Enjoy picturesque Ixopo from your mountain bike

2012-08-24 00:00

ENTRIES are open for the 16th annual Lynford Clover Super Classic MTB race that takes place on September 9 at Lynford School, Ixopo. This popular mountain bike event features spectacular views of the district and two courses, an intermediate course of 20 kilometres and an advanced course of 40 kilometres.

Runners and walkers have a chance to participate on the Saturday in the trail run, which starts at 8 am, and consists of two loops in and out of shady forests, dairy pastures, grassland and cattle paths of picturesque Ixopo. The run provides uncongested, hilly, fairly technical running set against the beauty of Alan Paton’s “Beloved Country”. The first 10 km loop is a fast undulating run, while the second 10 km loop is a more challenging and hilly route. There will be a water point at the 10 km mark, so take camelpacks if you require extra hydration.
