Mountain Bike Magic at Rooiberg
An exciting new option is open to mountain bike enthusiasts, with the establishment of the new Rooiberg Breede River Conservancy Mountain Bike Trail which offers three scenic and challenging sub-routes covering a total of 71 kilometres.
Permits cost R30 each for doing one or all of the loops during daylight hours, while a one year permit, valid until Dec 2017, is available at R300. In due course permits will also be on sale at local restaurants, guest houses, other tourist venues and online, which will be advertised in the media and on Facebook. The income will go to the Conservancy for its various projects.
The trail project was funded at a cost of more than R150 000 by the Conservancy, and the Graham Beck Development Trust, with the purpose of developing environmental awareness and upliftment of the community, including learners who will be trained as tour guides.
