6 Timed Stages

Don’t let racing ruin your vibe. Take on 6 sections that are timed and enjoy a gentle pedal for the rest of the time.

What?

Welcome to the untamed terrain of South Africa, where the thrill of Gravel Racing meets the relaxed atmosphere of Enduro Riding. Hammer it along some of the most iconic sections in the Western Cape. Venture into Oak Valley, Paul Cluver and up the infamous Hans se Kop Climb. The whole thing isn’t a race, you will get a wristband at registration which will be your timing chip on this Gravel / Enduro event. Enjoy a relaxed start and social liaison sections before you get to hammer it out for Stages of the whole route. Take on 6 timed GravDuro Stages throughout the day, making up a total timed distance of 60kms.

Setting off from Trails End Bike Hotel on the 26th of October 2024, this first-time Gravel / Enduro event will be run and led by the team from Red Cherry Events.

The route will use a combination of some of the most iconic farms and climbs in the Western Cape. Using Trails End Bike Hotel as a starting point, the first-ever GravDuro will head into Oak Valley, Paul Cluver and up the infamous Hans se Kop Climb. Don’t have the energy to tackle all the stages? There will be prizes at the end for riders who took on 6 or 4 stages, so you can bail out if the going gets too tough.

The Route will be a total distance of 106 kms, with 6 timed stages in between making up 60kms of the total 106kms. The liaison sections (the pieces between the stages) will be entirely GPS-based. Only the actual segments themselves will be marked, so you can go flat-out through the stage without having to worry about following the GPS.

The event will be most suited to Gravel Bikes and thus the terrain and the segments will be chosen with this in mind. No gravel bike? No problem! You can still take the event on, a Traditional MTB or E-Bike and there will be prizes for all the categories we have listed.
