About



About the event

This year’s STBB 2Keep-a-Breast MTB Challenge and Family Day will be taking place on 22 October 2016 at Overgaauw Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. The aim of this event is to raise funds to combat breast cancer, and all proceeds are donated to CANSA.

This has become known as one of the “must-do” events on the MTB calendar. Our routes are enjoyable, challenging and well marked, our marshals are on the ball, we have the best water tables in the industry, and we are told that ours is one of the best organised MTB races in South Africa. Unbelievable prizes from our generous sponsors, plus loads of lucky draws.

After the race, chill out in Bedouin tents, eat, relax and take in the view. Enjoy the food market, artisan beers and wine tasting, plus a jumping castle and arts and crafts for the kids.

About breast cancer

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. A woman can develop breast cancer at any time during her adult life, and 1 in 10 South African women will. But as more women have mammograms, and with increased awareness and education on the topic, rates of early detection are increasing.

While breast cancer treatments are improving and becoming more successful all the time, our best weapons are still early detection and education, which is why the STBB 2Keep-a-Breast MTB Challenge aims to encourage people to educate themselves and their loved ones about breast cancer and to spread a message of hope and encouragement in a positive, fun and healthy way.

To educate yourself further on the facts of breast cancer, visit the CANSA website at www.cansa.org.za Better yet, book a mammogram TODAY … a mammogram can detect cancer years before you can!

About the setting

The Bottelary Renosterveld Conservancy (“the Bottelary Conservancy”) was registered as a Not for Profit Organisation (“NPO”) on 25 February 2002. Its registered purpose is to conserve the Renosterveld in its area – as such and in line with its NPO status, its core business is to eradicate alien vegetation such as bluegums, pines, “hakia” and “rooikrans” and to enhance the re-establishment of Renosterveld.

Renosterveld is not limited to Renosterbos from which its name is taken, but includes a vast number of other plants and bulbs, in total some 1700 unique plant species. As Renosterveld grows in fertile soils its natural habitat has been taken over by predominantly viticulture and only 4% of the original Renosterveld remains on small pieces of land, which are either too small or too inaccessible to farm commercially. The Bottelary Conservancy is included and forms part of the Cape Winelands Biosphere which was listed by UNESCO on 18 September 2007 – as such its conservation status is recognised internationally.

The Bottelary Conservancy launched a series of Mountain Bike Trails (“the Bottelary MTB”) during April 2011. These are very successful and contain challenging single tracks and flowing jeep tracks, which have unsurpassed 360° views of Table Mountain, Robben Island, the Stellenbosch and Helderberg Mountains and, on a clear day, False Bay as far as Hangklip!

The Bottelary Conservancy is grateful for the success of its MTB-trails which allows annual and daily permit holders to experience extended areas of Renosterveld over farms such as Koopmanskloof, Wolfkloof and Mooiplaas. Annual permit sales (currently at 1000 plus per year) will be capped at 2000 to ensure that the nature experience is retained and only one event per year, i.e. that of STBB which is presented in aid of Breast Cancer, is presented.

As pointed out above all proceeds generated by the Bottelary MTB after meeting maintenance and other expenses are dedicated to preserving and enhancing the Renosterveld – our irreplaceable heritage!
