MAY 2018, EDITION 11
Your final information. It’s time to ride!
It is too late to train now so if you haven’t done the training the only thing you can do is mentally prepare yourself and toughen up!
Every so often I realise again how fortunate I am to be doing what I love, farming and
being actively involved with mountain biking.
KAP sani2c has world renowned trails and some of the most breath taking riding to be found.
Few will ever know of the true impact this event has had on the many South Africans and others who have been privileged to have...
Your KAP Sani2c GPS files were proudly prepared by EasyBike our GPS Guru’s.
We are now in our 5th year of using GPS navigation to navigate our unmarked route. It seems daunting to some but once the routes are on your unit, all you have to do is ride and follow the bread crumb trail.
NB: Three things to remember:
There are two ways to load our route onto your GPS:

Dear 2018 riders,
Every so often I realise again how fortunate I am to be doing what I love, farming and being actively involved with mountain biking.
Whilst we host you next week, take the time to look and speak to some of the people behind the scenes. It would not be possible to produce an event such as this without the dedication and commitment from so many. The eager sani2c community of farmers, local villagers, and their families and friends who not only give us access to their land and time, but also demonstrate a special kind of hospitality and old-world charm seldom experienced these days. They are the ones who have worked so hard over the years, they will be the ones who will feed and water you along the way. They will encourage you with country-folk humour and make you laugh, regardless of how much you may be hurting. They are among the many passionate people you will meet during KAP sani2c 2018.
KAP sani2c has world renowned trails and some of the most breath taking riding to be found. That’s what has helped make it a success for everyone involved but sani2c is way more than just a mountain bike event. Over the years it has motivated, benefitted and inspired so many people. KAP sani2c will be paying out over 10 million rand to these hard working communities for the 2018 event. Now into our 14th year and with the “honeymoon” period long over I continue to see the passion in all these communities supplying services for our event. Although this valued cash injection is vital for these essential rural organizations I feel that the positive spirit generated by sani2c maybe more important. So please show your appreciation to all those working so hard behind the scenes, even if it is just a grimacing smile as you climb “Iconic”. Seeing your appreciation is what we feed off and it is that which inspires us to do more every year.
Few will ever know of the true impact this event has had on the many South Africans and others who have been privileged to have been touched by “sani gees”. The influence this event has had on all those involved is more than anyone would ever know.
To all of you who are so supportive and positive in all that we do. What can I say but, THANK YOU. Thank you, one and all, for your passion, dedication and commitment to a proudly South African event.
Travel safe and we all look forward to welcoming you at Glencairn for the ride of your life.
