The 2014 edition of the Sappi Howick MTB Classic is set to roll out the challenging, traditional mountain-biking routes with the event’s slogan of ‘raw and unplugged mountain biking’ very much the focus.
Hosted by the Howick Mountain Bike Club, the AMArider accredited trail management system forms the stage upon which the popular event’s action unfolds and attract hundreds of MTB enthusiasts from throughout KwaZulu-Natal and abroad.
The 40km provides cyclists looking for a truly challenging ride with ‘single track nirvana’ and plenty of technical sections with the occasional jeep track or forest road stretch to ease any unlikely congestion.
The 20km route has a very similar feel to the 40km event, giving those unable to take on the longer distance a full experience of Howick’s renowned single track while the younger member of the family – and future mountain biking stars – can enjoy the 10km River Route which provides a challenging but manageable journey along the Umgeni River conservancy area.
