The Western Cape is getting another first in MTB this weekend, because the inaugural Amarider 100 Miler is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 16th May.
This endurance event, which takes place over 160 km, will begin in Durbanville and end in Paarl. The Amarider 100 Miler will prove to be incredibly gruelling even for the most seasoned of cyclists. But hey, look at the bright side – you’ll go on a lovely tour of the Swartland and Cape Winelands while you sweat.
Riders will also have the opportunity of competing either as individuals (Solo) or as relay teams of 3 (Relay).
The organisation arranging this event is AMA Rider (The African Mountain Bike Association). They are a mountain bike advocacy organisation aimed at improving mountain bike opportunities on the African continent (Two thumbs up! Ricky loves you).
Entries for the event have already closed, but MTB Shorts thinks you should still head out and support this wonderful initiative.
