DULLSTROOM – 2 & 3 September 2017
Venue: Dunkeld Country Estate, Bosman Street, Dullstroom, Mpumalanga
Dullstroom is a small town in Mpumalanga province, nestled at the foot of De Berg and although it may be synonymous with fly fishing, horseback riding, hiking and small town vibes, it has become a new retreat for mountain bike enthusiasts with its high altitude and tough trails.

Dullstroom’s rolling hills, natural foot paths and picturesque scenery is a mountain biker’s dream!
