Mountain biking action on a  R1,5 million course this weekend

The Hollard Jozi Urban MTB Adventure will be taking place on Sunday, September 6, turning Johannesburg into the ultimate mountain biker’s playground. The course build is worth R1,5 million, with obstacles that include a 700m underground tunnel, storm drains, towering scaffolding bridges, a 120m floating bridge over Emmarentia and more.

Riders have two distance options: 22km or 54km of the best riding Joburg has to offer. Marks Park in Emmarentia is being transformed into the Hollard Adventure Weekend Race Day Village for the entire weekend. The SAB Gig Rig with a beer garden is ideal for that much needed cold beer after the race.

There will be an ABI family area with various food stalls to entertain the whole family. Not forgetting the very young ones in the family, there will be a fully stocked kiddies entertainment area with face painters, jumping castles, magic shows and more. For peace of mind, child minders will be on hand to ensure the little ones are all safe while having the time of their lives.

* The event will kick off at 6am.

Cost: R299 for the 22km; R399 for the 54km.
