Riders will start from two different venues depending on the distance they will be riding, most of the route will follow the railway lines taking you through Red Star Racetrack,  Devon and your final destination to a quaint little hamlet of Val, which is a bout 70km from Heidleberg in Gauteng and a stone throw away from Greylingstad on the road to Standerton. It’s one of the smallest and most beautiful towns in the Highveld and you get to experience the sunrise as you head towards your final destination.

This is a one way route and you will need transport back to Pretoria.

Support is suggested on this training ride to follow and meet up with you at every waterpoint, however if you do not have support to follow you then ensure you have someone to drop you off at the start and pick you up at the finish.

Note: this is not a race but you will receive boards,  or you may use your personalised Bouttime raceboard to be timed to earn your Vitality points.     

You may request your time at the finish if you curious about how you did, but timing is not official and will not go on the NTS (National Trail Seeding) system.
