Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse
If you’re looking to ride a unique MTB experience in 2019, then the Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse is the event for you. On 23 & 24 February, 2019, enter as a 2-man team (R1800.00 per team) or single rider (R1000.00) on this two-day event. Hosted by The Lions of Gansbaai, the L2L has been running for 18 years with all proceeds going to charity projects in the Southern Cape.
This unique race includes the following:
• Ride from Danger Point lighthouse (Gansbaai) to the southernmost tip of Africa, the L’ Agulhas lighthouse.
• Day 1 is 118km with 1200m ascent. The new (improved) route sees riders stick to scenic routes along the beach; through open plains; and through some wooded kloofs. (The sandy, rutted tracks of the past have been ditched for faster off-road tracks).
• After camping at Cape Agulhas for the Saturday evening (families welcome to join) riders tackle the shorter 93km return route back to Danger Point.
In addition to its own unique community and family-based flavour, The L2L is the ideal training ride for those who have entered endurance events later in the year. If you are training for the Cape Epic, this is the perfect event to fine tune your endurance over non-technical yet challenging terrain. Its also a step-up for those cyclists who want to tackle a bigger challenge than the one-day Karoo to Coast; or for cyclists looking to tackle ultra-long distance events like the Transbaviaans later in the year.
The L2L only has place for 250 riders though! So commit now; book online; and be able to have a great goal to train for over the holiday period. 23 February 2019 is just a few months away!
