Funky Fynbos Mountain Bike Race

The Gansbaai routes and races are known for being tough. We offer a 2 day challenge, 47km & 40km, for the brave. A great race to train for the Eselfontein Race or just test yourself against our trails. Otherwise you could just do the long race, 47km on day 1, or enter the 8km loop and choose a distance to race, 8, 16 or 24km. Whilst the trails remain the same for the most part, there have been some interesting additions to the climbs, including switchbacks and will now finish with a 2km fun gravity driven downhill with fun jumps and berms.

The Funky Fynbos Mountain Bike Race requires an above average level of fitness and technical skills and traverses some of the most beautiful private farms within the Walker Bay conservancy, and is only available to ride on race days. The trails offer a little of everything, tough climbs and switchbacks, great single track, fast exhilarating descents and a 2km fun gravity finish with jumps and berms to rest your legs into the finish (chicken runs available).
