The Marico Mountain Bike Classic will take place this Saturday, 4 August 2012. The event will once again start at the Bosman Feesterrein and will follow the same route as last year.

Groot Marico is one of the poorest communities in South Africa. All monies will go towards community upliftment and empowerment. Some of the money raised from previous races has been used towards a care-centre for pre-school children.  Another project, which was made possible because of the funds raised, was obtaining much-needed wheelchairs.

Four distances of 23, 41, 51, and 61 km's on dirt, jeep and single track including an extreme technical terrain with lots of loose rock and shale with one portage of 200m.  Total ascent is about 1400km. The 51 km distance promise to give an added thrill of a technical downhill, three additional water crossings and another technical uphill, while eliminating the steep portage out of Doringkloof. The organisers believe that this route will add a lot of value to the riders who hated the very tough and technical section up and down Doringkloof. This distance will be rideable for the technically skilled and fit mountain biker. The entry fee will be same as the 61km route. race fees from R50 - R150.

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to be part of this exciting mountain bike race. Bring the whole family along for a day out in the country in this small village almost forgotten by time but kept alive through the colourful stories by Herman Charles Bosman. Food and refreshment will be on sale.

Your support will help the Rustenburg Rotarians to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate than yourselves.
