de Hoop Vlei MTB Experience

The De Hoop Vlei MTB Experience takes in three days of spectacular mountain biking in and around the De Hoop Nature Reserve.

The three day mountain bike experience will showcase all of these aspects, as well as visit the surrounding farms where wheat and canola fields will be growing in the Overberg sun, while Merino sheep graze alongside blue cranes, the South African national bird, in the next paddock.

Two of the three days of the event will feature entirely new routes, never used before by mountain bike races or weekend fun riders visiting the De Hoop Collection. Local farmer and avid mountain biker, Niel Neethling, is responsible for the routes and promises stages of 55, 65 and 52 kilometres in distance with 900, 1 300 and 800 meters of climbing respectively.
