  1. Hi there, We're a team of 2 driving up for the Sani2C. We're based in Stellenbosch, so anyone from the Cape area is welcome. We have space available for 2 people with their bikes and kit. Flights are difficult and very expensive at the moment, so join us for the scenic drive there and back, and save on costs. Contact me asap so that we can make arrangements!

  2. Hi Guys. We are visiting the Stellies area from George this weekend. Just want to know if anyone has info on the XCO track used for the UCI Cup in 2018. I cannot seem to get any info on it, except that it is in Stellenbosch, close to or on varsity grounds? Will we be able to go and ride on it? If so do we have to buy permits and where?
  3. https://www.backabuddy.co.za/champion/project/communal-bike-park Good morning Hubbers! Check out this article
  4. Hi Guys Can someone recommend a reasonably priced self catering house / guest farm / rustic spot in the Stellenbosch environs? A group of 6-8 of us are looking for our next MTB weekend near Jonkers and / or G-Spot. Thanks Steve
  5. Dear Hubbers A student here looking for some commuting, route and safety advice. I’m very interested in commuting daily with the road bike, from Durbanville to Stellenbosch, and back. In the mornings I’ll leave at 07:00 and get there at 08:00, and in the afternoons I can ride back at ~12/1 or on some days 4pm, depending on classes. I’m considering 3 route options, and that’s where I want to ask what you think will be safest. Safety (with regards to getting hit by a car, as well as being attacked/mugged by a person) is my biggest concern, and the only thing holding me back. 1st option is Bottelary road and then the R304 into Stellenbosch, past Kayamandi. That last part is obviously my main concern, but maybe at 8am, with cars sitting in traffic there, it might be okay? Or is that some false security? And maybe avoid this route in the afternoons, if there is little traffic? 2nd option is also Bottelary road, but then taking Kromme Rhee to the R44, and past Cloetesville into Stellenbosch, to avoid Kayamandi. I just don’t know if Kromme Rhee is a good idea with lots of cars in the morning…I’ve had some of my closest passes there, not fun. But maybe a good afternoon return route, with less traffic? 3rd option is Polkadraai road (after taking that new road past Zevenwacht to get to Polkadraai). Similar distance, but the more hilly route should take a bit longer. But like I said, I’d rather ride 10 minutes longer than not arrive there at all.. I’ve linked the routes below if you want to have a closer look or make a better suggestion. Lastly, route options aside, would you do it, or allow your son to do it, from a safety aspect? I really want to at least try it during the summer time, to save money on petrol and car maintenance, save the frustration of traffic, and get some good training in at the same time. But I obviously realise that none of that is worth it if you’re risking your health or life.. I look forward to hear your opinions, thanks! ----- Route links: Bottelary route: (https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Tyger+Valley+Shopping+Centre,+Willie+Van+Schoor+Drive,+Bellville+Park,+Cape+Town/-33.8775771,18.6826083/-33.9041575,18.699289/Stellenbosch+University,+Stellenbosch+Central,+Stellenbosch/@-33.9024175,18.6797014,12z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m16!4m15!1m5!1m1!1s0x1dcc50ba223f9d4d:0x37df01cc2657c7c3!2m2!1d18.6350371!2d-33.8735434!1m0!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x1dcdb2432e9fe5d1:0xcb41c6b0379331f3!2m2!1d18.864447!2d-33.9328078!3e0) Kromme Rhee route: (https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Tyger+Valley+Shopping+Centre,+Willie+Van+Schoor+Drive,+Bellville+Park,+Cape+Town/-33.8775771,18.6826083/-33.9041575,18.699289/-33.8676453,18.848498/Stellenbosch+University,+Stellenbosch+Central,+Stellenbosch/@-33.9000289,18.6797014,12z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m17!4m16!1m5!1m1!1s0x1dcc50ba223f9d4d:0x37df01cc2657c7c3!2m2!1d18.6350371!2d-33.8735434!1m0!1m0!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x1dcdb2432e9fe5d1:0xcb41c6b0379331f3!2m2!1d18.864447!2d-33.9328078!3e0) Polkadraai route: (https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Tyger+Valley+Shopping+Centre,+Willie+Van+Schoor+Drive,+Bellville+Park,+Cape+Town/-33.8775771,18.6826083/-33.9509485,18.7097798/Stellenbosch+University,+Stellenbosch+Central,+Stellenbosch/@-33.9174227,18.6797014,12z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m16!4m15!1m5!1m1!1s0x1dcc50ba223f9d4d:0x37df01cc2657c7c3!2m2!1d18.6350371!2d-33.8735434!1m0!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x1dcdb2432e9fe5d1:0xcb41c6b0379331f3!2m2!1d18.864447!2d-33.9328078!3e0)

  7. Hi there. I am a 63 year gent. Looking for people/group that cycles average speed of 23-25 km per hour. Road bike only. I live close to Eikestad Mall in Stellenbosch and the University. Just back in the saddle again after a 12 year lay off. Did the 2018 Argus in 5 hours 43 minutes with very minimal training. Ride on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Note: Rain = no cycle.
