Location: Gauteng

The ever-popular Pennypinchers Silverstar Mountain Bike Challenge, presented by ASG, returns to the top of the Krugersdorp Ridge in Gauteng this spring.

Offering 20km and 40km options, the ride is a true test of mountain biking skill.

The route is filled with challenges – like the new 150-metre floating bridge – but designed to be rideable and flowing throughout.

Route director Darren Herbst has designed a pearler on the Ridge and much route building has been done and is still continuing in the lead-up to the event.

The 40km route features 700 metres of climbing, while 20km riders ascend over 400 metres.

The field is limited to 800 riders.

Entry fees: 40km – R210; 20km – R160

Start times: 40km – 8am; 20km – 8.15am

Entries close: August 30
