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.
The Bezhoek Extreme MTB Festival is an awesome, 3-day event.

They have again fine tuned the route and made some amazing new changes. Even more jeeptrack and singletrack can be expected with a suprise or two.
This is the scene at the start of the annual limited-entry Lormar MTB Tour – a unique three-day mountain bike experience in the heart of the Karoo. The Tour entails riding along 200 year old stone walls, on smooth “sheeptracks” and passing the familiar windpomp scenes along the way. Experience authentic Karoo hospitality with spitbraais, fresh farm bread, condensedmilk coffee, koeksisters & craft beer amidst picturesque sunsets. Lormar is not about crossing the finish line as quick as possible but rather about a riding experience like no other.
