Route Information

The ride begins with a gentle cycle along the eastern bank of the Olifants River, which is flanked by orchards. Just 20km out, you pass by the oldest orange tree in the southern hemisphere (planted 1777). A sharp right turn takes you into the heart of the Cederberg mountainscape, famous for its other-worldly rock formations and fynbos floral kingdom. Soon, you’ll reach the hiking and rock climbing mecca of the area, Algeria. From here, the route kicks up as you ascend the Uitkyk Pass, the summit of which provides spectacular views down the valley.

After the pass, you head down the next valley, past a few settlements and a wine farm – definitely worth a stop! After Kromrivier, there are some rock art paintings off to the right of Truijieskraal. From Mount Ceder olive farm to Op Die Berg on the banks of the Grootrivier, the route winds along the base of the Sneeuberg mountain range. The views across to Middelberg Peak, Meulenskop and the Elandkloof valley are something to behold. Take care down the fast-paced tarred road pass, which is a screamer all the way into Citrusdal and the finish point.
