Thorntree Thundering MTB Epic
This was the first-ever, MTB Epic ride in Livingstone. Hosted by both Livingstone Sports Festival and Thorntree House. The event started at Falls Park in Livingstone City, towards Batoka Gorge and finished at Thorntree House.
The Thundering MTB Epic took them through Livingstone CBD and greater Livingstone itself, where they experienced undisturbed wildlife and settlements in all their glory. The single-track trail had great reviews of the village passes, gorge views, valley rides, and gradual uphill ascends.
The ride was a mountain bike style race with distances ranging from 10km for those looking for a chilled event to 25km and 75km rides for those looking to challenge themselves a bit. Most children took part in the 10km event, while the adults took on the longer distances. A race that caters for the family.
