THE exciting family orientated Seabreeze Build it “Bitter-Sweet” MTB Challenge is to take place on 17 and 18 October.

Join scores of riders at this inaugural, two-day event at Rocky Bay Resorts on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast.

A one-of-a-kind adventure awaits mountain bikers at the resort, 45 minutes from Durban. Tucked away in a coastal forest that is home to many birds, raptors and crested cranes, it is cyclists’ paradise. It will offer you the perfect opportunity and terrain to test your skills, all while taking in panoramic views of the ocean.

“MTB events are a popular means of increasing visitors to the South Coast and its hinterland and this event is an exciting addition to the activity calendar the district hosts each year. I believe that going forward, our destination will become a recognised MTB hub for the large cycling fraternity,” said Justin Mackory, Ugu South Coast Tourism CEO.

So put your bike – and your body – through its paces along the bush track, packed with enough uphills to test your endurance and all the downhills to enjoy the thrill of speed.

The competition is open to men and women, 15 and over, of varying skill levels, so bring the family and make a weekend of it. The event is supported by Build it, which has its eye on empowering its owners to engage with their respective communities in a meaningful, relevant and sustainable way.

Day one will see participants getting their heart rate pumping as they take on a 60-kilometre trail. Day two’s route is 40 kilometres
