Hennops MTB Trails – October 2020 (Intermediate Level)

October 4, 2020 @ 07:00 - 11:00

Just make sure to be there from 06:30 for 07:00 but recommend that you come earlier as Hennops gets quite busy on a weekend.

Visitors are very welcome to join the club ride. The ride is at a private venue so you will have to pay the venue entrance fee. Ask one of the club members to introduce you to the ride coordinator who will assist with the legalities and help you join the right group. We typically cater for all skills, fitness and experience. Each group is led by a group leader and typically a sweep as well. Aside from the entrance fee, bring extra money if you wish to have a bite post the ride.

Ratings: Technical: 5/10 Hills: 7/10. Distance: 26km (Green) to 36km (Blue). Typical ride groups, depending on the number of riders, are: Green (shortest distance, slowest pace and technically easiest), Yellow, Red and Blue (longest distance, fastest pace and technically hardest).

Starting from: Hennops Hiking Trails. The MTB trail starts from Hadeda Camp which is situated next to the Hennops River. The MTB trail does not use the same trails as the hikers. It does however cross the hiking trails on three occasions.
Hennops MTB offers some really stunning trails to suit all levels of expertise and fitness. The trails are colour coded and the main circular (single/jeep) track, 13km is green. For the beginner rider there is the option to escape and to complete only the River loop (5km) section. Branching from this main track there are various loops marked in blue to choose from, (Skeleton Hill, Kayalami, Pelindaba and Watergat loop) to create your own choice of distance up to 26km.

Directions: Take the N1 West and turn off on William Nicol towards Fourways. Continue on R511 and cross the N14, turn left and continue on R511. Cross Hennops river and look out for Hennops Hiking trails sign on your left.
