2018 Liberty Winelands Encounter
13 APRIL - 15 APRIL 2018
3 STAGES - 160KM JOURNEY
The 2018 Liberty Winelands Encounter has been reshaped to access some incredible new riding terrain as well as spectacular host venues while also easing rider logistics by overnighting at the same venue for the Friday and Saturday evenings following stages 1 and 2.
The Winelands Encounter takes place over three stages from 13-15 April 2018, linking Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl together in a wonderful 150km 3-day tapestry of trails in the heart of the Cape Winelands.
The majestic Le Franschhoek Hotel will play host to the event for two evenings following the first and second stages while the event also boasts impressive new grand depart and finish venues.
In a big coup for the event, Le Franschoek Hotel is supporting the event to such an extent that the organisers will be accommodation all riders who book the luxury tented package in the hotel itself!
The organisation has booked out the entire hotel.
After stage 3 we will bring the curtain down on proceedings at the beautiful Nederburg Wine Estate in Paarl.
The Cape Winelands offers some of the best mountain-biking terrain in the world; surrounded by beautiful mountains and historical towns, vineyards, orchards, wineries, luxury accommodation and the finest culinary experiences money can buy.
It’s a MTB Encounter where riders are treated as VIP's and where they will have access to wonderful hospitality.
Spouses are also be able to book all meals with their riding counterparts, which creates a very unique and family orientated environment at meals and presentations.
