Have you thought of riding your road bike at altitude? Have you been to Lesotho before? Join our training camp over the new year in Lesotho!

The rides are out and back, so you can shorten the days depending on ability, or add a bit with Mahlasela repeats near Afriski.
We have done this before in a training camp setting and it has proven to be beneficial for the group that embarked on the camp. Mountain biking is a possibility with many trails around Afriski, and this lends itself to an Epic training camp block.
Lodge Accommodation with all meals at the Sky Restaurant: R4000 per person sharing (Single supplement R4500) this is a Self drive option.
Join us on this adventure!
Valid passports required and the routes planned are possible with regular road bike gearing. (compact chainrings and 11-28t minimum is recommended)
There are also a range of other activities for kids and non riders to do at Afriski in summer, and spending time at the altitude setting is always relaxing and fun.
