Introduction

The Lowveld Tour from 9 to 12 August 2018 will take place in Swadini this year.   Traditionally the Tour took place around Graskop, Mpumalanga, but due to unsafe road conditions in that area, the event was moved to a different venue.  The new routes will provide safe roads and a completely new challenge to the loyal cyclists that part-take in the Lowveld Tour every year.  It will also offer new-comers the opportunity to explore new routes in a safe and controlled environment.
The main feature of this Tour is stage 2, when cyclists will face the route from Swadini towards Graskop, leading through the Abel Erasmus Pass and JG Strijdom Tunnel.  This landmark is the link between the game reserves of Limpopo and the spectacular Blyde River Canyon of Mpumalanga, giving cyclists the opportunity to travel on the actual route used by the gold rush pioneers in the late 1800's.  Be warned though, this route is not for the feint-hearted,

The warm water swimming pool at Swadini, a Forever Resort will welcome riders to relax in after a hard days' cycling; perfect for the cold winter.

Apart from the accommodation at Swadini and Blyde Canyon Forever Resorts, there are a number of guest houses in the area which will suit your accommodation requirements. All stages will start and finish at Swadini, a Forever Resort.

The following categories for participation will be available:

  • Elite, U/23 & Junior Men
  • Vets Men 30+, 40+ & 50+
  • U/17 & Open category
