The Burra 500 is not your average cycling event. It’s a challenge that separates the faint heart from the fearless. Set amidst the stunning landscapes of the KZN Midlands, it showcases the rugged beauty of this region during Africa’s June winter.

Pedal your way through rolling hills, dense forests, and rural villages. Embrace the climbs, descents, and points where the land may lay flat. The journey won’t be easy, but nothing is impossible.

The Burra is a 500 km route, and we limit the number of participants to only 13 in the event. A small group of bikepackers will take on the journey, but everyone will have a different adventure. You can speed to the finish line or enjoy what the heart of the KZN Midlands has to offer.

So gear up, saddle up, and get ready to write your own chapter in the story of Burra500. The adventure of a lifetime awaits in the heart of the KZN Midlands, where every mile is a testament to your courage, determination, and indomitable spirit.
