The 2017 Bestmed Berge en Dale Classic, presented by Optimum Financial Services, will for the first time host a mountain bike component on Sunday, 5 February 2017.
The venue for the mountain bike event is Hero Adventure Hobby Park in Krugersdorp and the race presents 40km and 15km route options.
The routes have been sculpted on the Krugersdorp Ridge and include vast sections of the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens.
The 40km ride is undulating but only boasts 500m of ascent, so it’s a mild challenge for skilled riders while the 15km is a fun ride geared towards attracting newbies to the sport.
