This is a festival of Vintage & Classic cycling.
This will be the 7th running of this annual event.
Ride your old steel road bikes on gravel roads like the heroes of the past did. All classic and vintage bikes are welcome. However participants are encouraged to ride a South African made classic or vintage steel bicycle. So dust off your old bike and get it ready!
There are two distances, 80+km or 50+km.
This is not a race but a fairly tough ride to appreciate and pay homage to what our cycling heroes faced when participating in the past.
Fabulous food stops are included along the way.
Experience the fun and camaraderie of riding with other classic bicycle enthusiasts while taking in the beautiful scenery of the Kamberg valley in the Natal Midlands.
A classic bicycle display will be held on the Saturday afternoon along with a Concourse Competition for the best classic bicycle.
