Van Gaalen really does its job to show off what the Magalies area has to offer for mountain bike thrill seekers, without disappointing results. Over the years, hand built single track has been put together which meanders through the Magalies ravines and gorges, as well as along river banks and over bridges. The trails at the cheese farm switch between varied terrain and include river crossings, bush tunnels and spectacular views, with occasional tough climbs.
You can look forward to a great day out, supporters are able to see some of the race from a hot air balloon at Bill Harrop’s Balloon Safaris. Routes features with hand built single track, uncongested routes with little overlap, well stocked water points, an expo area, local food stalls & craft beer, massages, bike wash and VIP Area.
