The 2019 race was held in near torrential rain, making it one of the most memorable editions in the event’s 21-year history. 96 beautiful kilometres of mountain biking, what’s not to love about the Karoo to Coast? The old wagon trial pass out of Uniondale is one of the Karoo to Coast route’s many highlights. The Karoo to Coast route passes through four distinct biomes on its way from Uniondale to Knysna via the Prince Alfred’s Pass.

The 2020 date is set for South Africa’s favourite single day mountain bike event: 20 September. Heading into the 22nd edition the Karoo to Coast promises to be as challenging, rewarding and fun as ever – when 4 500 riders take on the route from Uniondale to Knysna.

The 96 kilometre long course, which crosses the old wagon trail out of Uniondale before joining the famous Prince Alfred’s Pass through the Outeniqua Mountains to Knysna, features 1 560 meters of climbing – but more importantly 2 300 meters of descending from the Karoo to the coast. The route snakes through four distinct biomes and offers stunning mountain vistas of a region seldom traversed by anyone but locals and adventure motorcyclists.

Entries to the 2020 race are open. For more information on the Karoo to Coast please visit www.karootocoast.com.
