Apr 20 @ 7:00 am – Apr 28 @ 8:00 am

THE ROUTE IS KING

The 2017 edition of the Old Mutual joBerg2c is done and dusted. We will be adding in more sections of single track happiness for 2018 and we will continue to strive for a balance across this monumental mountain biking journey.

The 2017 route guide below will serve as a guideline as we will not change the route drastically for 2018.

The Route is King – 99.5% off-road, Subaru track (actually, Jeep track but we cannot say Jeep), tons of single-track, rural secondary roads and some k munching district road… There’s only about 10km of tar along the entire 900km.

The Old Mutual joBerg2c is ride where the destination is less important than the journey. It is about the variation and beauty of this incredible country. You will ride trails never ridden and you will meet communities you would never have never known.

Make no mistake the Old Mutual joBerg2c is a tough but extremely rewarding ride if you have prepared your backside for 9 days.

The following detailed descriptions of each day’s route is a guide as to what to expect.

MTB Trek 2 Teebus @ Steynsburg
Apr 27 @ 7:04 am – Apr 29 @ 8:04 am

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.

Recce MTB Mission @ Highland Gate, Dullstroom
Apr 28 all-day

Distance200km

Mountain bikers will cover more than 200 km on tar, district, railway service, forest and farm roads, as well as Jeep track and single track.

THe Great Kei Trek @ Queenstown
Apr 28 @ 6:30 am – Apr 30 @ 7:30 am

http://greatkeitrek.co.za/

Day 1 will be approximately 97km.

Day 2 will see riders leave The Old Thomas River, destination Komga.

Old Thomas River is on the sunny northern slopes of the Amatola mountain range.
19 farmers have made over 31 000 hectares of beautiful farmland available for conservation and recreation. With sustainable Conservation as their main aim, they are blending agriculture and conservation into a homogeneous mixture that will benefit both the farmer and nature.

The village is named after a British deserter, Thomas Bently who was killed by a poisonous bushman arrow.

The old town train station sits between old forts and dates back to the late 1870’s. The station was remodeled in 1926 and was last used in 1948. The village is brimming with history and was restored to its former glory in 2003.

Once having left Old Thomas River, they will ride on through the beautiful forests of Stutterheim before the final push of the day to Komga.

Stutterheim is the home of many picturesque hiking trails, as well as mountain streams that are well-stocked with trout – not that you will have time for fishing, but we thought you might like to know. The iconic Amatola Hiking Trail goes past Stutterheim, it was hailed as the best 7-day hike in the country, but unfortunately the facilities have become a bit run down.

After bypassing Stutterheim, riders will cycle through the Qacu Forest Reserve, home to a small group of Cape Parrots, one of the most endangered animals in SA. Look out for them. There are less than 1 000 left.

Riders will cycle along some of the old cattle and sheep passages that farmers used in the first half of the 1900’s to trek their animals to the sea. They usually had a country farm and a sea farm, and would trek the animals down for the winter, and back in the summer. From what I have heard, is that from when it was time to go to the various farms, the stock would be waiting at the gates, keen to get to the fresh grass.

Komga is a town in Amatole District Municipality in the Eastern Cape and is situated 64 km north of East London and 55 km east of Stutterheim. It was founded as a farming centre in 1877 on the site of a military camp established in 1854. Komga also boasts the oldest primary school in the whole of South Africa. (Some of you may be lucky enough to stay in the boarding house)

Day 2 will be in the region of 92km.

And then the final push, Day 3…. From Komga, through the Chaba Wind Farm, boasting seven massive Vestas wind turbines, then through the Great Kei River Valley then on to the beautiful and stunning and peaceful seaside holiday village of Morgan Bay which will be the finish of a rewarding three days of an unbelievable experience. Morgan Bay is located less than an hour from East London on South Africa’s stunning Wild Coast.

Morg’s, as it is affectionately known and is blessed with a mile-long beach, safe swimming lagoon and picturesque sea cliffs. And this is a picturesque venue for what will be a wonderful finish to some awesome three days of riding.
The owner, Richard Warren-Smith boasts that in all the years of the hotel being in operation, it’s never ever served a warm beer….. ever. (And to share a personal note, it also boasts the first pub I was ever kicked out of)

Day 3 will be in the region of 70km.

Valley Xtreme MTB Challenge @ Old Harbour, Hermanus
Apr 28 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

The trails were originally purpose built for the Cape Epic, but have since been expanded for some seriously awesome riding! Throw together 1,300 m of climbing (long route), exhilarating vineyard trails, technical terrain and sweet single track snaking along the Onrus River, and you are set to enjoy a MTB Challenge of epic proportions while being rewarded with unbeatable views.

The trails are diverse and can be enjoyed by all levels of skill and fitness. However, we advise you to only enter the 55km race if you are an experienced and skilled mountain biker.

Redstone Mountain Bike and Trail Running Weekend @ Buffelskloof, Kruisrivier, Calitzdorp
May 11 @ 6:49 am – May 12 @ 7:49 am

http://www.redstonehills.co.za/

 

Redstone is a never-to-be-forgotten experience – cyclists and runners are able to spend a full weekend with their families in the unique Red Mountains enjoying the hospitality of Calitzdorp, its people and its magnificent surroundings. There are activities and delicious food throughout the weekend for everyone in the family.

This is the 12th year that we are staging the Redstone weekend and we trust that it will be just as good or better than the previous events.

On Friday evening, after the night ride and fun run, the social event is a potjiekos dinner with live music.

On Saturday, apart from all the cycling and running events, you may enjoy the “plaasbasaar”, and buy meat (beef, lamb and mutton) at the “Vleistafel”.
As last year, the children will be able to experience and enjoy a collection of farm animals.
We will again offer a beer garden with a big screen where all the thirsty runners and riders may extend their rehydration efforts and chill with friends!

This community project is offered under the auspices of the Redstone Hills Trust.
