Gravel and Grape Extreme: Gravel & Grape MTB.
Take part in a challenging yet rewarding mountain bike race through family-owned vineyards and on trails that will test your mountain biking ability.
May in the Breedekloof Wine Valley is an ideal time of year for outdoor pursuits and the Gravel & Grape MTB is the perfect chance to explore the region.
Our event distances are suitable for all levels of riders. Enjoy a morning on the trails and an afternoon sipping some of the region’s finest wines.
Sharp-eyed riders will see we’ve given the name a tweak. The newly christened “Extreme” is the same race that hardcore mountain bikers have come to know and love; the Extreme simply indicates that this three-day ride is not to be taken lightly.
Featuring some of the gnarliest, purest, expertly hand-cut singletrack in the country, the Gravel & Grape Extreme is an event that takes mountain biking back to its roots. With challenging technical riding, the Extreme is best suited for riders with a sense of adventure and a well-stocked arsenal of rock-hopping, berm-bending, switchback-sizzling talent.
The route has been crafted to reflect the rugged nature of the Breedekloof Wine Valley, but also to show its gentler side. Stunning views, unique scenery, and three days of pure mountain biking will leave you gasping for more.
The Gravel and Grape Extreme is also a showcase of the region’s quality wines, hearty country food, majestic mountains, vineyards and sparkling rivers.
The hot springs of ATKV Goudini Spa, stunning Fynbos and hospitable people make this an event like few others. The Breedekloof Wine Valley is just one hour from Cape Town, and includes Rawsonville, Slanghoek, Goudini & Breerivier.
The event race village is based at Goudini Spa, making this a family weekend instead of just another rider event. Bring the family while you tackle the testing terrain.
The race is a clover leaf, with each day starting and ending at Goudini Spa, making your overnight experience one to remember.
