Bridgestone Route 69 Mountain Bike Experience

Route 69 MTB Experience

Mountain biking in the Magaliesberg area and Cradle of Humankind

Previously known as The Bridgestone Route 69, we have decided that our event is up there with some of the top names and definitely one of the top routes in SA. Hence the name change to The Bridgestone Route 66.

Starting in the heart of The Cradle of Humankind and finishing at Kloofzicht Lodge also in The Cradle, some three days later, this is the ride to do if you’ve committed to doing one or more of the big mountain biking events in 2012 – Epic, Joburg2C or Sani2C.

Day 1: An 80km “warm up” starting at Monaghan Farm and taking you through to Hartebeespoort to the Van Gaalen’s Cheese Farm – home of The Magalies Adventure.

Day 2: Ok, so now you’re warmed up, get ready for a tough and challenging 70km route kicking off from Van Gaalen’s. You’ll need to negotiate more than a couple “men from the boys” climbs before reaching Maropeng in the Cradle of Humankind.

Day 3: Then get ready for the home strip with a final 60km burst from Maropeng to the luxurious 5 Star Kloofzicht Lodge in Muldersdrift.

200 km later – you’re now ready for that 5 star spoil. Kick back and enjoy a leisurely lunch, compliments of us, while you relax at the pool and soak up the views in the relaxing company of family and friends.
