Ride Description: A relatively new route with plenty of awesome single track. Leaving from Ngwenya, it heads out more or less South East wandering sort of parallel to Beyers Naude.
Near Cosmo City it turns North East and some of the stronger groups go almost as far North as Lanseria and then return to Ngwenya via some Logwood tracks sometimes in the wrong direction.
Some technical/sketchy bits but certainly pretty hilly. Bring money for the Ngwenya restaurant breakfast afterwards and/or the Gillroys specially brewed beer.
Visitors welcome at R30.00 per rider. Please bring some money for coffee/breakfast afterwards.
Directions: From the N1 travelling South, take Beyers Naude offramp and turn right across the highway. Drive 13.5km and turn right into the R114 (Diepsloot). Drive 100m and turn left onto a gravel road (sign to Ngwenya), drive 460m and turn right into Ngwenya.
