McFab Cycling is a boutique social cycling event hosted on a working farm in the Vrede area. It was designed for those who would like to race or practise on their own time, away from city traffic and with the added benefit of Free State countryside, peace, tranquility and clean air. The routes wind between farms in the area, from Frankfort to Vrede to Cornelia to Tweeling, and it also allows for you to host your own clinics as we can also incorporate some techinical areas. Routes will suit most riders, from the more casual rider through to the serious racer or the athlete needing endurance training. The average ascent is 100m per 10km, and you have the option of taking up the mountain challenge: 100m ascent over 2.3km. Distance range from 40km to 100km
You will be sleeping in the original farm house built in 1884 but restored to host you in comfort. If you should choose the fully catered option, be certain that your hosts will treat you to nourishing homey food and delicacies that will satisfy any hungry cycler. We offer different packages. A two night or 3 night stay with all meals included or self catering. After your legs have rested and you have some afternoon time to spare, you are welcome to explore the farm or opt for some clay pigeon shooting, or even go hunting. Late afternoons are best spend starting a bonfire and having sundowners on the front verandah, which has a spectacular view of the farm, and boasts excuisite sunsets.
