Back for the 7th time by popular demand, it’s The Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Experience and is, without a doubt, the most popular stage race in Gauteng. In true Leverage Corporation fashion, this will be a ride where you will be challenged; it will be a ride which you will enjoy; and it will be a fantastic event which is well organised and run.
This must be part of your 2017-training programme, especially if you’ve committed to doing one or more of the big mountain biking events in 2017 – Epic, Joburg2C or Sani2C.
It’s a tough and challenging three-day MTB event starting on Friday 17th to Sunday 19th February 2017
You have a choice of doing one of the following events:
1) 3 days: The Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Experience,
2) 2 days: The Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Weekend Experience, or
3) 1 day: The Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Mini Experience – Corporate Packages only
The 3-day experience will start and finish at the Thatch Cafe, Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve in The Cradle of Humankind, some three days later.
Date: Friday 17 – Sunday 19 Feb 2017
Distance: 80km | 70km | 60km
Solo Rider: R2 500 (no fee increase)
Teams of Two: R 5 000 (no fee increase)
Here’s what the race entails:
Day 1: An 80km “warm up” – starting at The Thatch Cafe, Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve and finishing at the amphitheatre at Maropeng in The Cradle of Humankind.
Day 2: A tough and challenging 75km route starting and finishing at Maropeng. But you’ll need to negotiate more than a couple “men from the boys” climbs and technical bits before arriving back at Maropeng.
Day 3: A final 60km burst from Maropeng to The Thatch Cafe, Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve.
210 km later – you’re now ready for that 5 star spoil. Kick back and enjoy a leisurely lunch, compliments of us, while you relax on the lawns and soak up the views in the company of family and friends.
