RIDING EXPERIENCE

This Iconic tour will consist of four days of mountain biking, riding between 30 and 80 km each day, on mountainous jeep track, district roads and single-track in and around Dullstroom’s Dunkeld Equestrian Estate, our home for the four days – so you only unpack once! The routes are not technical but due to the altitude and distances, a reasonable level of fitness is required to complete what will be a truly remarkable four days of mountain biking. The event is planned such that we finish riding by lunchtime, leaving the afternoons for other pursuits like fly-fishing, golf, whiskey-tasting and bird-of-prey demonstrations; all within a few minutes’ drive or walk from our accommodation.

Furthermore, and what makes our Ride unique, is there is an after-dinner talk each night, delivered by one of our African Icons, all well-known sporting personalities, who have agreed not just to ride with us, but to share their life-stories and recipes for success after dinner and over a drink. Previous Icons in 2018 and 2019 have been the likes of Bruce Fordyce, Joel Stransky, Sanani Mangisa, Steve Waugh, Mark Boucher and Nick Bester. We have some superb talent lined up this year…!

Please look out for the route profiles and exact distances, which will be finalised and added to the website soon.
