Knysna Cycle Tour MTB

The Knysna Cycle Tour MTB events have become bucket list events for cyclists worldwide because of the beautiful and challenging routes, and include access to sections of privately owned property that are normally closed to the public.

You will ride through sections of the Knysna Forest and scenic farmland areas, and be exposed to the beauty of the natural fauna and flora of the exquisite Garden Route, while testing your skills to the maximum.

Age limits have been adjusted to ensure that fun riders have the maximum amount of FUN.

Last year we introduced a 30 km Electric bike route, the first E-bike event in the country, which was a great success, as well as the new route for the 15 km race, called the Ashes Fun Ride in memory of the Knysna fires. Both routes are back on the schedule for this year!

There will be prizes for fun riders and plenty of pre- and post-race activities over the weekend.
