Introduction

The Bestmed Forever Resort Badplaas Mountain bike race is taking place on 25 and 26 July 2015 at the Forever Resort Badplaas. This race is fast becoming one of the favourite events on the cycling calendar in Mpumalanga. Cyclists and their families, braving the harsh winter of the northern parts of South Africa, can take a well-deserved break and spend some quality time in the warm Mpumalanga region. The race takes place at the Forever Resort Badplaas in the Emanzana Nature Reserve at the foot of the Hlumulumu Mountains. The Resort offers facilities and entertainment for every member of the family.

Due to the safe and secure route of the mountain bike race, this event is ideally suited for all members of the family. Cyclists can enjoy their favourite sport whilst riding through the game reserve featuring a variety of antelope, wildebeest and more than 300 species of birds.

After a morning of riding, cyclists can relax painful muscles in the warm mineral springs swimming pools, or have themselves a relaxing massage or treatment at the Hydro Spa. Unwinding next to the warm outdoor swimming pool or taking leisurely walks on the tree walking trail and botanical gardens, are some options for those tired city-lodgers wanting some quite time. A game drive through the nature reserve is just what you need to get closer to nature and enjoy the wonders of our beautiful country.

The youngsters will be spoilt for choice with a vast number of activities, such as:

  • Super tube & Speed slide
