BIG ROCK Logo.jpg

Die ‘BIG ROCK’ in ons fietsryskool se naam verwys letterlik na die groot meteoriet wat ons geliefde Vredefortkoepel en berge gevorm het en dit verwys figuurlik na ons kinders wat leer om die groot klippe op die bergfietspad, met ewe groot waagmoed aan te pak en te oorkom. Wat ons ook al doen by die BIG ROCK Fietsryskool:


The ‘BIG ROCK’ in our cycling school’s name refers to the massive meteorite that once shaped our beloved Vredefort Dome and surrounding mountains and figuratively it refers to our children who learn to conquer the big rocks along the cycling trails with equal big courage. Whatever we do at the BIG ROCK Cycling School:

In 2023 The Big Rock Cycling School will again host their own events! Instead of a series as in 2022, we will in 2023 host a Primary School and High School Cup Race. The format is Cross Country-style (XCO) lap-racing. The tracks are designed for grassroot-level racing and ALL are welcome. The Primary School racing will largely be fun-orientated and the High School event will pretend to be highly competitive  :D
NB: Entries will open in June.
  • (Thursday) 3 August 2023 The BIG ROCK CUP Primary School Race

  • (Friday) 4 August 2023 The BIG ROCK CUP High School Race
