Delta Trap – 20 April 2014

April 14th, 2014

Hot on the heels (so to speak!) of the Delta Draf, the third annual Delta Trap off-road cycle race, is on Sunday 20 April 2014. Like the Draf, the route winds through stunning countryside in a 20km loop amongst working vineyards and along the banks of the Dwars river. Three quarters of the race is on farm roads, with a mix of sandy sections, some harder surfaces with stones and some short sections of single track. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall in the 60km team event as well as for the top male/female in the 60km, 40km and 20km individual events.

More than five thousand revellers filled the lawns of Solms-Delta wine estate on Saturday 22 March at the ATKV-Oesfees, as they celebrated the end of the Cape Winelands harvest, in a day of music, food and wine.  Local talent and recently discovered musical gems from the remote Richtersveld, shared the stage with headliners Theuns Jordaan, Robbie Wessels, Karen Zoid, Loukmaan Adams, Valiant Swart and Ollie Viljoen. The annual Boland harvest festival, now in its seventh year, has established itself as an intrinsic part of the Cape Winelands, where everyone, from the farm workers to farm owners, come together to kuier and vastrap, paying tribute to the Cape heritage.
