Ngwenya Glass MTB

On the 9th of July 2016 we will be hosting our 6th annual Ngwenya Mountain Bike Challenge, last year we hosted over 250 hardy cyclists, and hope fully this year they will be back to savour the trails of Swazilands highest altitude one day Mountain Bike Challenge.

Swaziland is a mountain bikers dream, with the most amazing scenery and diverse array of possible routes at many different altitudes. Due to our race being at high altitude it is great for high altitude training for other longer events and races. So get training!

We have not been idle throughout the year and have found some new single track and Kia track to improve and keep the route fresh! Like both our Facebook pages to keep updated.

The Routes

70km Marathon

70 km’s of flowing trails consisting of jeep tracks, forest roads, cattle paths (single track) and unused railway lines, with a balance of undulating hills, steep climbs and wicked down-hills.

With altitude variances  from 1350m to 1600m – the route was not for the faint-hearted or weak legged, a couple of cyclists from flatter parts of the country learnt a lesson or two about climbing and pacing themselves. These routes are open to you to come and enjoy throughout the year, give us a shout if you need directions.

We will be scouting for those single track sections to sweeten the route even more.
