Red Sands Country Lodge & Kotoko Mountain Biking Club presents “The Winter Grind” – with the success they had with the original “Grind” they decided to host a smaller event with their main focus on offering the whole family a weekend of mountain biking fun.

Red Sands Country Lodge would again play host to the event presenting the riders with some of the best single track in the Kalahari. With a total ascent of 600mt over a 30km course would defiantly test the riders. The race would also be timed on Strava – to qualify for segment prizes or podium prizes you would need to time yourself on Strava.

Athletes would be able to stay at the lodge – they offer a fully inclusive package and would cover all activities as well as meals. Should you only take part in the activities it would be R100 per item.
