‘Life changing’ isn’t a term you hear bandied about much in mountain biking, but than again, there’s not much in mountain biking quite like the joBerg2c.

Old Mutual Joberg2C 2014 Stage 5 Winterton to Kamberg

This 900km race, across four provinces of South Africa, is one of the most phenomenal experiences you can have on your mountain bike. For nine-days, you ride, camp and compete with hundreds of other passionate mountain bikers, passing through more than 100 working farms in staggeringly beautiful terrain. Learn more about the race here, or view the entire route.

Old Mutual Joberg2C 2014 Stage 8 Mackenzie Club to Jolivet

We feel this awe-inspiring event fits well with the ethos of Australian mountain bikers – adventure, mateship and endurance. That’s why Flow Mountain Bike, together with Game On Sports and Travel, has put together two all-inclusive packages for Australian riders to experience the joBerg2c in 2015.

Riding overseas can be a logistical headache, but with these two exclusive packages, we’ve taken the uncertainty and complication out of the picture. From race entry, to internal ground and air transfers, bike transport, accommodation, massages, meals and more, every base is covered; you worry about enjoying the experience (and maybe your legs!), we handle the rest.

Read on, rally a mate or two, and make 2015 a year you will never forget.
