The idea with this recce: to get back into the “swing” of mountain bike events, getting new land owners onboard and giving them the opportunity to get a feel for the event we planning for 2021. We have chosen incredible trails for this recce and we promise that you won’t stop smiling soon, age old jeep tracks and animal tracks that we have just cleared of rocks and overgrown bushes, the idea is not to disturb the environment too much. Cost of this recce will be kept at minimum (cost), you will pay for camping, conservation fee and land access plus water point goodies, in return we need your honest feedback. This event is technical but you can ride it….it is not your average long distance open gravel road type event…but that is what Makadas is known for…real mountain biking!

Weekend of 23 October Hannele Steyn Kotze and friends plus the Oakpics team came out to help us with promotional images for next year’s event.  Images were loaded onto Facebook but also follow link below to see some of the amazing photography done by Oakpics.  Soon we should have a drone video available of the weekend to really give a bird’s eye view.
