The MYSPAR MTB Classic takes place on the 1st Sunday in May every year in the majestic setting of route master & organiser, “Farmer Jacques Steenkamp’s” farm, Zuurbron, on the R330 between Humansdorp & Hankey.
2016 winner, Jason Meaton called it “A very entertainable ride with a bit of everything, views are beautiful, the course is well marked and the race well supported – I love it!!”
With no lack of choice, there is a tailor made mountain bike route catering to each individual’s skill level.
• 60km – A challenging course for the fit rider taking on farm roads, jeep &
single tracks and of course the famous floating bridge (with optional
• 40km – For the less technical mountain biker but still requires a decent level
• 20km – A non- technical 20km for the younger enthusiasts (and entry level
older ones) l
• 10km – Easy, fun ride for the whole family
A 10km Fun Farm Run/Walk is also on offer.
With all this choice, there’s bound to be an activity for THE WHOLE FAMILY.
Jumping castles, food stalls, coffee bar, face painting, sand art and cold craft beer are on offer to ensure that both participants & spectators enjoy the day. This year we are excited to add some fresh produce for sale from local farmers. The MYSPAR MTB is known for it’s amazing lucky draw prizes, tailor made routes with breath-taking views, beautiful venue, and of course the fantastic Zuurbron vibe.
The generosity of title sponsor, MYSPAR (since 2014) together with support from local Koukamma businesses ensure a top class event can be presented with Prize Money To Match. The increasing number of participants (502 in 2016) and spectators each year is testimony to what a fun day this is for the whole family and one not to be missed.
