Stage 4: Greyton - Elgin

Thursday, 23 March 2017

Overview

112km, 2150m climbing

The transition between two of the Western Cape’s most sought after holiday getaways takes riders on many ups and downs, and a burst of singletrack. It is rolling hills from the moment you leave Greyton and riders will approach one particular climb with apprehension: it’s called Pumping Legs for good reason, and as you approach it seems like the road heads up straight into the sky. Later they will cut through the Klipheuwel-Dassiefontein Wind Energy Facility near Caledon, where they can marvel at the 100m high wind turbines with their 58m blades. On the way to the new race village at Oak Valley they will head up the old Houw Hoek Pass (constructed in 1904 and also known as the River Pass because it follows the course of the Jakkals River).
