09 Apr Langebaan Lagoon Festival MTB funride
This new MTB funride forms part of the festival activities of the Langebaan Lagoon Festival over the weekend from 19 to 21 April 2012. This is a fun event for the family with two MTB routes:36km for the more serious rider and 13km for Moms/Dads and children who just want to enjoy cycling. Lovely beach scenery, including a 2km beach ride.
Most of the routes take place on easy gravel roads and jeep/tweespoor. The 36km does have a few surprises with a few solid climbs but is not technical and is aimed at the intermediate MTB rider.
The route will start in the Country Club Golf Estate and will take the riders through the estate whereafter participants will cycle through Langebaan town and onto the beach at the Lagoon. Riders will have the opportunity to ride on the Beach Front for 2km and enjoy the beautiful scenery. There will be a water point on the beach.
On the way back to the Country Club, participants first have to deal with the “Black Mamba hill” which will be a tough climb, whereafter the riders will make their way back to the estate via jeep tracks.
When participants enter the country club again, they will do a last loop and another solid climb in the Country Club mainly on fast compacted roads in the estate and will thereafter make their way to the finish.
The 13km will be one loop in the Golf Estate primarily on fast compacted routes with one solid climb and downhill. While non-technical, this route will also be a challenge for the fun riders and beginners.
At the finish, refreshments will be offered and the lucky draw promises a good surprise of fun and prizes on offer. We also encourage participants and their families to relax for a while afterwards at the Country Clubhouse overseeing the beautiful Golf course.
