Van Gaalen 24 Hour

Van Gaalen Trails

This will be the 8th year in a row that Van Gaalen Cheese Farm hosts one of the best family fun and team building mountain bike events in South-Africa. SAC Commercial Parts, along with Diesel Technic in Germany, is the proud sponsor of this event and has been for a number of years.

The participants camp on Van Gaalen Cheese Farm and for 24 hours they ride either as individuals or in teams of 2, 4 or 6 – 8 riders. The individual or team that rides the greatest number of laps in their category will be the winner. It is an event where young and old ride together with great comradery. At night there are campfires on route for atmosphere and safety.
