The Pennypinchers Die Burger Lions Karoo to Coast Mountain Bike Challenge event is owned by the Lions Clubs of Knysna and Uniondale. The event is a 100km off road race from UNIONDALE to KNYSNA via the Prince Alfred’s Pass and is not for the faint-hearted.

The cut off is at the Kom se Pad / Knysna turn off at 14:00 and the Knysna High School at 15:30 as in previous years. There will be seven start groups with approximately five minute intervals in between each group.
The event will be timed by Racetec and transponders can be purchased at registration in Uniondale. No transponder, no result and no prizes.
ALLOCATION OF RACE NUMBER AND SEEDING
Seeding will be done by Racetec after the 10th September and riders will be sent their race numbers via email after this date. Seeding will be based on Karoo To Coast rider results in 2011 & 2012, as well as the Pick n Pay Weekend Argus Cycle Tour 80km – 2012 and the PPA seeding index.
The event entries are up in entry numbers and late entries at registration in Uniondale on Saturday 22nd cannot be guaranteed. Late entries will not be seeded.
Riders may substitute entries but this process only takes place at registration. The new rider must bring the proof of entry the person who is no longer riding receives after 12th September. They must fill in a new entry form at registration and bring this form to enquiries at registration where a R20 admin fee will be charged to change the data. The rider will most probably receive the race number that they “inherited” from the previous rider.
WHAT TO CARRY
Riders are encouraged to take sufficient energy bars/food for your estimated time in the saddle. Please carry at least two full water bottles with your drink of choice and preferably a full “Camelbak” if you have one. Riders should be able to fix a puncture and may want to carry their cellphones. If you are allergic to any medication etc – please indicate this on your person when riding. There will be 8 waterpoints on the route.
