The Wild Corridor

The Route…
Starting just outside the Addo Elephant National Park in the Springbokvlakte, the tour covers a distance of 400km’s over the 5 day period. Participants will cycle over the breathtaking Cockscomb into Patensie, winding their way through the pristine wilderness of the Baviaanskloof and Garden Route National Park, finishing off on
the beach in beautiful Plettenberg Bay. There will be a total of 9652 meters of climbing and 10124 meters of descent, however the event is all about the experience and riders will be seeded into groups based on a pace that they are comfortable with.
The Experience …
Each overnight location has been chosen for its individual character and intimacy. After a day spent coasting through the country side, riders will arrive at already set up camps, where they will be able to enjoy cold beverages, sumptuous food and fireside banter. There will be a variety of entertainment every evening as well
as the opportunity to connect with fellow riders, tour ambassadors and host Graeme Joffe, before turning in for the night, for a well deserved rest.
The passion behind the pedal…
The Wild Corridor Mountain Bike Tour is about creating awareness for the Wild Brand and its conservation mission. Apart from enjoying the incredible scenery, wildlife and overall camaraderie that the tour has to offer, there is a passion behind the pedalling and all funds raised will go to SANParks and Wild to assist in the
preservation of South Africa’s national assets. In addition to this the tour will be twinning with schools along the route to leave a legacy of conservation through education.
