Stage Races are a thing of the past….

Mass Participation events are over……time to try something a little different.

Well, for the rest of this year at least. It’s time we all face up to the reality, that regardless of what level of lockdown we may move into next, mass participation events, like the MTB stage races we have become accustomed to in S.A, will not be taking place any time soon. Those events for the year that have not already been cancelled or postponed, in all likelihood will be in the near future.

At Adventure Solutions we don’t necessarily see that as a bad thing though, rather we see it as an opportunity to offer you all something a little bit different. There is no reason your fitness and training and all the money spent on bikes and gear needs to go to waste. Rather join one of our exclusive, small group MTB experiences.

These events are non competitive, and all about the pure joy of riding mountain bikes in wonderful wilderness environments. We firmly believe that the mountain bike is the greatest tool for getting yourself out there and enjoying what mother nature has to offer. 

These events, have a lot to offer you as a mountain biker, for starters, none of our events will ever take on more than 12 riders, both to keep the exclusivity of the experience, and not disturb the wilderness atmosphere of the venues. As a side benefit, this also allows us to practice suitable social distancing protocols and minimise your risk in terms of Covid – 19. 

The other major feature that you can look forward to is that the accommodation and catering will always be at a standard far above your average stage race. Sure, many events give upgrade options that will see you put up in guesthouses and similar, but with our events this is the norm, and at a price point way below what the tented options will set you back on a stage race. 

So if you are looking to still get out there and ride your MTB this year, take a look at the events we have on offer. Surely there must be something that ticks all your boxes.

Highlights on the calender for us include the epic crossing of the Makgadigadi Pans in Botswana.
