Aloes in full-bloom for XCO Champs 

Aloe Wildlife Estate in Camperdown will play host to the 2017 KZNMTB Provincial XCO Championships on Saturday 24 June. The estate, owned by Hennie and Erika Parker, provides entertainment like no other, breaths of fresh air, and scenic views of their little piece of heaven just outside the city.

The venue opened its doors to the public in May 2016, and has since then become well recognised by Pietermaritzburg and surrounding locals as an ideal spot for mountain biking, hiking and trail running. It caters for weddings and birthday celebrations. There is exquisite accommodation as well as camping facilities available for those wishing to stay over. The owners often encourage large groups to come along, bring their bikes or running shoes, and enjoy a warm bonfire as the sun goes down over Pietermaritzburg.

With the Birds of Prey Sanctuary situated further along the Lion Park road, this is truly a birder’s paradise as well.

Development stars bask in the spotlight at Pmb MTB Festival

Pietermaritzburg - The success of KZN Cycling's and Cycling South Africa's development programme was on full display as development racing kicked off the three-day long Pietermaritzburg Mountain Bike Festival at the Cascades Mountain Bike Park on Friday. All districts of KwaZulu-Natal were represented, with 10 riders from each district showing off their skills.
