Do you know about the Montagu Gravel & Grit 100 Miler?

Montagu 100 Miler on the 18th Nov 2023

The 2nd and last gravel race for the Klein Karoo Gravel Corridor Series is starting and finishing in the picturesque town of Montagu. There are two distances to choose from, either a round 100 miler or a round 100 kilometers.

By Makadas Adventures

Putting this route together has had many challenges and I thought my idea was going to be hard to pull off BUT I received such favor from landowners. Makadas Adventures, MATA & Africa Game Lodge presents a route….. that is truly out of Africa. Magical, special, unique, and diverse are words that come to mind.  This will be the first time that sections of private land will be opened to cyclists and only as a once-off for this event. Africa Game Lodge truly captures a bit of the essence of Africa.

There is enough time…

So train for this one as you do not want to be the one that misses out on this very special opportunity.  On both these routes you may encounter some game as Giraffe, Gemsbuck, Eland, Kudu, Zebra, and Springbuck might be seen.
