Just north of Pretoria close to Roodeplaat dam, lies a bushveld haven filled with trails made up of farm roads, cattle paths, dual tracks and strategically designed single track for mountain bikers and the Nissan Trailseeker event. The terrain is hard and rocky amongst the grasslands but boasts with rivers and canals. Wildlife can often be seen on these routes, so keep an eye out for some buck species. The routes form part of the popular Buffelsdrift Trail Park.

Take a look at the 2018 route profiles for the various distances. 2019 Route profiles will be announced one week before the start of the event.
We are changing up the cycling scene by eliminating the registration process and getting our clients to experience the trails without standing in long queues. If you already have a SASeeding timing board, you don’t have to go to pre-registration at all. There will be a Scan & Go station at the event to check if the board is in working condition, more time for coffee with the buddies. Goody bags will be handed out after the race, along with your medal and nutrition. See you soon!
Pre- Registration Venues on Friday, 28 June 2019. Time: 10:00 – 17:00
