 riders take on the route from Uniondale to Knysna.
The 96 kilometre long course, which crosses the old wagon trail out of Uniondale before joining the famous Prince Alfred’s Pass through the Outeniqua Mountains to Knysna, features 1 560 meters of climbing – but more importantly 2 300 meters of descending from the Karoo to the coast. The route snakes through four distinct biomes and offers stunning mountain vistas of a region seldom traversed by anyone but locals and adventure motorcyclists.
Entries to the 2019 race open on Sunday the 20th of January 2019, but will sell out fast so set a reminder now if you wish to take part. For more information on the BUCO Karoo to Coast please visit www.karootocoast.com.
