Day 10: Depart after breakfast for the ride.

The first day starts off down the valley on flowing single track through the Acacia Meander and past the pecan grove

before climbing up to Montusi Lodge via a short section of tar. From Montusi it's back on the single track down into the

Wanhoop Valley, across the Wanhoop stream and into the Langkloof community. Stop for cold drinks at a local spaza

shop before heading up the spectacular Berg Traverse. This section of trail is usually only accessible as part of the

Ridetheberg race, so this is a special section. The descent back into the Wanhoop Valley offers some challenging switch

backs – just to make sure everyone is wide awake. The trail then climbs steeply back to Montusi via Angry Astma, and

then back up the valley to The Cavern. +- 45 km

If the group stays at Montusi, the route will exclude the ride down the valley past the Pecan Grove and back again, but

will include more of the single track around Montusi.

The distance will be +- 30km.

Overnight:: at the Resort.

Day 11: Depart after breakfast for the start of the ride.

Back down the valley on the fast single track, but this time keeping to the track that runs parallel to the road. Then the

climbing starts. Over the hill to Alpine Heath, then 6km of steep climbing on the concrete strips to Greenfire Lodge. The

pain is worth the reward at the top – the new Ingwe trail is a mind-blowing meander through the sandstone outcrops

and yellow wood trees. The trail then joins back up with the Nook road – a 4x4 trail which hugs the Sandstone cliffs and

ends with an arm pumping descent past Montusi. Stop in there for a cup of tea and a scone, (or the lovely Drakensberg

Brewery Craft Beer) before meandering back to the Cavern via the single track of the Windmill trail and the awesome

berms on Forbidden Pass. (+- 38km)

If the group stays at Montusi the ride will start down the Berms at Forbidden Pass, take in the switchbacks on the Quad

The trail past the Montusi Waterfall Cave and Owls Pass, before heading through the fields past the Pecan Grove and the

climb over to Alpine Heath and up to Greenfire. The ride finishes with the fast Nook Road descent. (+- 36kms).

Overnight: at the Resort.

Day 12: Depart after a healthy breakfast for the start of the ride.

Today’s route starts with a sharp climb out of the Cavern on to the spectacular Grotto Trail and heads over to All Out

Adventures via Down Time – an 8km masterpiece of co-ordinated turns that drop-down form the ridge into the valley.

After a cappuccino, the fun continues down the Berm Trail into the Montusi Gorge. If the guys have the legs for it they can

have a go at the Lap Race (2x 5km laps) to see if they can get on to the leader board. If the Lap Race isn’t on the cards,

the route meanders back through the valley on a gentle gradient, along the river in the acacia trees, until the last climb

up The Cavern (+-25km)

If the group stays at Montusi the ride will start down the berms of Forbidden Pass and through the single track beside

the Pecan trees, before joining with the trail that climbs up to The Cavern. The ride finishes back up Forbidden Pass. (+-

35km).

Overnight: at the Resort.

Day 13: After breakfast departs for Durban airport!
