TZANEEN CYCLING CLUB presents a MTB race and ROAD race in ONE WEEKEND!

 With the date that falls over a school long weekend, it is the ideal opportunity for a breakaway for the whole family.  There is so much to do in the Magoebaskloof area over that specific weekend with the KIWI FESTIVAL also happening.  For more info go to:  http://www.limpopobookings.co.za/kiwi-festival.php.

Miami Canners is our title sponsor of the MTB race and for more info and their products go to:  www.miamicanners.co.za.

The MTB race of 3 MAY starts at MERENSKY HIGH SCHOOL and the route itself takes you through the scenic indigenous forests, bluegum and pine plantations of the Magoebaskloof mountains.  The 35km  route are mostly on gravel roads and jeeptracks and are suitable for riders of all abilities.  For the more serious riders, there will be a 70km distance which takes you up to the remote area just underneath the Woodbush Towers and back to part of the famous Forest Drive where it will be almost just downhill from there.  With one more big challenge to the last water table with a moderate climb of around 3km, which will also be the “HOTSPOT” on the 70km challenge, it will be just downhill to the finish!  Both the 35km & 70km will be Limpopo Qualifying Races.  The race starts at 08:00 and the distances are 70km (R150), 35km (R100) and 14km funride (R50).

MAGOEBASKLOOF HOTEL is our title sponsor of the ROAD race and they have a special for that weekend for more info go to:  http://www.magoebaskloof.co.za/special/road-challenge 

The ROAD race of 4 MAY starts at MAGOEBASKLOOF HOTEL and the 100km race is back and the challenge is even BIGGER in 2014.  The route takes you to Haenertsburg, down  Georges Valley, around Tzaneen dam and back up MAGOEBASKLOOF pass.  The 70km won’t go around Tzaneen dam.  The 25km route takes you to Haenertsburg and back.  The MAGOEBASKLOOF HOTEL ROAD CHALLENGE will also be a Limpopo qualifying race.  The race starts at 08:00 and the distances are 100km (R170), 70km (R120) and 25km (R70).
