SA Gravel Events

Gravel cycling, racing and or touring in South Africa is becoming more and more Popular. The principle of “Gravel Riding” is to maximize gravel roads and minimizing the use of tar roads. The weapon of choice could be a Gravel Bike, a CycleCross Bike or a Mountain Bike, the decision remains yours!

We focus on the three event categories that one could consider according to Gravel and Tour:

   1.) The 100 Miler  type rides & races (80km to 160km)

   2.) The Endurance type rides & races (160km to 550km) 

   3.)The Ultra Endurance types rides and races (550km to 2,400km)

During these testing Covid Times event dates move frequently and we will try to update as regular as we can. We will also add the web pages to these events in order for you to get redirected to the Event Organisers directly.
