  • W2W Founder’s Ride at Beaumont Wines

    Come and join us to experience the magic of the Beaumont & Wildekrans MTB trails! This ride is the ideal opportunity to get serious with your 2022 FNB W2W training.

    The route is approximately 45km and covers the MTB trails on Beaumont and Wildekrans in Botriver. It is a great mix of gravel and single track, using some of the 2022 FNB W2W route, some of the initial Pioneer’s Ride in 2009 and some new surprise additions! It is a magical ride. This is the first year that the FNB W2W trail will bypass Botriver town and come directly into Beaumont from the historic Kat Pass, along the Jakkels river.

    The Founders Ride is aimed at 2022 FNB W2W entrants, but you are welcome to bring family and friends along to ride or to join for lunch of a mouth-watering burger, glass of wine and a delicious coffee at the Deli restaurant at Beaumont Wines.


    Ticket includes MTB ride, glass of wine, gourmet burger & coffee.
  • Chenin Safari

    This winter, the Chenin Blanc Association is celebrating what makes the Cape winelands so special – Chenin Blanc and being outdoors! We challenge all mountain bikers to see how many Chenin Safari stops they can visit during the six-week period. Should you choose to accept this challenge, you will earn yourself a designer cycling shirt and stand a chance to win fabulous prizes.

    We are partnering with the Wine Lands Cycling Club, the Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy, Overberg and the Franschhoek Wine Valley to bring you four safari loops to ride plus two Chenin destinations worthy of exploring: Perdeberg Wines in Paarl and Van Loveren Family Wines in Robertson.

    We will kick off the six-week Chenin Safari on 18 June 2022 with a fun ride hosted by the Wine Lands Cycling Club, ending at Ken Forrester Wines with a Chenin festival that will include brunch and a selection of Chenins to taste.  The fun ride will have both a 20km and 40 km option.

    Our six-week celebration of all things Chenin will conclude on 30 July (weather permitting) with a fun ride in the Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy.  The 120km MTB trail network across farm roads, jeep tracks and numerous single tracks through Renosterveld fynbos offers spectacular views. While never too technical, there are challenging climbs and a variety of distances on offer for riders of all fitness levels.

    How it works:

    • Participants must register and pay R200 to sign up for the Chenin Safari. The registration fee includes the cycling permit for the fun ride and entrance to the Chenin festival on 18 June.
    • During the six-week period, the Chenin Safari participants must visit the participating wineries and take a photo at the tasting venues.
    • For the challenge, participants have six weeks to visit at least six Chenin Safari stops and upload a photo of their visit, tagging @cheninblancsa, @the_winery_name, #DrinkChenin and #CheninSafari.
    • If you complete the challenge, you earn a free #DrinkChenin cycling shirt which will carry the logo of the participating winery you selected when signing up.
    • Everyone who completes six Chenin Safari stops will earn their free #DrinkChenin cycling shirt.
    • Everyone who visits more than six Chenin Safari tops will also stand a chance to win fantastic prizes.
