Woestyntrap (Annual Cycle Ride)

Every July around 50 cyclists ranging in age from 7-75 years old take to the R360 road between Askham and Upington in the Southern Kalahari for the annual Woestyntrap cycle ride. For three days they roam over the dunes and through the ‘hardeveld’ and for three nights they sleep in tents at various spots along the road – a pan, an ‘oasis’ and a game farm.

Woestyntrap is one in its kind as it is designed for all people wanting to enjoy nature, good kalahari food, cultural exchanges and the other bests the Kalahari can offer from the seat of a bicycle. It is not for competitive cyclists as all receive a medal when completing the race.
