Liberty waterberg encounter

2019 Liberty Waterberg Encounter
7–9 June 2019
3 STAGES – 172KM – 2774M ASCENT

The scenic Waterberg plays host to the second edition of the Liberty Waterberg Encounter – a delightful three stage mountain bike tour which links the upper market bush lodge of Sondela with Element Private Golf Estate in a memorable 172km journey over the some of the best mountain-biking terrain in the north of the country.

The event takes place over the weekend of 7-9 June 2019.

The Waterberg Encounter, and indeed its Winelands counterpart, affords our passionate participants an unequalled on and off-road experience. It is an encounter where riders are treated as VIP’s and where they are offered world-class hospitality at 5 Star venues.

Riders are allowed to enter in teams of two or solo.
