This one is for the single track and technical enthusiasts. Cyclists will start off on an open dirt road, leading to a short climb around Klipberg. Some single track and Jeep track take you through the Diemersdal Vineyards (waterpoint at 14km) after which you will experience the 10km !Khwattu trail. A long steady climb on the way home, passing the same waterpoint, finishing off with the popular single tracks of Wolwefontein Farm.
Water points at 12.5km and 36km.
This route is for cyclist who are fit enough but don’t enjoy the twists and turns of our 50km route. The route is predominantly jeep track and includes beautiful views from the heights of Darling. We strongly recommend the 50km, but if you don't like a technical single track, this one is for you.
Water points at 12.5km and 26km.
A farm style ride ideal for beginners and juniors. Rideable, fun single tracks of Wolwefontein Farm. Great route to break yourself in if you are new to MTB. You will start with an easy climb, a smooth road will take you down the slopes of Klipberg and a little peddle at the end will get you that medal.
No Water points on the 10km.
