COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Saturday Trail run

Trail Run starts at 14.00 and will follow the 10 km course.

There will be water tables on course.

 

Sunday 50 km Greytown Classic

The race starts in the valley at the Beehive and you can guess where you are going.  Some rolling farm roads warm up the legs nicely and straight into lots of single track.  A sharp climb up to Woolstone and the first welcoming water table.  The climbing continues through Masonite to open onto a vista of grassland overlooking the Muden Valley and a gem of a single track.

The second water table means you are on the way home, some pleasant downhills and a sharp climb to the last water table.  A pleasant meander through the forests with some flowing single track and you are back at the Beehive where a hot shower and cold beer awaits!

 

Sunday 25 km

This course has been designed bearing in mind that it has to cater for the needs of the mid-distance “racing snakes” as well as children and mountain-bikers who prefer a less strenuous and technical course.  Although it does include some single track this is open and flowing. A  balanced course that traverses croplands, plantations, open veld and sugar-cane lands,  the 25 km course will challenge riders who wish to ride it at speed yet serve to encourage less experienced mountain-bikers.

 

Sunday trail Run

Trail Run starts at 09.00 and will follow the 10 km course.

There will be water tables on course.

 

Saturday and Sunday 10 km

This will be ridden on Saturday afternoon and on Sunday morning.

This course takes riders under the Heiniespruit bridge and gently meanders along plantation and farm roads before turning at the Enfield homestead to turn for home.  Although a short section of single track has been included this is generously open and flowing.  Riders return to the Beehive venue and finish by riding over the specially constructed bridge.

 

Saturday and Sunday 3 km

This will be ridden on Saturday afternoon and on Sunday morning.

Aimed at the mountain-bikers of the future this course is very accessible to any cyclist as it is almost completely level.  For parents who wish to ride or walk with their children it is a scenic, circular route that follows the Heinespruit and returns along plantation roads to the Beehive venue where riders finish their course over the wooden bridge.
