THE RUN


Starting in Pietermaritzburg the Race to Rhodes follows the route commonly taken by Trappist Monks as they headed into the area previously known as No-man's Land. The ride takes you into East Griqualand and then across the Maloti Drakensberg Mountains to the village of Rhodes. The route is almost exclusively dirt road and dirt track and contains extensive sections of single track and cattle-track. It takes in interesting countryside that is rich in history and culture.




Sisonke From Pietermaritzburg through Byrne, Hella Hella, Centocow, Ntsikeni and Swartberg to Little Umzimvubu.


Maluti - Little Umzimvubu via, Matatiele, Ongeluksnek, Tinana, Vuvu and Naude's Nek to Rhodes.
