We all know if you really want to, you can ride your bike from Cullinan to Tonteldoos in under 24 hours….. but why do that, when you can actually slow down and enjoy the scenery a little.
Join us on this 3 night, 4 day* MTB holiday, enjoying great district roads, beautiful views, interacting with rural communities and enjoying delicious local produce along the way
* the November trip includes an extra day at the finish to explore the area

This 4 night, 5 day MTB tour (note: not a race), will take you along winding country roads, all the way from the sleepy mining town of Cullinan, via the Bushveld beauty of Loskop dam, then on to the eccentricity of Tonteldoos (it means “tinder box” for those who were wondering, and has nothing to do with a dating app, or anatomy….), then on to Verlorenkloof Estate, to enjoy some well deserved R&R and some amazing single track.
