Jacaranda FM and Tracker’s “Off the Beat ‘n Track” – Gauteng’s biggest day of mountain biking and music for the whole family – will be returning to the Big Red Barn, Irene on 13 April 2019.
The event features routes for tiny tots, intermediate, advanced and competitive riders, plus a world-class music festival after the race and is set to be packed to capacity for its 3rd installment.
Kids aged 2-12 years can choose from the 1.2 km, 5 km, 10 km and the 25 km riding distances. The advanced riders, 15 years and older can enter the 50 km race which is a timed and seeded event, sanctioned by the Cycling South Africa Governing Body.
Once the ride is done, participants and families can enjoy top-class performances from three of SA’s favourite live acts: Rubber Duc, Lloyd Cele and DJ Jazzy D. While the music plays there’ll be Acrobranch for all ages, a designated kids area and an array of food trucks too.
“This event and the atmosphere is one of a kind – and we’re thrilled that it’s now an annual part of the MTB calendar” says Kevin Fine, General Manager of Jacaranda FM. “There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a professional or casual rider or just starting out, or even if you’re just there to enjoy the music and outdoors’.
Tracker CEO, Wayne de Nobrega said, “This is the third year Tracker has partnered with Jacaranda to present Off the Beat ‘n Track. The event is now well established as a family fun day and we love that it takes place in a safe and child-friendly environment. It’s a chance to spend the morning on your bike, relax on the lawns and enjoying some of SA’s best musical talent.”
