About

Cape Country Unplugged is a laid back, untimed, 5-day mountainbike Tour from Wildekrans Wine Estate at Botrivier to Wilderness.  The Tour is fully supported with luggage transport, mechanical backup, medical support, 3-meals a day and non-tented accommodation.  Well stocked waterpoints are provided en-route.  Limited free beer and wine are included in the package.

The Tour is suitable for mountain-, gravel or e-bikes and the route mainly follows quiet, lesser known gravel and farm backroads.  

 

The average daily distance is 90km with approximately 1000m of climbing.

A new addition for the 2021 Tour is a Lite version of the Cape Country Unplugged.  The Lite event makes provision for transport of riders on days 2-5 to the first waterpoint of the stage.  The daily distances for the Lite version are 59km, 67km, 72km, 75km and 73km respectively. 

Entries are limited for both the Full and Lite events.

Cape Country Full

This is the original route as is loved by our regulars.

Cape Country Lite

Our new route provides transport to the first water point each day to reduce the daily distance a rider has to cycle.

Not just a bike ride but spiritual journey often alone on wide open roads with awesome views and the only sounds being your breath and the birds. A life changing experience, all made possible by the care and special attention given to you by organisers who will feel like family afterwards. If you enter expect your life to never be the same again!

Wonderful organization – and the water points and An-Lie’s homemade treats are fantastic – a shot of Old Brown hits the spot after a cool morning’s start. Definitely an event to add to your winter calendar. This event has us returning year after year, we feel we have become part of the Unplugged family! Thank you Cape Country.

A fantastic multi-stage off-road event taking in some stunning routes, not all of which can be ridden by the public. The best 5 days on a mountain bike in the company of like-minded people, riding for the joy of it. This event both touches and gives back to the communities it passes through and sometimes emotions can’t be contained.
