In 2020, the FNB Wines2Whales, which traditionally takes riders from the wines of Lourensford to the whales of Hermanus, will switch back on itself and present riders with a completely new journey from Hermanus, to Oak Valley, and onto Lourensford Wine Estate for a truly memorable finish to the inaugural Switchback!
The FNB Wines2Whales Switchback is no simple route reversal, it is a complete reimagining of the trails that have carved their way into South African, and international, mountain bikers’ hearts and calendars.
The new route will be a welcome change that all riders can look forward to, while something that remains the same is the price of entries which will not be increased for the 2020 edition of the event. Both returning riders, and first-timers, can be part of the first-ever FNB Wines2Whales Switchback at the same price as the 2019 entry fee, with the added option of a payment plan that allows participants to pay off their entry over three months. Please visit https://wines2whales.com/riders/entry-information/payment-options/ for more information on payment options.
