This short, but intense, MTB trail is extremely popular (it takes just over two minutes, at a speed of 22 km/h to complete). Interestingly the track is shaped by a cyclist / skateboarder called Mark Gordon (you will find him at Mason's Bike Inn in Stellenbosch) who allegedly does this of his own free will (unfunded), in his own time (paying it forward in the true sense of the word).

For help around the corners he suggests on his Facebook page, G-spot trail: 'Think of the trail as the road on Chapmans Peak. You don't go speeding into corners and then brake hard, and then skid into the corner and accelerate out. You feather your brakes so you have the right speed into the corner, then let go and speed out the turn.'

Why G-spot? His friends used to call him G, as in G for Gordon. It stuck.
