VENUE:    Breedekloof Wine Valley

The Gravel & Grape Mountain Bike Events are the ideal windows into the world of the Breedekloof Valley. Stunning views, bountiful wine farms, green valleys and abundant nature are the rewards for riding the Gravel & Grape.

By involving a number of wine farms into the race, each day offers something different, from the highest peaks to the lowest valley floors.

Featuring some of the gnarliest single-track in the country, the Gravel & Grape 3-day and 2-day Extreme are events that takes mountain biking back to its roots. With challenging technical riding, the Extreme is best suited for riders with a sense of adventure and a well-stocked arsenal of rock-hopping, berm-bending, switchback-sizzling talent.

The Gravel & Grape Adventure race follows the same trails as the Gravel & Grape Extreme, but the days and distances are shorter.  There is still ample opportunity to enjoy a good variety of single-track, climbs and jeep track.
