Fedhealth MTB Challenge

 

 

 

We have moved venue – on the weekend of 16 & 17 September, the picturesque Boschendal Farm, between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, would have shrugged off its winter coat and once more be geared up to welcome fitness fanatics and families alike to the 2017 Fedhealth MTB Challenge, held in association with Stillwater Sports.

Over the course of two days, riders of all ages will have the opportunity to experience some sweet riding over the superb, flowing trails of this scenic wine farm and the beautiful Banhoek conservancy.

In addition, the occasion includes an array of activities to ensure a great family-style ‘breakaway from the everyday’. Boschendal is famous for their picnics (Make sure you book yours n advance), quality wines and wine tasting, massage zones, rider goodie-bags and giveaways for entrants, plus loads of lucky draws and prizes to be doled out on the day.

With all of this happening under sunny South African skies and amidst an unbeatable atmosphere, the 2017 Fedhealth MTB Challenge promises to once again be an affair to remember!
