Telkom 947 Mountain Bike Challenge 2018

The routes constructed for this year’s Telkom 947 Mountain Bike Challenge on 10 and 11 November offer an adventure on a bicycle in the heart of Joburg.

Three options at every skill and fitness level are available:

The 55km* route targets more technically advanced mountain bikers. The tracks show off some private land not usually accessible over Steyn City, and the Heron Bridge college property before an unusual tour from the back of Northern Farm that jumps back into Steyn City. With plenty of hand-cut single track over bridges, steep traverses and funky maintenance tweaks on sections we might think we know, this lends a great down and dirty adventure. Riders will need to qualify for the 55km*, to ensure safety on the route and a superior trail experience without bottlenecks.

The 25km* route offers a fun but not overly technical ride for new to fairly seasoned weekend warriors to see quite a few parts of Joburg where the public can’t usually roam. This is an adventure with river crossings, single track and jeep track riding and a few interesting urban obstacles. The route runs through the last open spaces in the greater Glenferness area, some privately owned property, and then heads onto Cluny Farm’s land where there is a very special water point. Riders can then look forward to a section in Inanda Country Base with a few sneaky little climbs where they might be tempted to do a saddle swop, as this is usually an equestrian playground. You'll the forested single tracks before return to Riversands. On Saturday 10 November, there is also a 10km route with a great introduction to trails for beginners and a bit more of a challenge than the Telkom 947 Kiddies Ride for older or more eager kids. This can also provide a fantastic opportunity for the WHOLE family to get out and enjoy their bikes together. Entries are limited – and you don’t want FOMO!

You can remember these events with a lovely range of commemorative gear. Our merchandise store offers items both for on-the-day and showing off your participation afterwards. *distances may vary up to 5km
