Distances: 500 km
Difficulty: Extreme terrain with frequent steep hills and long sustained climb

Join us for the 3rd edition of our 7-day gravel adventure and explore the wilderness of the stunning Western Cape by bicycle. You’ll camp in a mixture of guest farms, game farms and bush camps along the 500km route and spend the week getting up close and personal with some African wildlife!

New for 2020, riders can now enter to “race” as an individual or a pair, or if you’d prefer to sit back and enjoy the adventure you can enter to “ride” and join small groups supported en route by the HotChillee Ride Captains. We’ve also added an additional night in 2021, meaning we finish in the stunning coastal town of Plettenberg Bay and host the Rainmaker Finishers Braai on the Friday night.
