Jacaranda FM and Tracker’s “Off the Beat ‘n Track” is Gauteng’s biggest day of mountain biking and music for the whole family. The event will return to the Big Red Barn in Irene, and features routes for tiny tots, intermediate, advanced and competitive riders. Kids aged 2-13 years can choose from the 1.2km, 5km and the 10km riding distances (minimum age restrictions apply). Riders 14 years and up can choose the 25km riding distance and the advanced riders, 16 years and older, can enter the 50km race which is a timed and seeded event, sanctioned by the Cycling South Africa Governing Body. To ensure the safety of riders, a strict “no helmet, no ride” policy will apply. Once the ride is done, participants and families can enjoy top-class performances at the music festival from three of SA’s favourite live acts, namely Rubber Duc, Lloyd Cele and DJ Jazzy D. While the music plays there’ll be Acrobranch for all ages, a designated kids’ area and an array of food trucks. For more information, visit offthebeatntrack.co.za.
