Durbanville (Cape Town) –The grounds of the picturesque Meerendal Wine Estate will be a hub of excitement on Saturday, 05 and Sunday, 06 September 2015 when mountain bike enthusiasts of all ages gather to partake in a weekend of exciting riding at the inaugural ISUZU MTB Festival Cape Town.

Adding to the festival’s ethos of starting them young, event organisers have included yet another fun event, the Ybike Trail Series.  YbikeSA launches their fantastic new kiddies trail event for ages 2-5 years. Boasting a premium and innovative range of balance bikes, Ybike products are specifically designed to encourage the development of vital gross motor skills, as well as balance, co-ordination and self-confidence in children.

“As promised there will be something for everyone at the ISUZU MTB Festival,” says Alexa Cunningham, MTB Events Manager of Stillwater Sports.  “Along with the Fedhealth Kids Events taking place on the Saturday, we will be presenting an exciting new event concept for the younger generation.  The Ybike Kiddies Trail Event will feature a series of obstacles in a safe and enclosed area.  The young ones can either bring their own balance bikes and helmets or try out the Ybikes available on the day.  The first 100 entries will receive a well-deserved medal and goodie bag.”

The ISUZU MTB Festival Cape Town will cater for mountain bikers of all ages and expertise.
