Maloti 100 are you ready to ride the 3rd Highest pass in South Africa
THE 100 MILER
The route is non technical, following the district gravel roads between Barkly East to Rhodes, over the Naude’s Nek pass to Maclear. With a Short Tar Road section out of Barkly East before hitting the dirt… Maloti 100
Don’t burn your matches to early as the climbs takes no prisoners.
The Eastern Cape is beautiful but it is also brutal, believe us when we say this is not a route that should be underestimated.
Many a rider has started to fast, skipped a water point or thought it would be easy. This is a proper challenge, with wind, heat & altitude being major factors we urge you to come prepared.
Cycling over the Naude’s Nek pass (3rd Highest pass in South Africa) will prove to be the major test for the day as the highest point tips out at 2690m.
After reaching the top, riders will be rewarded with 60km down hill towards Maclear. Enjoy the ride!
