Come experience rugged trails, strenuous climbs and epic descents in the 2020 PwC Great Zuurberg Trek. Mountain bikers will be treated to three days of scintillating riding, luxurious Eastern Cape hospitality and the camaraderie of a compact group of like-minded riders. Taking place from 29 to 31 May the race covers a total of 209 kilometres and explores the Zuurberg Mountains, the Sundays River Valley and the ever increasingly storied Hayterdale Trails.
“We do cater for the racer, but I think the PwC Great Zuurberg Trek has more to offer than just racing” event co-owner Siska van der Bijl revealed. “It’s about meeting new people in the small field, making new friends and enjoying the adventure. The landscape and trails are so diverse; we try to match that with the post-stage treats for the riders. The type of riders we believe should enter the race are those who have ticked the box of sleeping in a tent on a mattress on the ground at a stage race and are now looking for something more luxurious. The Eastern Cape has more to offer than most people realise and we try to always showcase the province, its people and the landscape at its best. It is not an easy race, but it is rewarding!”
