KKK MTB Tour
In 2019 the 17 th annual KKK Tour will start and finish in George at the venue that we used as a start and finish venue since 2015.
The Tour covers 500km through indigenous forests, crossing the Outeniqua and Swartberg mountains twice, covers 12 passes and a few poorts.
The route is non-technical using graded dirt roads with breathtaking scenery, excellent accommodation, good food and even better company.
Riders arrive on Saturday 5 October to renew friendships and meet new people. Unexpectedly, everyone is heard telling everyone how little they have trained.
EVERY RIDER WILL RECEIVE A CYCLING SHIRT WHICH IS A ONCE OFF. THIS IS INCLUDED IN THE TOUR FEE .
Once the tour is fully booked an email will be sent to all regarding the cycling shirt and a sizing chart will be provided .
For the last number of years we did the route anti clockwise , in 2019 we are going to do it clockwise.
The Tour fee includes accommodation and dinner for Saturday 5 Oct .
Transport from George Airport can be arrangend and those arriving with vehicles may leave those safely at the hotel for the duration of the Tour .
