OR You can hammer it with the racing snakes. Get technical with your equipment and plan your strategy of attack in infinite detail. 

Whatever gets you going, come and join us for a great weekend in the Karoo.

Medio Fondo

Exact Measurements: 54.2km and 412 metres of ascent.
A flat fast route an average rider will easily complete in 2.5 hours.

The route is a Great Karoo experience, first heading out to the east of Prince Albert over some farm lands a combination of gravel road and remote farm track.
It then re-enters the town for a little exploration and then heads out west on a gentle downward sloping, remote gravel road with spectacular views of the Swartberg mountain range and the Groot Karoo basin. At 29km there is a waterstop before turning left onto the Vrisgewaagd farm. Here you will see large scale farming in almost desert-like conditions, and you will be amazed at what a little water and hard work can do in an otherwise barren landscape.

The farm route takes you back into the Swartberg foothills and  connects with the Weltevrede road which meanders back into town through some stunning scenery. There is another water-stop at the 43 km mark before finishing 11.5km further on.
