Once a year around the end of April beginning of May, Klein-Aus Vista organizes a Mountain Bike Challenge, where participants can compete in a 3-day stage race. Cyclists can enter for a 132 km full-marathon or a 66 km half-marathon. There are separate categories for men and women as well as for juniors.
