Newsletter – The joBerg2c Post – Festive Edition

Greetings to our riders all over South Africa and the world. We can officially say this is our biggest international year to date with 150 international entrants so far from 25 countries. It seems the ethos of this 900km, 9 day ride is catching on to those mountain bikers around the globe who are fit and who love riding enough to enjoy seeing a special part of the world on their bikes.

International flag to mark your territory

To all our international riders, please bring a flag to put on your tent and do something on your riding kit to let other riders know where you are from.

We will remind you again. Our aim is make joBerg2c a festive and really friendly event even if you are racing.
Also a reminder to our internationals, don’t leave your visa too late – please check the visa requirements especially if you are bringing kids over. Click here for more information.
