The To Hell & Back extreme MTB tour started way back in 1994 when two MTB crazy conservators decided that it would be a great idea to organize a race to Gamkaskloof (the Hell). At that stage it was aimed as a marketing campaign for Gamkaskloof to attract tourist interest to this remote valley of which most of the private farms were obtained by Cape Nature Conservation and a few houses have been restored for the tourism market. Little did they know that this would lead to a new legend being born …… the annual To Hell & Back mountain bike race.
