The beautiful and untouched gem of the Garden Route, Storms River Village, will host riders on this, a 3-day mountain bike stage ride designed specifically around the family. For those of you that have not yet experienced the south’s best kept secret will surely get to know the unspoilt natural forests of the Tsitsikamma area. With tracks hugging the rugged coastline and views only seen on postcards, we promise the weekend of a lifetime.
Tsitsikamma Village Inn, a quaint and cosy hotel, on the edge of the indigenous forests, will be our start and finish venue come August. This hotel, established in 1946 boasts an impressive array of facilities with a pub that has serious historical significance, rooms each with its own theme from another era and Café Bacchus, the gathering spot to exchange stories of the day. If adventure is your thing, the leisurely afternoons after each stage can be spent traversing the canopies of the forests on a treetop canopy tour, visiting the Tsitsikamma National Park or Storms River Mouth and take a boat trip up the gorge.
This ride is designed around the intermediate cyclist looking for an adventure without having to spend hours training every day. The daily distances range from 50-70 km and will traverse the mountains, plantations and coastline adjacent to the Village. This is not only about the ride, but more importantly, about forging those friendships made en-route and enjoying a weekend away.
All services are catered for from sports massage, bike wash and technical back-up – all supplied within the village. Our hosts have pulled out all stops to welcome you to their village, where you, our guests, can expect only the best in food and entertainment.
