The Details

Bike Fest Paarl promises to be a great weekend out in the Winelands! Not only will the picturesque Rhebokskloof Wine Estate play host to the South African XCM National Championships, it will also host the Bike Fest Paarl Expo.

With more than 10 races across a variety of distances (all E-bike friendly), you are guaranteed to find a race to pique your interest. Short course racing for the kids take place on Friday afternoon with the marathon and half-marathon champs taking place on Saturday. Sunday sees the rest of the field take on each other in the shorter distances.

The racing, however, is not the only action on the farm. The Expo will play host to stalls for many of South Africa’s leading brands while a demo test track will make it possible to test ride that bicycle you have always wanted. Food vendors will provide fare to the foodies amongst us while a kids play area will ensure mom and dad can have some downtime. Various tastings will also be offer for those who enjoy exploring new options.
