Wellington is renowned for its beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads, picturesque environment, gardens and numerous wineries. The historic Bain’s Kloof Pass, built by master-road builder Andrew Geddes Bain, with its unsurpassed vistas, indigenous flora and fauna and crystal-clear streams and rivers is the perfect spot for hikers and fly-fishermen, while closer to town guided wine-walks and horse-trails through the rich farmland and fynbos can be enjoyed.

The dried fruit industry is synonymous with Wellington and the town is surrounded by fruit orchards, wine estates, buchu plantations and olive groves. In addition, Wellington’s vine-cutting nurseries are responsible for the production of approximately 80% of the country’s vine root stock for the wine industry.

Mountain biking is well-established in the region and in 2016 the race will pass over some of the renowned trails as well as a few hidden gems.
