General Info

Director's Welcome

We look forward to welcoming mountain bikers to the 2017 Herald VW Cycle Tour in Addo.

Mountain bikers can once again look forward to superb mountain biking routes, including some of the very best single track at Hayterdale Trails.

Each race distance is designed to cater for a different level of skill and fitness, from the relatively easy family rides up to the 80km Extreme, which will test even the most seasoned mountain biker.

Wishing you all the best for your preparation for the 2017 Herald VW Cycle Tour.
