Gravel and grape Adventure

Gravel and Grape Adventure

The Gravel & Grape Adventure is two day mountain bike challenge that covers 65km of cycling over the course of its two stages.
Day 1 will cover 35km and 350m of climbing, while Day 2 is a 30km route with a 640m of climbing.
The race is also a clover leaf format, with each day starting and ending at ATKV Goudini Spa. The Gravel & Grape Adventure is a team and solo event. Entries can be made in two different categories: junior and open by teams or individuals whom would like to take part in the solo competition.
The junior category is for both team members between the ages of 16 and 18 years, while the open category can be a son/daughter, husband/wife, daughter/father team or any two adults who would like to experience their first stage race.
The routes will follow the same trail as the Gravel & Grape Extreme, so while the days and distances are shorter, you’ll still be riding on the same terrain as the main event. Participants will have the opportunity to enjoy a good variety of singletrack, climbs and jeep track.

I was coaxed by my Cape Epic team mate Jurgen Uys to ride a brand new stage race called Gravel and Grape. The thing that tipped it for me was the idea of staying at a hot water spa conveniently situated in a wine valley......
