Mountain bikers can look forward to finishing the Pennypinchers Origin of Trails in style at the Blaauwklippen Wine Estate in Stellenbosch on November 27 and 28.
The venue has come on board to host the daily finish of the two-day stage race, which is affectionately known as the mountain bike party of the year.

Blaauwklippen group and events manager Nanette Cloete said the estate offered wine and brandy tastings, cellar tours and a market among other activities.
“Mountain bikers can look forward to experiencing all our facilities, enjoying good food and good wine while relaxing on our lush green lawns after a tough day out on the Origin of Trails route.”
Event manager Alexa Cunningham added that there was plenty to do for the whole family, including pony rides and a petting zoo for children.
“What better way to end off the mountain biking season than with family and friends, surrounded by mountain bikes and eating great food on a wine farm in one of the most beautiful towns in the world.”
The feature race covers between 60 and 65km per day, with the short course approximately half that distance.
