The school holiday is about to start and Stilbaai will again treat its visitors with a variety of activities like the 2016 Amana Properties Stilbaai Mountain Bike Challenge that will take place on Saturday, March 26, and three routes are being planned for this year’s event.
This mountain bike event aims to attract not only the ‘local’ riders who could not participate in the regular mountain bike event (this year called the Windpomp Sjerrie Traverse) due to hectic work commitments or not being in Stilbaai during the December holiday at all, but also the holiday makers who visit Stilbaai during the holiday in autumn.
The Stilbaai MTB Challenge took place for the first time in 2015 and attracted riders from all over the Garden Route and Karoo. This year’s event will see a few changes due to the race taking place during the Easter Holidays which is traditionally an extremely popular time when thousands of visitors make their way to Stilbaai and Jongensfontein. The organisers and route setters will keep the race to the eastern side of Stilbaai (not going over the bridge) so as to not cross any major tarred roads. All the action will take place from Julie-Se-Baai, the camping terrain adjacent to the R305 just before the entrance and bridge to Stilbaai.
