The event venue is on the driving range of the Langebaan Country Estate which is situated in the picturesque village of Langebaan. As the route winds through the West Coast National Park, it takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery on the West Coast. The route closely hugs the shoreline of South Africa’s only saltwater lagoon as you pass through Strandveld vegetation before making your way across the peninsula that divides the Atlantic Ocean and the Langebaan Lagoon.
Take time to appreciate the azure blue waters of this fantastic coastline as you pedal past landmarks such as Preekstoel, Kraalbaai, Geelbek and Schrywershoek. Be on the lookout for the many animals that roam the West Coast National Park, as this in itself makes it a very special ride.
The rolling hills have interesting names such as Skunk Hill, Fanie se Kop and Seeberg and make for a challenging, yet enjoyable day out. The ride finishes at the top of Stumpnose Rock (affectionately known as Mamba Hill) with a breathtaking view of the lagoon as the backdrop.
Cyclists for both events leave the venue and proceed toward the northern gate of the West Coast National Park. From there the event takes place exclusively within the confines of the National Park. For the duration of the race the Park will be closed to all traffic except official race vehicles. The deceptively hilly route follows the winding road around the lagoon. Beautiful scenery with possible animal sightings will add interest to your ride.