  8. Howzit guys, So my friend and I are planning to go through to Stellenbosch on Saturday to go ride Jonkershoek for the first time. I heard from a few people that it is an amazing track. I am also eager for a new track, so really looking forward to it. Can you guys who have ridden the track please give us advice on what to expect. How long would one ride? How much water will you need? Nutrition? Climbing? Distance? The price of permit? How late does the track open? Any other feedback will be much appreciated as I just want to be prepared for the day. Thanks. ~ André
  9. DATE: Sunday, 29 July 2018 VENUE: Spier Wine Estate, R310 Baden Powell Drive, Stellenbosch TIME: First start at 08h00, last at 08h50 Mountain Bike DISTANCES: • 22km – for children, novices & beginner. • 50km – for intermediate The 13th edition of the Stellenbosch MTB Challenge takes a break from the annual 6 route format and focuses on fun and family with 2 route options launching from our new venue at Spier Wine Estate! Entries are open for the mountain bike event with a 22km and a 50km to start from 8am in various start groups. As there are fewer distance options, entries will be limited to 2000 riders, to give outdoor enthusiasts the ultimate experience. The picturesque routes will cater for beginner to intermediate riders in keeping with this year’s theme of having fun outside with friends & family.
  10. Alet Morgan, a Stellenbosch mom and runner, was tired of all the rubbish next to Jonkershoek road on her daily running route. Thursday, 15 February, she organised more runner moms and friends to help clean up the 6km stretch between Jonkershoek and Stellenbosch. They only managed 1.2km, by which time they filled 32 refuse bags with rubbish. 4.8km remains. Thursday, 22 February, The team from Extreme Lights joined the runner moms to pick up rubbish. We decided as a local business, we also needed to do our part for the community. Our staff committed two hours per week for community service. As part of our #EcoPledge to #CleanUpYourAdventures we chose to join and support the runner moms on the Jonkershoek road as our first, of many clean up projects. We want to challenge other businesses to do the same. Select an area that is special to you. Everyone has one. An area that you always say: I wish they wouldn’t make such a mess or I wish they would clean that up. Go there, and clean it. Do your part for the greater good. Everyone is invited to participate in the next cleanup. It is planned for the upcoming Thursdays, 1 and 8 March on the road to Jonkershoek. 8:00 to 10:00. Contact Theresa Fourie on 084 511 8647 if you would like to join.
  11. Can anyone offer some advice on the best (ideally safe, scenic and reasonably challenging) road route? I don't mind taking some detours. At the moment I've got something like this https://drive.google.com/open?id=1_F7VgQ6Mwd6Bmbd3V-iTGJXLcxI&usp=sharing Thanks in advance!
  12. Can anyone please suggest a good option for deep tissue sports massage. Someone that understands body well, strong touch etc? Thanks in advance!
  13. Established way back in 2004 already, the Dirtopia Trail Centre has undergone plenty of upgrades over the years, and hosted countless cycling events ranging from Cross Country to Dual Slalom to Enduro. Currently offering a complete bicycle shop, full service centre, fully licensed restaurant as well as accommodation, it checks all the boxes for an MTB destination. But none of that would matter without great trails, and the countless hours of labour put in by Meurant and his team. Trails that feature rewarding singletrack and, if you make your way up to the top of the 18km black route, some spectacular views from Paarl to False Bay and all the way across the Cape Peninsula. Other trail options at Delvera include shorter, less technical sections with more mild climbs to cater for those less experienced riders, but for those wanting more, a quick pedal across the R44 gives you access to an extended ride at Muratie and Uitkyk - all forming part of the greater Simonsberg concervancy trail network. Leaving the trail centre, the trail ascends gradually along gravel roads through vineyards until you eventually reach singletrack. The rocky climb along the singletrack gains elevation quickly without being to strenuous thanks to a series of (very tight) switchbacks and traversing trail, snaking its way to the top. A brief break in the thick layer of storm clouds lit our way as we reached the top of the black route, exposing spectacular views all the way from Paarl to False Bay. Simonsberg dominating the skyline towards the right. Darkness. Alarm. Irritation. Snooze. Alarm. Confusion. Get up. Denial. Caffeine. Thunder and lightning! Acceptance. Spectacular sunrise. Bargaining. Pedal up. Shred down. Happiness. The 5 stages of dawn patrols - difficult but always worth it! Daniel Dobinson | iRideAfrica Once you hit the summit, it's downhill all the way along flowing, tight and very rocky ribbons of singletrack, leading you all the way back down to the trail centre for a good ol' eggs benedict and cup of coffee. Delvera holds a lot of my early mountain biking memories. My first national title win, 8hr relay race, and my first Enduro! The terrain is hard pack and rocky, with so many twisty trails to choose from. I really love the sections when you're traversing and look straight into the Simonsberg mountain in all its glory. The trail network has something for the whole family, with its pump track and coffee shop at the trail head. Meaurant takes pride in his trail building, and you can see it reflected in Delvera Matt Lombardi Delvera/Dirtopia Trail Centre GPS: 33°50'56.5"S 18°51'27.9"E Riders : Daniel Dobinson | Matt Lombardi Permit: R50 Website: http://www.dirtopia.co.za/ All images by Ewald Sadie www.esphotography.co.za instagram: @ewaldsadie
