Entries are open for SA’s MTB party of the year, the 7thannual Origin Of Trails MTB Experience that will take Stellenbosch by storm on Saturday 30 November 2019 and Sunday 01 December 2019.

 

“An individual 2-day MTB Experience, the Origin Of Trails reminds mountain bikers why they ride,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports. “Instead of racing, entrants are encouraged to savor the moment, take in the spectacular Stellenbosch views and enjoy the trails.  There are enough mountain bike races in the Western Cape.  The Origin Of Trails is an experience.  The routes highlight the beauty and splendor of the City Of Oaks. Mountain bikers can look forward to the ‘once a year opportunity’ to experience a vast network of world class trails.  In 2018 we opened the experience to trail runners with the introduction of the Origin Of Trails Trail Run (+-15km and +-5km) making Saturday 30 November and Sunday 01 December the perfect weekend in Stellenbosch for off-road adventurers.”
