For those seeking a little adventure, Ceres has you covered and here, you can be adventurous. 

The best way to enjoy the stunning mountain landscapes and valleys that make this part of South Africa so unique, is by immersing one’s self in its splendid outdoors.  From zip sliding over breath-taking rock formations, abseiling, ‘kloofing’ or ice climbing at the magnificent Matroosberg, riding the tough, exhilarating Tankwa Trek MTB or walk the Tankwa Camino – there is an adventure for everyone. Ceres also boats a stunning 9-hole golf course that is ranked as one of the best in South Africa.

Mountain Biking


The Momentum Medical Scheme Tankwa Trek presented by Biogen is truly a ride like no other. The iconic four-stage race takes place from 4-7 February 2021 as one of the first UCI events of the season. With breathtaking trails through the Bokkeveld and winding routes in the Witzenburg area, this race features some of the most unique scenery South Africa has to offer. This region renowned for its unforgiving summers and harsh winters, routes through rocky outcrops and climbs steeper than the imagination can fathom! Some trails are hand-built and smoothly sculpted, while others rough and loose – but all reward the adventurous at heart. Riders are not only treated to tough yet exhilarating riding, but also get to enjoy true ‘Karoo hospitality’ with a world-class race at Kaleo Guest Farm.

Join us this summer and experience the ride of a lifetime!

2021 Absa Cape Epic (21 – 28 March)

The 2021 Absa Cape Epic will visit the same towns and follow, largely, the same route that was laid out for 2020; riders can, however, look forward to a few never-before-seen introductions that are sure to excite even the most seasoned mountain bikers. We are incredibly grateful to the more than 100 landowners and our host towns and venues that have already confirmed their support for next year.

The health and safety of riders, volunteers and staff and host communities will always be a priority in the execution of delivering the event. To comply with COVID-19 restrictions on mass participation events, the race will implement onsite event safety and precautionary measures and guidelines for event staff and volunteers at all race venue locations.
