Wild Side, Gqeberha, Eastern Cape

Gqeberha and the Sunshine Coast have a reputation as one of the friendliest regions in all of SA. That holds true for the Fat Tracks MTB Community in Port Elizabeth, too, and even more so if you should decide to explore the undeveloped western shores.

Cranking Kouga, Eastern Cape

Aweh, my Bru! That corner of the Oos-Kaap radiating outwards from ‘the world’s perfect wave’ rates as one of SA’s most underrated adventure destinations. The next time you come play in Kouga, you’d better pack your bike, backpack, and boots!

Wild Coasting, Eastern Cape

The breathtaking Wild Coast boasts truly epic riding, all the way from the scenic ‘tamer’ section that languishes down south near the muddy roil of the Great Kei River, all the way north to where it nudges up again KZN. Let’s just say it is a vast and exhilarating MTB playground :-)

Khangela mfethu, die Oos-Kaap is 'n lekker plek, no matter what language you speak.

Going Bos in Baviaanskloof, Eastern Cape

The mere mention of Baviaanskloof conjures up visions of adventure biking of the best kind, but the introduction of buffalo and other horned beasties into the mega-reserve has seen a number of changes as far as mountain biking goes.

Trekking to Teebus, Eastern Cape

The far-away and fabulous corner of the Karoo where the Eastern Cape, Northern Cape and Free State cosy up to each other utterly blows my mind.

Baviaans River Conservancy – The ‘Bedford’ Baviaans

Hang on folks, we’re talking about the ‘river’ and not the ‘kloof’. Yup, there’s a whole other Baviaans to explore, but it is way away in this province.

St Francis, Kouga Region, Eastern Cape

The coastal stretch west of ‘the world’s perfect wave’ in Jeffreys Bay rates as one of SA’s undiscovered mountain biking gems. There’s no huge trail network, but you’ll get to super-charge your soul along a range of sumptuous coastal rides.
