Back for the 11th 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 2021-training programme, especially if you’ve committed to doing one or more of the big mountain biking events in 2021 – Epic, Great Kei Trek,  Joburg2C or Sani2C.

It’s a tough and challenging three-day MTB event starting on Friday 26th to Sunday 28th February 2021

You have a choice of doing one of the following events:

  • The Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Experience (3-day)
  • The Bridgestone Route 66 Weekend MTB Experience (2-day)
  • The Bridgestone Route 66 Lite (3-day)
  • The Bridgestone Route 66 Weekend Lite (2-day)
  • Saturday Mini – 45km (1-day)
  • The Bridgestone Route 66 Sunday Mini MTB Experience (1-day)

The 3-day experience will start and finish at the Kloofzicht Lodge in Muldersdrift, some three days later.
Date: Friday 26 – Sunday 28 Feb 2021

Here’s what the race entails:
Day 1: An 90km “warm up” – starting at Kloofzicht Lodge and finishing at the amphitheatre at Happy Acres in Magaliesburg.
Day 2: A tough and challenging 75km route starting and finishing at Happy Acres. But you’ll need to negotiate more than a couple “men from the boys” climbs and technical bits before arriving back at Happy Acres.
Day 3: A final 60km burst from Happy Acres to Kloofzicht Lodge.

225 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.
