We are proud to be hosting the Baleia Wines Mountain Bike Challenge for the third consecutive year and it will take place on 8 September 2018 at the Baleia Wines winery just off the N2 outside Riversdale in the Western Cape (GPS Co-Ordinates: 34°06’36.0”S 21°15’18.3”E).

Choose from two distances (20km and 63km) and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the area on your bicycle.

The Adventure Trail Run will again give runners (and walkers) the opportunity to explore the Riversdale area on foot on the same day and participants can choose between two distances: a 6.5km and a 16.5km. The start and finish of the trail run will also be at Baleia Wines.
