The Breedekloof Wine Valley, near Worcester is set to host the area’s first stage race from the 25th to the 27th of April 2015. Entrants of the Slanghoek Triathlon or the Slanghoek MTB Classic will be familiar with the area and some of the great trails. They’ve been hard at work cutting new trails though and the Gravel and Grape will act as a showcase for the riding (and wines in the area).
The three day race will end on Freedom Day, meaning you won’t have to take leave – which is a thoughtful bit of scheduling. The routes are up on the event website already, so you plot your strategy of where to coast and where to expend energy blasting the single track. Find out more at www.gravelandgrape.com.
