LOCATION> Greyton (Old Potters Brewhouse) to Hermanus (Hemel en Aarde Brewery), South Africa.

Greyton is a small town tucked away against the mountains in the Overberg of the Western Cape, a mere 1-hour drive by car to Hermanus. Hermanus is a small coastal fisherman’s town known for whale watching and weekend breakaways for families.

THE EVENT> Race day was Sunday 6th October 2019, from Greyton to the Brewery at Wine Village, near Hermanus. Cyclists set off at 08h00 on an 85km scenic route with 1400m of elevation ahead of them. There was the alternative option of a shorter 25km circular route which started at 08h15 and finished at the Old Potters Brewery in Greyton.

The vibe and energy on the day was contagious as the fun started early in the morning and continued throughout the day.
