Weekend adventures for mountain bikers

A series of MTB treats planned at De Hoop

A MTB getaway in a pristine wildlife destination. Sound good? Absolutely. Whether for a group of friends, a spoil for corporate clients or for those training for the Cape Epic, this escape promises to be fantastic.

It’s been put together by the De Hoop Collection, together with Overberg MTB Events, and the first one, in the De Hoop Vlei Nature Reserve,  is planned for June 4 to 6.

The weekend’s stay will include mountain bike riding, personal coaching by experienced athletes and coaches, as well as sports massaging by the industry’s leading therapists in the Western Cape.

Add to this a sensory experience of the outdoors, visits to the sandy dunes at Koppie Alleen, sunset nature drives, and dinner under the stars and it’s going to be a weekend to remember.

There’s a wide range of luxury accommodation, and various options are available to choose from, depending on requests and group sizes.

The De Hoop Melkkamer Manor House and Vlei Cottage provide a private and secluded setting of historical beauty and private chefs to cater to guests. There are also equipped cottages and Opstal houses which are all part of the accommodation close to the Fig Tree Restaurant.

Mountain bike rides will be approximately 35km to 60km distance per day, depending on the level of fitness, requirements, and choice of the groups.

The itinerary, which is subject to slight changes, includes sundowners and snacks, followed by a Potjie dinner on Friday night; a post-breakfast mountain bike outride, followed by lunch, massage options, and a fish braai for dinner on Saturday; an early morning breakfast, then cycle and outdoor picnic lunch, a nature drive, and dinner on Sunday; and breakfast before a 10am checkout on Monday.

There is a minimum of eight per group size for the fully inclusive cost of R6 525 a person for the three-day stay.
