You’ve probably seen Sven Martin’s name in photo credits in Singletrack and pretty much every quality mountain bike magazine out there. Well, now Sven and his wife Anka (who is quite handy on a bike having competed professionally in DH, slalom, 4X, Cape Epic…) are running tours in their native South Africa.
Over to Anka…
houseMARTIN is a new mountain bike touring company founded by Anka and Sven Martin. With a history steeped in travel, racing and trail riding exploration, they are now offering a trip of a lifetime taking in the best of their native Cape Town, South Africa and combining it with a truly unique African mountain bike safari in Botswana where you will be sharing singletrack with elephants and maybe even lions.
Now would be the perfect time to plan on migrating south to join a small group of riders on a 11 day trip of a lifetime in March 2010.
