The Ladismith Cheese 7weekspoort MTB Challenge, in the spectacular landscape of the title town, and its neighbouring missionary villages in the Klein Karoo, is a real classic. In the beginning there were 190 entries but the word is out and now, every October, they flock in from all sides of the Western and Southern Cape. Catering for families and different levels of expertise, there are well over a thousand riders who enter for the generous spread of three perfectly balanced routes and, operating under the Dryland organisational banner, there is also the guarantee of flawless logistics and pampering comforts.
