    Cape Town has been experiencing the worst drought in years, so the event had to be postponed in hopes of some rain arriving.

    It seems the bike lords have been watching – some good rains finally came to the Mother City just in time for the guys to get digging and prepare the trails. After almost a year of not being able to work on them they were eager to get them back to their usual pristine standard.

    It’s all coming together nicely and Capetonians can look forward to the best Night Harvest yet. See you there on March 8.
