Stellenbosch is a mountain biker’s paradise with a network of trails that can keep riders entertained for days. So it makes perfect sense to host a two-day stage race in a town that is synonymous with cycling and world class trails.

Since it’s first year in 2013, the BUCO Origin of Trails has made use of the existing trail network in Stellenbosch, whilst also adding in its own unique flourishes with specially built and event-only exclusive trails. The town itself is the race village, with participants encouraged to spend a weekend enjoying the pleasures of “Eikestad”. With world class restaurants, quaint coffee shops and numerous “watering holes”, it’s an ideal place to unwind after a morning on the bike.

Starting in the stunning 336-year-old town, riders make their way to the mountains to tackle jeep track, singletrack, steep climbs and pulsating descents – everything you’d want in a two-day stage race. Legendary mountain bike spots like Jonkershoek form part of the route, while access is also granted to farms that are usually off-limits to bikes.

The main benefactor of the BUCO Origin of Trails is the Stellenbosch Trail Building Fund which is committed to further developing the trails in Stellenbosch and sealing the town’s reputation as a global mountain biking destination.
