340km from Hillcrest to Hilltop Camp, Hluhluwe.
All in the name of rhino conservation,
Who wouldn't want to be a part of this cause?

The 2017 uBhejane Xtreme MTB Challenge will once offer riders a spectacular day on the bike taking them from the leafy Upper Highway region to the Zululand Bush.

With over R250 000 raised in 2016, the event drew in a number of high-profile characters and 2017 will see the likes of former Springbok and Sharks centre Jeremy Thompson as well as Dusi Duke Martin Dreyer.

With four different options open to riders, the Long Horn, Short Horn, Baby Horn and the Orphan, the distances will appeal to riders of all abilities.

The uBhejane Xtreme is a self-funded ride that does not have an entry but does require participants to cover their own expenses as well as raise a minimum of R5000 to be donated to rhino conservation in the province.
