No other mountain bike race in South Africa can compete with the scenic and challenging routes of the Akkedis – from bushveld to indigenous forests to the top of the Soutpansberg, this is truly a magnificent experience.

Start at Hanglip KLF office with a circle route towards the town of Louis Trichardt/Makhado, making a turn through the plantations of Komatiland Forests, riding in the shadow of Hanglip, on the ridge of the mountain, past the Mpefu Village and back to the strating area – definitely not for the faint hearted.
