For such a long time paddlers were neglected in the Garden Route that they started doing other sports like MTB riding, kite surfing and went as far to start surfing! We have created an event to get the paddlers back into boats, but will start with a slow weaning process, by combining it with MTB riding and also the opportunity to do it in a team format. The birth of X Lakes (Summer).
The race will take part on the 17th of December 2012 (Public Holiday on the Monday). Please check out the website for more information and the route description in detail.
