Innibos Stage Race

DATE: 22 – 24 June 2018

VENUE: Kavinga Guesthouse, Nelspruit, Mpumalanga

The Innibos MTB Stage race, is held as part of the Innibos Cycle Festival and Innibos National Arts Festival, in the beautiful Lowveld. This race enables you experience the best of the Lowveld, so bring the whole family. You can ride the stunning bushveld routes the week end before the Innibos Festival. Maybe get in a game drive or two in the Kruger National Park on the Monday & Tuesday, then enjoy the festivities of the Innibos National Arts Festival from the Wednesday.

This stage race is aimed at families and riders wanting to take the opportunity to make the most of their time in the Lowveld.

This is a not an exceptionally difficult race or too technically challenging, although being in the Lowveld it would does have a couple of nice climbs each day. The view is however always worth the effort once you get to the top. The idea behind the Innibos MTB Stage Race is fun for the whole family and is ideal with the sunny warm days, with little to no chance of any rain in these winter months.

The race starts and finishes at Kavinga Guesthouse each day, which heads out through some fast bushveld single track, sludge or tubeless tyres are definitely a recommendation on this race.

The perfect winter holiday destination.
