Namaqualand MTB Tour
The Namaqualand tour starts in Springbok in the Northern Cape.
Riders meet on a Sunday afternoon at pre booked accommodation after a long drive. Springbok is 1 200km from Pretoria and almost 700km from Cape Town.
Dinner is provided where old friends greet and new ones are met .
Thus far the route has changed every year but the principle remains that riders will start cycling from Springbok and finish at Agama 7 days later.
