Pondo Pedal


Mountain Biking


The NEW Momentum Umngazi Pondo Pedal ADVENTURE is the more “chilled” cousin to the Pondo Pedal Race. Situated in the lush, indigenous surroundings of the breathtaking Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape, award winning Umngazi River Bungalows & Spa offers the opportunity of cycling along one of the most beautiful, unspoilt coastlines of the South African coast.

This is an individual event, but riders can choose to ride together should they want to. Space is limited to 80 riders, providing riders and their families an exclusive opportunity to soak up and really enjoy Umngazi’s warm hospitality while touring along Africa’s most beautiful coastline.

Each day’s ride will start and finish at Umngazi River Bungalows, allowing husbands and / or wives to either ride or relax while the kids play at Umngazi. Each MTB route will range between 30km and 35km consisting of varied terrain, from single and cattle track to district roads and mangrove trails.

The focus of the Momentum Umngazi Pondo Pedal Adventure is to provide riders and their families with an exclusive and upmarket MTB event while taking a break from city life. The routes will be challenging, but will give each rider a great sense of accomplishment and promises to be an enjoyable experience.

The Adventure caters for weekend warriors to pro athletes and everything in between. Riders will need to be in a good physical condition with a fair level of fitness to be able to conquer the numerous Pondoland hills and valleys. Families will also be allowed to go out onto the routes (where possible) to see their loved ones in action.
