True mountain bikers know Van Gaalen Cheese Farm and need no introduction. This may sound cheesy, but we think the trails are grate, which is the main reason the Nissan Trailseeker MTB Series keeps coming back to this superb venue. As the big cheese of mountain bike parks, Van Gaalen, one of the original bike parks in South Africa, boasts over 110 km of trails in some of the most unique and beautiful nature spots in the Magaliesberg mountain range. The trails evolve constantly, keeping riders’ interest peeked. The diverse terrain surprises riders at every turn whether they are winding along the river single track, blasting through reed bed tunnels, traversing stony koppies, crossing rivers or just pedalling through the open grassland. Come and experience the working cheese factory and stock up on some authentic Dutch cheese. This riverside venue truly has much to offer riders and spectators alike.
