The Vines and Views SHORT route will start at the beautiful Idma@Kapel venue. This will lead to a major improvement in rider experience. The short route will start at 09:00 which means riders can still enjoy a lovely breakfast at the starting venue.
The short route will be a fast, untimed, non-technical 30km ride with 500m of climbing. The iconic Skaapkop climb will be included in the short route, meaning riders on the short route will also enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the Olifants River valley.
Also included in this ride will be the spectator point at Teubes Family Wines AS WELL as the new finale riding THROUGH the wine cellar at Namaqua Wines. This event is ideally suited for the weekend warrior looking for a fun day with friends.
Riders on the short route will enjoy splendid scenery on the banks of the Olifants River, previously reserved for the long ride only, while traversing the vineyards of Kapel for the first 10 km’s.
Riders might even be rewarded with the morning call of the African Fish Eagle! This event was carefully planned to maximise riders AND supporter experience.
