Ride Description: Serious single track and forested sections – awesome stuff – even for Green. Red and Blue will be guided on tracks off the Red Barn farm tracks and Yellow can do the same if they want to.
Green: 25 km. Follow Green markers. Can extend the ride to include part of the Blue route, but will also include some tracks outside. Yellow: 30 km. Follow Blue route and may include parts of the Black route if the need arises. Red 35 km and Blue 40km. Ride on the Blue and Black routes within the farm and then outside the farm. The tracks outside will be on GPS. Inside riders need to follow markers as they are constantly adding new tracks. The loop outside is 12km and is the same for everyone.
We have arranged for a discount for all riders. JMBC will pay for all JMBC members and Visitors pay JMBC the usual R30.00 visitor’s fee plus the Red Barn entrance fee. There is a coffee shop at the venue where you can get something to drink and eat
