      Hi Bryan, this is in the Garden Route (Western Province) I’ve emailed you as their are quite a few riders from other provinces that are in the area during the December holidays. Regards. Juan

    What is the total climb?
    Is there a route profile?
    How many waterpoints and what is available at each?

      Hi Eugene,
      Is this for the Road or MTB bike race?
      Regards

    Hi Bryan/Juan, it seems obvious to us who live nearby, but perhaps not so to others: The name “Hartenbos” refers to the town where the race takes place. Just east of Mossel Bay.

      Hi Roger,
      I do not have the 60km Road Route Map. I will ask the organizer to send me one.
      Regards
      Juan
