Hi guys this horse has been beaten to death, but a previous post is quite right, the corridors being members only is because of land owner requests and is not a club decision. They want only members going through the corridors and that is the way it will stay in the foreseeable future. And yes the club tried the deposited board suggestion but got turned down. At R525 for a year membership being steep, bottelary is R450 per month with about 1/30th of the single track to build and maintain that Tygeberg has to do. So no for the cost of basically a single race fee you can ride 60+km of singletrack for an entire year. So no, in relation to any other trail network its a absolute bargain. As for associations with other trail networks/clubs this has been tried many many times in the past, and for various reasons isn't feasible. Even though agreed, it would be nice. So I get where everyone is coming from, but alas I have my Tygerberg membership, i have my botthills membership and i have my jonkers permits. I get value out of riding every single one of those networks so I pay the people that put the blood sweat and tears into making the trails available, Its expensive and hard work to build and maintain trails and that's why every network deserves my contribution. Even if i only ride botthills about 3 times a year. They are still doing good work and expanding as they get more funds.
