Saturday the 28th of September
Stage 1 will commence on Saturday the 28th of September, and this will be a distance of 65km. Here there will be a good mix of dirt road, jeep track and single track, and some technical ascents and descents. Please note that this is a fairly tough stage, and we do advise you to be reasonably fit.

After your race, you will have the chance to freshen up, and enjoy the afternoon with a few cold ones, or order something tasty from The Cog & Sprocket. 

Sunday the 29th of September
Stage 2 will commence on the Sunday the 29th of September, and will be a distance of 50km, again offering a good mix of all that makes mountain biking the sport that it is.
We also have a special 25km route for the younger and “not-so-fit” riders.

Once you have finished, you will have the chance to freshen up, grab something to eat and drink before the final prize giving along with some fun lucky draw prizes.

Of course, after all the excitement, you will also can enjoy your favourite liquid refreshment at the Cog & Sprocket.

The Blossom Applewhite Memorial Ride – Sunday the 29th of September
In September 2018, a good friend and loyal support of The Leverage Corporation rides, Mike “Blossom” Applewhite suffered a sudden heart attack and died.
In memory of Bloss, we introduced in 2018, the Blossom Memorial Ride. Mike was a passionate supporter of the Bara Burns Unit. And so too we have adopted the Bara Burns Unit as our preferred Bloss Charity.

If you enter on the Sunday, R50 from your entry will go to the Bara Burns Unit. They will also be in attendance on the Sunday, so should you wish to pledge more to the unit, you will be able to chat to them directly.

Mountain Bike Start Times
The Cool Ideas Magalies Adventure will start at 08.00 on Saturday and Sunday (all riders will start together)
The riders of the Mini Magalies – Sunday only - will start at 08.15

This is a Pre-Entry Event and entries will close on Sunday the 8th of September. Entries are limited, so we suggest that you go online today and reserve your place.

After online entries close, cyclists will only be able to do a “Late entry” at rider registration on Thursday 26th September and you will not qualify for a “goodie bag”. Cash is required for late entries.
