The annual Knysna Cycle Tour is the biggest sporting event of the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival, and is known for its scenic mountain bike routes, challenging road races and fun children’s events. It’s a two-day festival of cycling in the picturesque town of Knysna for everyone who enjoys being on a bike – from beginners to experienced riders, there’s a race for everyone!
MTB Events: Saturday, 4 July: 80 km, 50 km, 30 km and 15 km
The 80 km and 50 km events are premier seeding events for the 2016 Cape Town Cycle Tour!
Knysna is known for her beautiful and challenging mountain biking routes, and the routes, which are set up and managed by Leon Evans (Dr Evil of Cape Epic Fame), include access to sections of privately owned property that are normally closed to the public.
Road Race Events: Sunday, 5 July: 109 km and 50 km

This brand new event will offer a scenic route through the forest and past Knysna’s dams with viewpoints along the way.
