This intermediate mountain biking route is set over farm lands and tracks, it is about 18 to 55 kilometers long depending on the route you take. You should be able to complete the route in 3 to 4 hours.
From Groenvlei Farm, take a short drive to Krieglerskraal to park and then ride back down towards the red gate. Once there you are at the farm track. If you are staying at the farm overnight, your hosts will be able to give you a track guide. You will go through reservoirs, up two passes, over steep necks, through 8 farm gates and more.
This ride will get your thighs burning, and allow you to really challenge yourself. The views are lovely, so make sure you stop now and then to admire them while you have a sip of water (bring plenty and fill up along the way).
