Nikita (Tough Ride)

January 25, 2015 @ 07:00 - 10:30

Ride Groups:  Green, Yellow, Red and blue.

Ratings – Technical: 6/10   Hills: 9/10 for Blue and Red 7/10 for Green and Yellow.  Distance: Green = +-25km, Yellow = 37km  and Blue/Red will do +-45km

Starting From: Nikita Pub and Grill

Starting Time: 7h00 for 7h30

Ride Description: Starting from Nikita we head out on gravel road and / or single track until we reach the Broederstroom Harties tar road (R512). We cross the R512 and then ride some new single and jeep tracks towards the drop offs and the quarry. Blue and Red will do the climb via the Swiss restaurant and then descend the switchbacks before getting to the drop offs. We then ride along the railway line – always a favourite for the hard tails. We wind our way up the Concrete strips and then descend the Crocodile river pass. Some new single track follows, and then returns via the outward leg. The finish is a magnificent fast downhill back to the Nikita parking lot.

Please note this is a Tough ride, BUT THERE WILL BE A GREEN RIDE GROUP FOR THIS RIDE.
Bring money for breakfast afterwards.

Directions: Head out on Malibongwe/Hans Strydom past the Lanseria Airport intersection, pass the Home of the Chicken Pie (Maggie’s Farm) and approximately 10km further on, on the right hand side is the Nikita Pub and Grill. There is a large parking area.
