ACCOMMODATION

The Old Mutual joBerg2c provides a fully-supported race with one tent per team (or per solo rider) plus three meals at each venue.

However, we know that some will make use of the many B&B’s along the way. If you do decide to plan some of your own logistics, please understand we are unable to cater for supporters in the race villages for obvious reasons.

Below is a list of B&Bs for you to contact. Note the following:

  • The Old Mutual joBerg2c does not take any responsibility for the quality of the B&Bs
  • You must arrange your own transport to and form the B&B’s.
