The essence of Karoo Mountain Bike Tours is as the name suggests – to tour. That’s not to say this is for non-riders! We’re targeting mountain bikers with some experience looking to spend quality time on the bike and able to cover 40 - 60 km (25 – 37 miles) per day.
The tour option ( for now! ) is a 2 night stay with 3 days of different routes and rides. We don’t race!
It’s a one-stop experience where we ride each day and sleep in the same bed every night ( that’s cool! )
It is a time for reflection, introspection, exploration, exhilaration...
Enjoy the scenery, take in the quiet (other than the spinning of the wheels and the crunch of tires on dirt), capture memories, ride on roads seldom traveled, gain exclusive riding access to the 4500 hectare Chandelier Game Reserve with some 122 km ( 76 miles ) of jeep track and summit and descend the magnificent Swartberg Pass into the quaint little town of Prins Albert for brunch/lunch. We are spoilt for choice...
The small group of 8 cyclists means individualized attention. The mountain bikes are Momsen ( proudly South African… and Inspired By The Mountain! )
The weather is GREAT with an average of 300 days a year of sunshine ( cool hey! )
The summers can be HOT ( very hot ! ) - so we ride in the mornings and again in the evenings. Expect gorgeous sunrises and beautiful sunsets.
The winter mornings and evenings can be fresh (quite fresh!) – so we ride after breakfast ! ( very civilized…)
A back-up vehicle and trailer for transporting bikes ensures peace of mind and a close at hand refreshment
If “glamping” is luxury camping , then this is “glycling” !!!
