Mountain bikers can look forward to the eighth annual Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience taking place in Stellenbosch on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November 2021.
An individual two-day MTB stage race, the Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience not only highlights the beauty of Stellenbosch, but a vast network of world-class and exclusive trails while celebrating the origin of SA mountain biking.
“Affectionately dubbed the ‘MTB party of the year’, mountain bikers will be treated to an on-route party from start to finish. The Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience will treat riders to the best trails on offer in Stellenbosch. Remember that temperatures can soar around this time of the year. Although the water points will be fully stocked, we encourage riders to also carry enough water with them. We cannot wait to welcome riders,” says Michael Meyer, managing director of Stillwater Sports and event founder.
