Permits for SANParks areas. Last bit from top of the hill down to town is only open on race day, so just continue on, down Simola.

Knysna is known all over the world for her beautiful and challenging mountain biking routes, but did you know that the Momentum Weekend Argus Knysna Cycle Tour routes include access to sections of privately owned property that are normally closed to the public?

Leon Evans (Dr Evil) is responsible for setting up and managing the mountain bike routes for the Knysna Cycle Tour every year. They are routes that you would not normally have access to.

You will ride through scenic farmland areas and be exposed to the beauty of the natural fauna and flora of the Garden Route, while testing your skills to the maximum.

Age limits have been adjusted to ensure that fun riders have the maximum amount of FUN.

There are prizes for fun riders and plenty of pre- and post-race activities over the weekend.
