With a total of 691 kilometers over seven stages, the Absa Cape Epic is indeed one mammoth adventure for riders looking to test their stamina, strength and grit.
Greyton, the destination for the end of Stage Two, as well as the start of the Stage Three leg, provides warm, welcoming hospitality throughout the year – and our charisma is not reserved for only these event weekends. Pre-race training, post event relaxing, or a weekend away ‘just because’ – you don’t need an occasion to visit – #OurGreyton is always here, steeped in history with a flourish of the now.
We’re a country destination through and through with our quaint architecture and whimsical charms, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have an adventurous heart. From hiking to horse riding, and of course a very active mountain biking scene, Greyton appeals to the outdoorsy types, the foodies, the history buffs and those looking to escape the hustle, bustle and stresses of the city. We have traditional values, but we’re also forward thinking and proactive.
The Post House is perhaps a fitting example of the old and new worlds of Greyton. As one of the town’s oldest buildings – constructed in 1860 – it maintains its integrity as a heritage building while providing guests with a boutique hotel experience. An old soul with modern inclinations, after all, we now rely on Facebook and TripAdvisor to spread the word more than we do a postal service. Of course striving for exceptional service never goes out of fashion, and our team continues to grow together in a town where time only appears to stand still.
As we look towards preparation for the Epic and await the two-wheeled and two-legged visitors alike, let’s remember the two sides to the Greyton coin as we bask in the spotlight where country charm meets bright business. We look forward to welcoming you to #OurGreyton
