Greyton and Hermanus are commonly known for their unique character, clean air, mountains, whales and wines. During spring the farm landscapes of Greyton are transformed into beautiful wheat green and yellow canola fields.


At the same time hubbly bubbly happy whales enjoy the warmer ocean waters of Hermanus. But these towns have also become favourite mountain bike destinations, due to amazing MTB trail networks supported by great local cuisine, diverse accommodation and their weekend breakaway characters.


Quite recently another gorgeous item was added to the town’s menu’s; craft beer. The Old Potter’s Brewery in Greyton and The Brewery @Hemel-en- Aarde in Hermanus, have become popular stops for mountain bikers and tourists, to quench a thirsty throat with a delightful and variety of good craft beers.

When the Brewery owners and a local event organiser asked me what I think
about a MTB Event from Greyton to Hermanus, nogal from Brewery2Brewery,
I had to sleep on it, after a few craft beers of course. A light started to glow and
I from far away I saw that the most popular MTB events go from some or other
inland town, next to a mountain, to the ocean. If you add good craft beer and
magic MTB Trails to the destination, you have a winner. Easy, luckily no sleep
