The event venue is on the driving range of the Langebaan Country Estate which is situated in the picturesque village of Langebaan. As the route winds through the West Coast National Park, it takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery on the West Coast. The route closely hugs the shoreline of South Africa’s only saltwater lagoon as you pass through Strandveld vegetation before making your way across the peninsula that divides the Atlantic Ocean and the Langebaan Lagoon. Take time to appreciate the azure blue waters of this fantastic coastline as you pedal past landmarks such as Preekstoel, Kraalbaai, Geelbek and Schrywershoek. Be on the lookout for the many animals that roam the West Coast National Park, as this in itself makes it a very special ride. The rolling hills have interesting names such as Skunk Hill, Fanie se Kop and Seeberg and make for a challenging, yet enjoyable day out. The ride finishes at the top of Stumpnose Rock (affectionately known as Mamba Hill) with a breathtaking view of the lagoon as the backdrop.

All events begin at the golf driving range of the Langebaan Country Estate; situated in the picturesque town of Langebaan. All routes take place wholly within the Estate. The 18km, although more of an intermediate route, the start and finish venue is in close proximity to most areas of the beautiful route ensuring support. Langebaan Country Estate is fairly flat with a few rolling hills. The route for both races includes a few relatively tough climbs, which when completed, rewards one with beautiful panoramic views of the area, especially the lagoon. Be sure to enjoy the indigenous fauna and flora which abound in the Estate. The 5km route winds around the “Fox Trail” path and the 1km circuits the driving range.
