  HOW IT WORKS  
 

The 2018 Auric Auto BMW Ride The Vines MTB series will be a series of 6 MTB events for the whole family that will take place on 6 different wine farms in and around the picturesque Paarl region. 

With the success of our Run The Vines Trail Run Series we decided to host a series of MTB Event for our MTB riders on the same format as our Trail Run events.

The aim of our events is to provide a fun day out for the whole family with a route for the more serious rider as well as the novice that just want to have a nice day out with family and friends. All events will have a 10km and a 30km to 40km route depending on the terrain at the farm.

All our events will have live music, a safe children's playing area under supervision with free jumping castles and face paints for the kids, a secure bike park and specials on food and wine for all to enjoy.

Please join our Facebook page for updated info of our events.

  • Unique Ride The Vines T-shirt at 1st event.
  • A magnum bottle of wine depicting the series at the awards function after the series.

Centuries ago a desire to explore exotic products and tastes would have meant waiting for the seasonal return of the traders waging the Spice Route. Today explorers of the finer things in life can set off on a journey of discovery simply by visiting the aptly named Spice Route Destination in Paarl. 

An experience unique to the wine and hospitality industry, Spice Route Destination is a collaboration of artisans that showcase their produce and share their specialised knowledge, both with the public and with each other. The result is a diverse and extensive offering infused with a passion for authenticity and craftsmanship.

Riders will also ride on the newly build trails that is built, maintained and managed by Hero Adventures. They were kind enough to give us a discounted rate to use the trails and therefore a R20 increase in the entry fee.
