About the Ride2Nowhere

The Ride2Nowhere is a three-day staged, mountain bike race – the race where racing snakes and weekend warriors meet to complete.  Just for fun!

The event is relaxed and the vibe, festive.  Riders choose between the long route (60km each day), or a shorter route (40km each day), and may ride either solo or in teams.

The route – different each year – is only open during the event weekend because the majority of the trails are on private land, adding to this special event’s exclusivity.  Each day, about 80% of the route is single track which requires basic technical skills.  Because of the moderate daily distances, participants have the opportunity to spend the afternoons exploring McGregor village or relaxing with friends and family.  The Ride2Nowhere is an ideal event for enjoying the outdoors and combining it with an extended tour around the Western Cape of South Africa.

As with all R2N events, the organisers strive to support the local community which provides 70% of the event services.  This, in turn, contributes to what makes this a unique and special event.

About McGregor

From Robertson, on Route 62, follow the sign to McGregor to cross the Breede River. Then, head south towards the Riviersonderend mountains, and half way up the Road to Nowhere, is McGregor.  The village is home some of South Africa’s best preserved Victorian architecture;  this is an anomaly in the heart of the Winelands generally characterised by vernacular Cape Dutch architecture.

McGregor is the perfect weekend destination – roughly a 2-hour drive from Cape Town International Airport and where visitors enjoy wonderful wine, fabulous food, walks, mountain bike rides as well as unmissable people and places.

Destination McGregor offers a range of accommodation, including self-catering options in cottages that are original “rietdak” (reed roofed) cottages to newer, but traditionally built adobe and/or brick houses. There is something to suit virtually every taste and pocket, whether you are looking for luxury, bed and breakfast, self-catering or accommodation only – in the village, on farms or in the remote mountain areas.

It’s a popular misconception that McGregor is a sleepy little village. First impressions deceive:  visitors often ask locals  how they keep themselves occupied, and are surprised by how much goes on.
