Adrenalin and adventure in the Karoo
Three days of pure bliss under the African sun and the Milky Way in the Karoo. From 27 – 29 April 2018, this and more await adrenalin junkies in this MTB Trek 2 Teebus that stretches over 210 km with 2 800 m of elevation gain. (Teebus is a well known landmark in the Steynsburg region in the Karoo.)
This route will mainly consist of jeep and single-track crossing private farms around Steynsburg with some sections of gravel roads. All stages will start and finish at Harmonie farm, 12 km west of Steynsburg. (GPS Coordinates: 31* 21’30.07″ S 25* 43’08.30″ E).
Stunning scenery on all 3 days awaits all riders. Day 1 crossing lots of private land and some sheep trails. Day 2 will include the majestic Bullhoek pass. This pass is not open to the public but was built as a service road for the Orange Fish Tunnel. With 5.5km and over 400 meters of climbing this will make you legs burn but will be rewarding with beautiful Karoo views and King and Queen of the mountain. On day 3 every rider will have the chance to go underground into the service tunnel of the Orange Fish tunnel and exsperience one of the best engineering masterpieces of its time. After crossing the open water channel at the tunnel outlet it will be an amazing memory to take home as the last 10km awaits.
