2018 was a wonderful year at De Hoop, record-breaking whale numbers, fantastic guests, and the launch of The Shed.
Whether you’re looking to train or compete next year, De Hoop Collection provides an ideal backdrop for some varied mountain bike training thanks to its myriad of tracks, trails and roads. Take your game to new heights as you ride amongst the fynbos and animals that call the reserve home and then relax with De Hoop’s special brand of hospitality.

If competing is on your bucket list, don’t miss out on the 2019 De Hoop Vlei MTB experience. Not only is it an awesome event for athletes with a 68, 62 and 50 kilometres stage race, but it’s a fantastic family affair too with supporters and kids able to spend time taking in De Hoop’s amenities (swimming pools, tennis courts, onsite restaurant, guided activities, spa) while the athletes engage in the race.
“Hierdie is so ‘n lekker familie-‘event’... en ek dink dis wat dit anders maak as enige ander ‘Stage race’.” - Suzanne
A new event for this year’s calendar is the 102km De Hoop XCM. This is offered as an upgrade option on the 62km Stage 2 “Experience” route
“The marathon route includes 1 600 meters of climbing in the 102 kilometre distance, and entrants should prepare for a challenging day in the saddle.” - dehoopvleimtb.co.za
