‘Tread Lightly’ Ladies MTB race kicks off at Backsberg this Mother’s Day weekend

Calling all ladies! The Pedal Power Association’s fabulous all-female MTB race ‘Tread Lightly’ returns to Backsberg on Saturday, 12 May 2018. There will be three routes to choose from – 32 km, 15 km and 4 km – catering from beginners to adventure seekers and everyone in-between (dads are welcome to enter the 4 km route with their youngsters).

Entrance fees are R180 for 32 km, R140 for 15 km and R70 for 4 km (PPA members receive a R20 discount) and can be obtained via http://www.pedalpower.org.za/ or by emailing rozanne@pedalpower.org.za.

As the race takes place over Mother’s Day weekend, participants can expect some special treats and – whether racing or not – all are welcome to spend the day at Backsberg; wine-tasting, lunching and enjoying the festivities. A fantastic, three-course Mother’s Day lunch will be taking place at Backsberg on Sunday, 13 May for those who wish to make a whole weekend out of this special occasion. Mother’s Day Lunch will be served from 12h00 on Sunday, 13 May and costs R300 per person or R100 for children under the age of twelve. Children below the age of five years may join free of charge.

We look forward to a weekend of outdoor activity, gourmet feasting and of course, celebrating the leading ladies in our lives.
