Riders will depart from Swellendam and will experience 160km of gravel road, racing towards the Potberg mountain. They will then cross the Malgas ferry in a 45min neutral zone before riding the last 60km back towards Swellendam where the Gravel KING and QUEEN will be crowned each year.
There will be a shorter 98km ride which will also make use of the famous ferry, as well as a 40km fun ride through the Bontebok National Park.
Riders will experience a superbly well-organized event with some great goodie bags, well-stocked water points, and spectacular on-route scenery.
Every rider will receive a roosterkoek at the Malgas ferry and a finisher hamburger with all food prepared by Swellendam High & Primary Schools. The start and finish venue for this event will be the Swellendam Showgrounds.
Safe parking, security, chill zones, and showers at the finish will add to a great rider experience for all.
