Mall 2 Mast Mountain Biking Event in George
Mall 2 Mast is a new mountain biking event taking place on 1 June 2013. The Mall 2 Mast MTB Challenge is a tough 60km event accompanied by a 30km fun ride. The Mall 2 Mast is presented by the Garden Route Mall, organized by Chain Gang Events and the official event charity, FAMSA, will benefit as recipient of the entry fees.
30km Mountain Biking Event in George
The 30km Mountain Biking event is designed around the novice or “not so fit” rider who wants to complete a scenic route through the indigenous forest on the outskirts of George while taking in spectacular views of the Garden Route Dam. The route is out and back from the Garden Route Mall with a water point at the 15km mark.
60km Mall 2 Mast Mountain Bike Route
The 60km Mall 2 Mast mountain bike route mirrors the 30km route and then splits at the 20km mark where the challenging sections and ascent to the mast above George begins. The reward for the long climbs is the spectacular view over George and awesome single track riding. There are no technical sections on this route but some fast flowing single track will ensure the ride will be exhilarating. There is a prize for the first man and woman to the mast although the whole race will have to be completed to qualify.
Entries are open for both events at the Information Desk at the Garden Route Mall.

- 60km challenge is R100
