Get ready for the Grabouw Weekend Warrior

Get ready for the Grabouw Weekend Warrior

To take full advantage of the peak apple season so that many of the orchards in the apple valley will still be laden with fruit while the mountain bikers explore the area, The Grabouw Weekend Warrior  fundraising event, grown by Tru-Cape Fruit Marketing, will be on April 15 and 16 this year.

Like last year, this family-centric event which also invites people to camp in supplied three-man tents, raises funds for Grabouw High School, a beneficiary over many years of Tru-Cape’s events in the area.

Tru-Cape Marketing Director, Conrad Fick, is a lifelong Grabouw resident and an alumnus of the school. “Tru-Cape supports events that are in our grower community, that focus on the health of the whole family, and benefits the community. Monies from this event will go towards a new classroom for Grade Four learners at Grabouw High School,” he says.

The venue is the Grabouw Country Club but riders will also be on the mountains, the nearby wine and fruit farms, and alongside the dam during the 10 km, 28 km, and 44 km routes on offer.

A great ride and time spent with the family, especially for those who are camping in the tents provided by Red Cherry Events, is promised. “This is an event focussed on the whole family,” says organiser Shaun Glover of Red Cherry Events adding, “The Adult Entry is R850 with options to add tented accommodation while children under 14 are R350 each. Day rider tickets for either Saturday or Sunday are R450 each.”

Glover says that the camp village includes a comfy chill zone, live music, hot showers, flush toilets and many food options while the children’s play area includes a jumping castle so there is plenty for the little ones to do while the older ones get stuck into some craft beverage options located in the chill zone.

Entries on the day are permitted but carry R100 per entry premium.
