Rooibos Ltd was the proud title sponsor of the first Rooibos2Muisbos MTB held in perfect weather on Saturday, 27 July 2019. A total of 400 mountain bikers entered for either the 112 km (starting at Clanwilliam) or the 38 km challenge (starting in Graafwater). Both events finished at Muisbosskerm, which is approximately 5 km outside Lambert’s Bay.
The event organiser, Albert de Bruijn, was satisfied with the overall number of entries for both events. Various local mountain bike enthusiasts also participated in the event. “We have the infrastructure and we have the scenery. And we are grateful to have Rooibos Ltd on board as sponsor. We will now build on this experience to offer an even bigger event in 2020.”
Gerda de Wet, Communication Manager at Rooibos Ltd, said the sponsorship of this sports event fitted in the company’s philosophy of promoting a healthy lifestyle by drinking Rooibos. ‘Over and above serving as a marketing event for Rooibos Ltd, the MTB also boosted tourism in the area and supported local businesses. May this be the first of many such events.’
