Hobbiton Mountain Bike Race 2021

We are sad to announce that our Mountain bike challenge had to be postponed until 16 December 2022. But put it in your dairies now for next year and see you then!

Nowhere else in South Africa will you be afforded a more iconic ride than in Hogsback. Hug the dramatic dolerite rock faces of the three mountains before dipping into the cool indigenous forest filled with squawking Cape Parrots and then ascending onto plateaus of vast grasslands dotted with scented pine trees before the final descent of magical forest and streams back to Hobbiton and the screeching audience of Samango monkeys.

The race will include a 5km Fun Ride, 15km and 45km routes hugging the dolerite rock faces of the iconic three Hogsback Mountains. The longer route will take riders through normally restricted areas of indigenous forest filled with squawking Cape Parrots (endangered), up onto vast grasslands, and then through cool pine plantations before descending back towards Hobbiton and more magical forest and waterfalls to the cheers of Samango monkeys!

The 45km race is hoping to attract at least 200 riders and their families, the other races will be a bonus but no less important or fun.
