ATP DIY
200 MILER

Around The Pot is a stunning annual Gravel Race Event through the Overberg region, it is South Africa’s most highly anticipated gravel race, and is considered the country’s greatest gravel race.
The ATP Team is excited to now offer you another version of the race. We’ve gotten creative in an attempt to deliver a package that suits everyone and have thus put together a “DIY Around The Pot” package.
You will now be able to choose between different routes, as well as have the option of doing it in a stage race format.

For the 200 miler our recommendation is to do this in 3 days and riding about 100km each day and possibly adding a 4th day out in the Grootvadersbosch trail network.  
We have a list of selected preferred accommodation partners for this 3 days out along the route who will be offering ATP’ers a discounted rate.

This allows us to welcome you to our region year-round, based on the timing that suits your schedule.

Your standard package WILL INCLUDE
