Here are 2 great reasons for the midnight start in November 2020.
The magnificent Groot Rivier Poort, which leads into the Antoniesberg Pass, is 94km into the journey.
This means that you exit the Karoo as the sun is rising and enter the extension to the Baviaanskloof in the early morning. With only 37km left of the journey (the last 20km being mostly a downhill run to Patensie), arrival for breakfast/brunch is perfectly timed.
Starting at Midnight and riding through the Karoo is a star studded experience. The Karoo at night takes on a whole new dimension: shooting stars, moonlit roads, animal calls – a thrilling new experience on your bike. Arrive before 11pm on Friday night, in the quaint Karoo town of Steytlerville, enjoy the strong coffee and vibe on the start line, jump on your bike at midnight and 129km later, breakfast will be served in Patensie .… No accommodation needed.
The Midnight Express package includes a great goodie bag, entertainment and drinks at Steytlerville, and breakfast/brunch in Patensie. The reputation of event specialists, Red Cherry Adventures, guarantees you a most incredible 129km MTB adventure.
