Luxury 2-Night Tented Village Available

The 2017 Varsity MTB Challenge, which takes place on 30 September – 1 October in Paarl, offers a 2-night luxury tented village for out-of-town riders who would like to camp at Nederburg for the 2-day stage race.

The tented package has been introduced at R2800 per team of two riders and it includes a luxury tent for Friday and Saturday evening as well as dinner on both evenings at Nederburg.

Riders can book the luxury tented accommodation package as an optional extra during the on-line entry process. The luxury tented package has proved very popular at our other stage races; hence we have decided to add it to the Varsity MTB experience as well as a plug-and-play option for out-of-town riders.

The Safari tents feature two comfortable single beds with mattresses, ¾ pure white 200 thread count white linen, soft duvets and pillows, bed side tables, electric lanterns, blankets, carpets and chairs and towels.

This means there is no need for riders to bring any linen or lights, and there is even a camp chair outside on which to enjoy the beautiful sunset over the Drakenstein Mountains!

The 2-day Varsity MTB Challenge is focussed on attracting as many alumni as possible to compete for their erstwhile universities in what is billed as South Africa’s “ultimate alumni challenge”.

All you have to do is saddle up and peddle hard...

Riders can now enjoy the finer comforts after a long day in the saddle. Tired legs and weary minds are rejuvenated with a well-deserved nights rest in a comfortable bed with fresh linen and fluffy pillows to invigorate you ahead of the next day’s challenge.
