Ride the Karoo presents a weekend experience where you will spend two nights at Dwarsvlei under the Karoo stars and be treated to a Karoo braai, fresh farm bread, condensedmilk coffee, koeksisters & craft beer. The Karoo and its people truly show in the food!


Ride The Karoo's 100 miler (168km) heads out towards Compassberg on a combination of smooth jeeptracks and district roads. Riders will gradually be going up in elevation followed by a downhill that will most definitely put a huge grin on the face as riders make their way down to the quaint village of Nieu Bethesda. Here they will be greeted by the third and main water point on the day. Here riders will be treated to ice cold, locally made ginger beer and numerous bites to fuel them for the second half of the ride. As riders head out of Nieu Bethesda to complete the rest of their ride, they enter the Sneeuberg & Bergplaas Nature Reserve where numerous wildlife like  eland, kudus, wildebeest, zebras and more can be seen. Riders will have 5 water points & 3 self help water stations to fuel up along the way.
