The 2019 Liberty Winelands Encounter has been reshaped to access some incredible new riding terrain as well as spectacular host venues while also easing rider logistics by overnighting at the same venue for the Friday and Saturday evenings following stages 1 and 2.
The Winelands Encounter takes place over three stages from 12 – 14 April 2019, linking Franschhoek and Paarltogether in a wonderful 144km 3-day tapestry of trails in the heart of the Cape Winelands. The majestic Le Franschhoek Hotel will play host to the event for two evenings following the first and second stages. Stage 1 will start at the Boschendal Wine Estate while after stage 3 we will bring the curtain down on proceedings at the beautiful Nederburg Wine Estate in Paarl.
The three-day stage race affords our participants, with a passion for the sport, the experience of a lifetime. It is an encounter where riders are treated as VIP’s and where they are offered world-class hospitality at 5 Star venues. The Liberty Winelands Encounter will see the firth edition of the event.
