    The route starts and finishes inside the Carnival City outside entertainment area, west of the Casino.

    Dubbed “the Race“, this route is suitable for all levels of rider, but with about 380m of elevation gain, this route is deceivingly tougher than it looks on paper. With a mix of single track, jeep track, district road, gentle gradients as well as some short punchy climbs, this is more than just a dirt-roadie race.

    3 Water points at 15Km, 33Km and 52Km, plus recovery drinks at the finish line;
    Roaming bike mechanics, to assist with basic bike repairs.

    Dubbed the “Fun ride“, the event caters for the beginner to mid-level rider wanting to enjoy a mix of off-road terrains, i.e. jeep track, district road, some single track, minimal amounts of tar road and about 191m of elevation gain. Following the same route as the 60Km until the 18Km, before riding the final 16Km of the 60Km route. There is ample space for the 60Km riders to pass, but riders on this event are requested to keep left wherever possible.
