Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!
In Memory of Gerhard Huiskens
My best friend, Gerhard Huiskens, was a very well-known mountain biker in the Cape Town region. Because of him, there many single tracks for future mountain bikers to ride. Sadly, Gerhard Huiskens passed away last year leaving a big void in many hearts.
This year, Apple Blossom Mountain Bike Ride will be honouring Gerhard's involvement in cycling by incorporating one of Gerhard favourite single tracks that he built for this event.
Distances range from 10 km to 60 km, with riders enjoying magical single track on both the long courses with some tough climbs, speedy descents and of course awesome scenery of vineyards, mountains and orchards festooned with apple blossom. 'Trail Ends' a mountain biking hotel, will be the start and finish to this event.
