Zuurberg & Hayterdale, Eastern Cape

Bru, few experiences on the bike come close to the Great Zuurberg Trek. Yup, I know many mountain biking stage races like to lay claim to a ‘boutique’ experience, but few of them actually deliver on this promise. The annual #GZT does so on all fronts, and without losing the edge when it comes to riding these wild Zuurberg trails the region has become legendary for.

Ultimate Southern Pass Trail, Stanford Valley

This MTB route traverses private properties near Stanford Valley, and everything from views to riding rate as downright superlative.

De Hoop, Overstrand Region

De Hoop rates as one of the Western Cape’s premier hiking destinations, with the Whale Trail offering an unparalleled coastal hiking experience. More recently, the reserve has been favoured by mountain bikers, who come here to lose themselves along the endless back roads.
