The Knysna Speed Festival
Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic the 2020 Simola Hillclimb has been postponed to 6 – 9 May 2021.
The Hillclimb, held in Knysna over the past decade, has become South Africa’s premier motorsport lifestyle event with approximately 17 000 people from around the globe attending, and over 250 000 livestream views over the weekend.
RECM Knysna 200
The three day stage race is an excellent opportunity to unwind in a town you love, participating in a sport you adore as you recharge their batteries. The intimate nature of the race, with only 350 riders means that by Stage 2 you’ll recognise all your fellow riders. For RECM this means they have the chance to answer rider’s questions on the complex world of investments personally.
Running, cycling, culinary delights, and family fun. The 2020 Knysna Oyster Festival has been cancelled due to COVID-19 but will be replaced by the Virtual Knysna Oyster Festival which will take place between 27th June and 4th July.
