Ride Description: This ride venue has a little bit for everyone. For the greenies there is a gravel road/jeep track path round the perimeter – venture onto some of the single tracks if you are so inclined. For everyone else, a whole lot of forest single track, some hills at the back fence, and a slick rock climb. There is a very technical track for those inclined to test their skills to the limit. Don’t miss this one…

Non-members @ R30 per rider per ride to JMBC as well as the R40 for the Modderfontein management (JMBC pays Modderfontein directly for all fees so you’ll have to pay us, not Modderfontein). JMBC will subsidise members.
