31km MTB

This route has been planned for mountain bikers of average fitness and covers a distance of just over 31km.

The ride begins at the Church hall where you obtain your entry form also. It is a one way route that take you through the diversity of our agricultural environment. You will ride along our famous Breede River and also through some of our wine farms in the valley. The route will take you out of town where a few hills will test your strenth, but the views alongs the route and smell of our renosterveld and fynbos will help you back to a stunning ride to the finish. There will be water points along the route but make sure you have enough water for the November heat. Make sure that your tyres are filled with sludge and where possible bring a spare tube.

50km MTB

This route is for the fitter mountain bike rider. You will start at the same venue as the shorter route and will follow the route after which you will turn off onto the longer route. The technical part of the route is moderate which will also be the same for the hills on this route. The larger part of the route is in our renosterveld farm land, where you will be riding a single track route, have a few hills to content with and also have to handle your bike on a few loose gravel areas. There is also parts of the route where you can sit back, or paddle hard and enjoy our scenery of river, wine farms and the Langeberg Mountain range. You will need to have done a few 50km rides prior to the Bonanza route. Water points will help you get refreshed and make sure you have sludge and a spare tube.
