Steyn City has been announced as the host of this year’s Discovery 947 Ride Joburg MTB Ride and the Discovery 947 Ride Joburg Kids Ride, taking place on Saturday, 9 November and Sunday, 10 November.
The prestigious lifestyle resort will stage both events, offering existing and newly-built trails for participants to explore and tame on their bikes. There will also be a chillout zone where riders and their families can relax and unwind.
This is not the first time that Steyn City has played a role in the iconic cycling event. The resort has been part of it since 2014 when the 947 Cycle Challenge (as the event was known as) moved up the road to Riversands Commercial Park. In previous years, Steyn City also hosted a part of the 55km mountain bike route that gave cyclists a chance to experience the magnificent parklands trail that traverses the Jukskei River, as well as many beautiful cycle tracks that meander through the resort.
Steyn City is the ultimate destination for cyclists, offering extensive trails for on- and off-road riding set in an indigenous landscape. The resort is a true treasure for cyclists who seek a serious training route, without the concern of crime.
It’s not only the beauty of Steyn City that impresses. It’s convenient, too: the entire lifestyle resort has been designed to make it conducive for those making use of facilities like cycle trails. This means that, aside from the major traffic arterial, there are no busy roads to navigate and no congestion.
Added to this, the trails are virtually on each resident’s doorstep, so there’s no need to strap your bike to the roof and head off in search of a suitable route. What’s more, there’s something for everyone, from beginners and intermediate to advanced, from weekend warriors to race snakes.
