Date: 5-7 April 2019
More than 200 mountain bikers will ride a three-day stage race in the heart of Gauteng. The third edition of the Glacier Cradle Traverse takes place from at Avianto Lifestyle Estate in Muldersdrift. With trails that are often described as Gauteng’s ‘best-kept secret’, riders will be given a truly unique experience of the area surrounding the Cradle of Humankind. The exclusive routes extend into Muldersdrift and adjacent estates and conservancies, with breathtaking views and even the possibility of game encounters. To enjoy this natural beauty a mere half an hour from Johannesburg is only part of the reason that this event has become a favourite for local adventure-seekers. Another major drawcard is the non-competitive atmosphere of the race – one that encourages riders to slow down and spend quality with loved ones. With their renowned sense of hospitality, Glacier by Sanlam will once again welcome participants to an unforgettable race village that also includes daily entertainment for children. A two-day and fun ride options are also available for those who cannot take a day off work. For more info, visit www.cradletraverse.co.za.
