Steyn City is offering mountain bikers the opportunity to explore the incredible network of mountain bike trails constructed inside the estate walls normally reserved exclusively for residents. The 947 Ride Joburg takes place on 8 November 2020 at Steyn City and riders may choose between a 25 km or 50 km route. But do not be deceived. Even though the distance is only 50 km, it packs an elevation punch of 800 metres! The trails are delightfully diverse with around 75% singletrack connected via sections of gravel roads and cement golf pathways. Trails pass through grassland and lush river sections with sharp punchy climbs keeping riders on their toes. Where else can you experience the freedom of nature right in the middle of the Urban Joburg Jungle? This is proper mountain biking for the true mountain biker at heart.

Event detail

Event format

  • The 947 Ride Joburg MTB is divided into two distances of 500 participants each starting one hour apart.
  • Each distance is divided into 5 batches leaving every 3 minutes.
  • Batching will be done in accordance with a rider’s SAS Index allowing the faster riders to start first.
  • Only pre-paid pre-entries will be accepted to reduce queueing and promote social distancing.
  • A screening station will be set up at the venue entrance where riders’ temperatures will be recorded and a questionnaire will be filled out. Riders will at the same time be registered for the race. SAS boards will be scanned and linked to participants’ names.
  • Sanitation stations will be placed throughout the venue. Please sanitise regularly.
  • Riders are required to wear a mask/buff at all times when on the venue or at water points. You may remove it once you start riding.
  • Spectators can unfortunately not be allowed on venue, as that will push up the numbers past the acceptable COVID-19 event number.
  • Riders will collect their medal and goody bag when they have finished their race together with a sealed beverage.
  • Riders cannot be encouraged to stay around after the race and we ask that riders exit the venue as soon as possible.
  • There will be limited seating available to avoid congregating as much as possible.
  • Nevertheless, expect a festive atmosphere and a beautifully set up venue!
  • There will be food, coffee and soft drinks for sale. Unfortunately, no alcohol.
  • There will not be a prize-giving ceremony at the venue and winners will be announced after the race.
