Gravel & Grape Adventure 2-day
The fourth annual Gravel & Grape Adventure 2-day is taking place from 5-6 May 2018.
The Gravel & Grape Adventure is two day mountain bike challenge that covers 65km of cycling over the course of its two stages.
Day 1 will cover 35km and 350m of climbing, while Day 2 is a 30km route with a 640m of climbing.
The race is also a clover leaf format, with each day starting and ending at ATKV Goudini Spa. The Gravel & Grape Adventure is a team event. Entries are for teams of two in two different categories: junior and open.
The junior category is for both team members between the ages of 16 and 18 years, while the open category can be a son/daughter, husband/wife, daughter/father team or any two adults who would like to experience their first stage race.
The routes will follow the same trail as the Gravel & Grape Extreme, so while the days and distances are shorter, you’ll still be riding on the same terrain as the main event. Participants will have the opportunity to enjoy a good variety of singletrack, climbs and jeep track.
Gravel & Grape is a true family experience, which is why we have based our race village at the hot water resort, ATKV Goudini Spa. By including a Gravel & Grape Adventure alongside the Extreme, we can truly cater for the whole family as this opens the race up to school children, parents, newbies or those looking for a new challenge.
The base for the event will be the ATKV Goudini Spa.
Day 1 will cover 35km and 350m of climbing, while Day 2 is a 30km route with a 680m of climbing.
