The Routes

Montagu is the official home of Eroica South Africa, and our routes will stay the same for the foreseeable future. Our three beautiful gravel routes have been named after the Keisie, Kogman and Kingna rivers that meet in the spectacular Montagu valley. 

Keisie - 140km

Our longest route takes us north-east and up the gruesome Ouberg Pass, after which we start heading west around the Langeberg-Wes mountains. This gravel route gets really isolated and wild before we meet the tarmac and start heading south again, first down the Rooihoogte Pass, followed by the Burgers Pass, and then a fast roll into town. Providing there’s no headwind of course! 

Kogman - 90km

This option follows the 50km Kingna route until you get back into town, and head straight out again towards the north-west and into the Baden area. Here it gets beautiful, and a little tougher with some steep gravel climbs and downhills. But there is a great reward - after a short portage section with some thorns and singletrack, you’ll arrive at the remote Pietersfontein dam. The brave and hot amongst you can clamber down to the water for a swim before descending the dam wall down some narrow concrete steps. You’ll have to carry your bike, so please be careful. From the bottom you start your return to town.

Kingna - 50km

Our shortest route follows gravel farm roads along the pastoral Kingna river valley to the east, to a special ‘water’ stop at the Kingna Distillery. Then after a short stint on the R62 tar road, you get back onto farm roads all the way into town, and straight to the festival venue for some good food.
