Avior 2014 Mountain Bike Event

2014 Mountain Bike Event

On Saturday, 18 October 2014 Avior hosted our inaugural mountain bike event at Muratie Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. It was a fun family day out featuring both a 17km and 30km single track designed by Meurant from Dirtopia. For the younger riders there was a 7km track and lots of entertainment that included jumping castles and face painting.


The 30km track was demanding for experienced riders, while the 17km offered an enjoyable challenge for the first timers. The venue provided the perfect backdrop with it’s 360 degree views and complimented by incredible weather on the day.

It was great to meet the families of the people we interact with frequently and see everyone get involved and just have a fun time. The food included a spit braai for the adults and burgers for the kids. Afterwards a prize giving ceremony was held recognising the winners of each of the challenges. Winners included:
30km Race: Joachim Kotze (and Gavin Wood) | Tracey Young (full results)
