2. Winterhoek Region – Tulbagh, Western Cape, South Africa

Host to the legendary Cape Epic MTB race in 2011, Tulbagh may be a small historic town, just an hour and a half from the foot of the glorious Table Mountain, but sleepy it is not.

With a large local biking community, the residents and visitors, who pour into the region from all over the world, waste no time in getting out into the mountain passes, and enjoying the incredible local riding tracks that are on offer.

The beautiful valley that is surrounded by no less than 3 glorious mountain ranges, offer an eclectic assortment of challenging and easy tracks. The summer months can be swelteringly hot, and the winter months see the mountains full of snow, so you will most definitely need your gloves to keep those hands warm.
