  • Mixed – a minimum of 3 female riders need to finish within the first 6 riders of this team. Failing to do so will result in this team being classified as an Open Team. There will be a first place prize awarded in this category, provided there are at least 5 mixed teams competing.
  • Open (any combination of gender) – An Open Team may consist of male riders only, or teams with fewer than 3 female riders.

Teams with single bikes and tandems combined, or teams comprising of only tandems will be given an official team time (Open Team category) but will not be eligible for any team prizes.

The start and finish will be at the President Square, Clarens. The route will take teams from Clarens to Bethlehem to follow the R26 before turning right onto the undulating R714 towards Warden and Eenzaamheid. Thereafter it’s a right turn onto the R57 towards Kestell before the last stretch on the R712 which includes a tough hilly section through the Golden Gate Highlands National Park. The route is generally undulating, with some steep and tough hills in the last 40 km. This is not a ride for beginners.
