[part title=”Karoo to the Coast – South Africa”]
When: September 20 2014
Where: Knysa, South Africa
The Karoo to the Coast race is a 100km thrash through glorious South African surroundings as you and the rest of the field race from high altitude down to sea level on the country’s coast. The first 15km is one of the most testing sections open to the public as it follows the Ou Wapad trails which are in terrible condition.
After tackling the Outeniqua Mountains the race drops down into Knysa and heavy forests that rewards skilled bike handlers. All proceeds from the race go towards the Lions Club International SightFirst fund which aims to restore sight to some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
