At Schoone Oordt Country House, Swellendam

Welcome to the ‘Republic of Green and Gold’. There are any number of breathtaking destinations in SA’s rural hinterland, but you’ll be hard-pressed to experience a more visual space than #swellendam & the #overberg area over the bars of your #gravelbike. Add celestial winter light & an epic 1700 cyclists to the scenic equation of the BWell Around the Pot – Overberg Gravel Race – Presented by SEESA & you’re set for a visual feast …

This annual event draws riders from all around the world, presenting the perfect route on which to saddle up a your favourite #gravelbike or #MTB. There are no easy kms along the #200miler, #100miler or other routes, but you’re guaranteed spectacular views as you take on those gritty inland rollers traversing wheat & canola patchwork fields of this agricultural region. And at night it is a whole different ball game…

Thanks for the best hospitality in town, Schoone Oordt Country House – wish we could spend more than 4hrs in your lovely space 🙏
