The Spring Festival MTB & Trail Classic Saturday 22 October 2022

Where: Avianto Estate, Muldersdrift

We are so excited to announce the launch of a brand new Mountain Bike and Trail event at Avianto Estate in the form of the Spring Festival MTB & Trail Classic on the outskirts of The Cradle of Humankind.
This forms part of a brand new festival taking place at the Avianto Estate. It’s called the Avianto Estate Spring Festival and it’s taking place on Saturday the 22nd of October 2022.

The Spring Festival MTB & Trail Classic - EXCITING NEW CHANGES

We met recently with the management team of the Festival, and they have suggested, that in line with the spirit of the festival we change a few things.

Owing to the spirit of the Festival, the ride will now ONLY be a fun and relaxed and fun 30km ride.

The Festival organisers want you to want to experience a Festival-Type event, and this will now be a non-technical ride for all.

As far as the Trail Run/ walk goes, you will now have a choice of a 5km or a 2.5km run/ walk and this will be at no cost. And you can even bring your dog along to enjoy the trails.

So…If you like to get out and ride, run, or walk in a truly beautiful environment, we present the Spring Festival MTB & Trail Classic – a fun MTB experience, and also offering Trail Running/ Walking routes that will showcase the best the area has to offer.

Bring your family. Bring your mates. Hit the trails and enjoy some of the Estate’s and surrounding areas many hidden gems – it’s all about the journey!

We welcome back the Avianto Trails, the Phambile Trails and some brand-new track along the riverside. This event is open to all and is carefully marshalled every step of the way with medical crew and logistical back up provided. This day is designed for riders, runners and walkers of all skills and fitness levels.

Starting in the morning, the Spring Festival MTB & Trail Classic will start and finish at the Avianto Estate Clubhouse where you can freshen up and get back to the more leisurely activities offered at the festival.

Once you have finished riding or running at the Spring Festival MTB & Trail Classic – join us at the Spring Festival at Avianto Estate.

This is where the party really starts.

Live acts such as Neon Dreams, Prime Circle, Karlien van Jaarsveld and Rubber Duc will be performing.

Tickets are normally R300, but when you enter, you can purchase tickets for you and your mates at just R225. (Tickets are limited to 10 per entrant)
