Conquer the Lions Karoo to Coast – Route Guru Guidance

Conquer the K2C – Route Guidance for Beginners and Racing Snakes Alike!

Stuart Lightely is our local Knysna based, “go to guru”, when it comes to K2C route related guidance. A prolific cyclist in his own right – Stuart has done the 361 in 19 hours and 14 minutes. He is also a Provincial Enduro age category winner, has ridden 11 Cape Town Cycle Tours and EIGHTEEN editions of the K2C – including SEVEN on a rigid SINGLESPEED (PB 4:04)!

Stuart has done the K2C route over 30 times and ridden it in reverse at least 10 times! He is also the organiser of the K2C pre ride each year and the main trail builder for the beautiful MTO Concordia Trails in Knysna.

For these reasons – and also because we think he is a super human being – we are partnering with him in the next months to give our 2024 K2C beginner and racing snake riders some great route guidance.
