The Greyton Tour is a non-competitive 2 day MTB stage event. The objective is to give MTBs and newcomers to multi-stage events (NOT NEWCOMERS TO MTB) the opportunity to enjoy a weekend of scenic, fun and non-competitive riding. However, make sure that you are fit as each of the two stages are approximately 50km, mostly on gravel roads (including jeep and single tracks) and that you can, and enjoy riding flowing single tracks.
