The FNB Wines2Whales was born out of the desire to establish a world-class 3-day stage race in the Western Cape, South Africa. Since its inception in 2009, it has become a must-do event on the mountain bike calendar, with riders from all over South Africa and the world queuing for the chance to ride it.
Three events spread over 10 days – the Chardonnay, Pinotage and Shiraz – ensure there is something for all skill sets with the focus clearly stamped on celebrating the love of mountain biking and the culture that accompanies it.
The Pinotage is the event that sees the highest number of FNB Wines2Whales first-timers and is perfect for international tourists as well as riders from different provinces as it offers participants the chance to enjoy a mid-week race with an enjoyable weekend on either side.
The FNB Wines2Whales is more about the journey and experience than the destination but, no matter your inclinations or ambitions, you’re guaranteed a fun-filled, action-packed three days of riding.
