The Routes have been carefully chosen to allow you to enjoy your qualifier and set you up for a good time as the highest point is only 30 m above sea level. Fast and scenic does not always go together but here it does. Take a tour of Knysna that hugs the water for all but 2.4 km of the entire route.
