ACCOMMODATION

The Old Mutual joBerg2c provides a fully-supported race and amazing race villages. You’ll have your own tent if you’re riding solo, or you’ll share with your team mate. All you need to bring is a pillow and a sleeping bag.

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.

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.
