EcoBound is a family of enthusiastic individuals that are passionate about mountain biking and the outdoors! They share a united love for all aspects of this sport. While some might say that running a family ‘business’ is taboo, they somehow make it work and produce some of SA’s top rated MTB events, bearing in mind – that most of them have day jobs!
The creator, Wikus van Der Walt, started EcoBound in 1996 from his combined love for cycling and the outdoors. Since then Wikus and his family have organized prestige events like South Africa’s first Mountain Bike Stage race; The To Hell and Back. This event forms an important part of the history of mountain biking in this country and is over two decades old.
The Trans Baviaans 24Hr MTB Marathon is well known in the mountain biking fraternity. Known as the toughest single stage race in SA, it attracts so many riders that a second event follows on the subsequent weekend.
EcoBound’s success is attributed to all of the combined ideas and input of each member. They strive to create unique and extraordinary events, always maintaining that personal touch. They are known for their one-of-a-kind events and their passionate attitude for this lifestyle.
