Local lifestyle sports marketing agency, Stillwater Sports is looking forward to closing the year off on a high note at the iconic Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November 2021!

“It’s been a roller coaster of a year, but we are pulling out all the stops to turn that around by hosting an on-route MTB party that will leave mountain bikers in awe,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the event.  “Incorporating a vast network of world-class trails that are usually not open to the public, mountain bikers can look forward to experiencing the most iconic routes on offer in the beautiful town of Stellenbosch.  There will be new route additions that are guaranteed to get the heart-rate pumping, while golden oldies such as G-Spot and Bartinney’s Skyfall (to mention just a few) will still feature.  Let’s not forget about the adored Jonkershoek Trail Network that has been recovering since the Boland fire earlier this year.  We are excited to close off the year in the company of SA’s mountain biking community at the much-loved ‘on route MTB party of the year’, the Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience.”
