Don't Be a Fool in April

The hallowed trail network of Piket-Bo-Berg is once again playing host to an open weekend, on 17 & 18 April.

Following the spectacular success of their open weekend in October 2020, they’re doing it again. This year with the addition of a trail run. As with last year’s happening, the idea is to raise funds for the Piket-Bo-Berg Residents Association - the beneficiaries of the annual Piket-Bo-Berg Cycle Challenge and Trail Run, which did not take place in 2020.

 

So, you can enjoy some spectacular trail riding (or running) and do some good at the same time. But, as last year showed, you’re going to have to hurry to book your spot. Numbers are limited (ticking all the COVID protocol boxes) and it will sell out fast.

 

To be eligible to ride, you need to purchase a pass.

Here's What Else You Need to Know

  • Nobody’s going racing. It’s not even an event, it’s just a lekker ‘happening’ - a run and ride!
  • E-bikes are welcome.
  • Trail Runner’s can tackle an 18km route on Mouton’s Valley Farm. For those wanting something shorter, there are “shortcuts’ off the route.
  • Passes are highly limited (300 per route, buy now, here). *insert EntryNinja page link
  • There are three MTB distances (45km, 30km, 25km) available with different starting points on three separate farms, offering you the opportunity to tailor your mountain adventure. See the attached maps for elevations.
  • If the longer MTB distance is sold out, simply buy a pass for the shorter route and do that first and then move on to the next farm and route. If you know, you know!
  • The price is the same for all three MTB routes. (You can purchase a ‘DAY PASS’ or a ‘WEEKEND PASS’ which allows you to ride Saturday and Sunday).
  • There will be coffee, soft drinks and food available for sale at the start of Route A (Mouton’s Valley Farm).
  • Each route will have a water point to refill water bottles.

Details

 

You have to start at the route (45km, 30km, 25km) for which you purchased a pass. This is for us to comply with social distancing protocols.

 

Pass sales will close on 15 April 2021.

 

No spectators or pets will be allowed on the trails and you have to sign in and out at the start point on the farm of your chosen route.

 

We’re going! See you there…
