Once a year, mountain bike enthusiasts get the opportunity to experience a unique adventure in the Koedoes Valley in the Limpopo province. The Mooketsi MTB Challenge takes cyclists through the beautiful landscape of a private game reserve, through agricultural farmland and untouched bushveld terrain.

The Mooketsi MTB is a qualifying event for the Limpopo colours and is an officially sanctioned event of Limpopo Cycling. The race caters for all levels of riders, from the serious cyclists, to the weekend warrior. We strive to present to make this a family weekend. This year the MTB is held on 11 September 2021.
