OVERVIEW

Exciting new trails are being built by the Soutnermost Foundation in and around Bredasdorp. These cater for all mountain bikers, from the very fit and proficient to those who just love to spend time on theri bike in unspoilt nature

On your bike

The trails all start in the town itself and loop around in the surrounding countryside and mountains. They range from fast and flowing singletrack through blue gum plantations, farm roads and jeep track, to very technical climbs and fun descents. Almost 40km of singletrack has been built, including a slow ascent along switchbacks through the nature reserve to the top of the ridge to the west of the town. From here undulating singletrack, fast fun descents and a few short, steep climbs take you south to breathaking views across the Agulhas plain to the sea.

The descending trail can be exhilirating if ridden at speed, but also very safe if ridden slowly. The track is extremely well built, with good drainage and the bridges and stiles are sturdy and wide enough to cater for all. New tracks are continually being added and their aim is to have 100km of singletrack.

For those looking for something different, the local BMX track can be a good technical and fitness test for the more adventurous. A trick jump is also situated next to the BMX track for those who like serious air time. The BMX track is also a great venue for children who just want a few hours of fun riding. 

Off the bike

The Heuningberg Nature Reserve is a must for nature lovers and birders and there are several short hikes. in the mountain. A visit to the Cape Agulhas Wine Estates is very worthwhile. Take a trip to L'Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa and the place where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet.
