MOUNTAIN bikers from across the country and even a few from out of the country are heading to the Sundays River Valley where the annual PWC Great Zuurberg Trek will be held from tomorrow until Sunday.

The event consists of 3 circular route stages, all starting and finishing at Zuurberg Mountain Village. This is very convenient as bikers and their supporters do not have to pack up their stuff and move house each day.

They also don’t need to see to transport logistics to get back to their cars after the final stage.

It is hosted by Hayterdale Trails which is located in a unique position offering a completely different riding experience depending on which direction you ride.

Stage 1 (South East) heads down into the picturesque Sundays River Valley, cris-crossing the Sundays River and parts of the Addo Elephant National Park

Stage 2 (North East) takes bikers to remote, untouched sections of the Addo Elephant National Park. There they will ride along the northern ridges of the Zuurberg Mountains before dropping down into the flats of the Karoo and through Addo Elephant Back Safaris.

Stage 3 (East & West) will have the bikers hug the Southern slopes of the Zuurberg Mountains as they traverse some of the best purpose-built MTB singletrack in South Africa.

Stage distances:

Stage 1: +/- 70km with 1400m climbing (Sundays River Valley)

Stage 2: +/- 75km with 1970m climbing (Untouched singletrack and jeeptrack in the heart of the Zuurberg Mountains)

Stage 3: +/- 50km with 1380m climbing (Singletrack Heaven at Hayterdale Trails)