  14. Crossing the Helshoogte Pass into the incredibly scenic Franschhoek valley, we stopped off at the more-than-300-year-old Boschendal wine farm, to see what the Boschendal team and master trail builder, Bennet Nel have put together. Click here to view the article
  15. Still a very young trail, having only been established in 2015, it already features six different riding options, with the 33 km (1025 m elevation gain) loop being the longest of the lot. A considerable amount of work has gone into these trails in a short amount of time with a nice mix of well-maintained single track, mountainside jeep track and some farm road. With the majestic Simonsberg towering above and views across the Franschhoek valley, you would be forgiven for stopping every few kilometres, as this is truly a five star view. Remaining clouds from the downpour the night before made for cool temperatures and dramatic skies as we started climbing. A short stint of winding single-track through the olive groves. Lots of history around these trails. An old farm house ruin, property of Frans Diederik Muller, dating back to the 1750's when mining silver was on the up. The remains of the devastating fires that ravaged the area earlier in the year. But nature is more than bouncing back, with carpets of lumo green ferms all around you in some areas. I tell our foreign guests that the sun always wins over the clouds here in Cape Town. Winter rain falls from the skies, the soil greedily soaks it up and the sun comes out before long. In return, we get a beautiful flower display with grippy trails and hardly a puddle in sight. After living in the UK, with its boggy trails, our weather is something I am profoundly grateful of! While we still have a way to go before summer, don't forget to get outside to enjoy the extra grip and let 'er rip! Daniel Dobinson | iRideAfrica Glorious, fresh, grippy, tacky soil. No corners were harmed during the making of this episode. Speedway rider on track! Boschendal trails offer a variety of different terrain. From fast forest trails to open twisty flow trails. The scenery surrounding the trails is truly breathtaking with the Simonsberg mountain always in the peripheral. There has really been a lot of effort put in to making these trails in such a special place just outside of Stellenbosch. Not the most technical trails, but certainly an enjoyable day out! Matt Lombardi Spring has sprung with the oaks showing their new coats. The bottom section of Inferno consists of an incredibly lush and scenic, fast, hard-packed section following all along the creek. More ruins. This water mill dates back to the early 1800's. With Simonsberg towering above you, the Sugar Bowl drops down perfectly groomed single track, snaking its way down berm after berm towards the Trout Cottage.

  16. So there used to be a lone wolf roaming the streets of Stellies on a sweet El Mariachi SS (in spectacular General Lee Orange I must add, and, frankenstein parts until I get more of dem dolla dolla bills). Anyways, I was enjoying the realness of my steel steed on my way to lunch when suddenly this young wolf flashes past in front of me on an almost equally wicked ride - a Contraband Rogue! Could it be? Who is this foe I did ask! And what be your intentions my fellow road warrior? Are you a pack wolf, or shall I challenge thee to a duel?
  17. Hi there, I have a mountain bike that i use for training. However, I have recently entered a triathlon with a 90km cycle so I am looking for a Road/TT bike that I could hire for the event as well as use regularly (once a week) to get used to it? I've seen there are a few places in CT that offer for R300 a day but then I still need to get it to Stellenbosch so by the time I do the Triathlon I might as well have bought myself a new bike (the race is in September). Does anyone know a cheap place in Stellenbosch to rent a road bike, or is anyone themselves willing to lend/rent me their bike for two hours on a weekend to get some time in the saddle? Feel free to comment/PM Thanks! ps. I am quite tall (193cm) so a large or XL bike preferably
  18. Students from at least 17 countries, including leading participants from Europe and the USA, will attend the championship which, for the first time, will be contested outside Europe. The event features four main races – a 122 km road race, a 80 km criterium, a 35 km cross country Olympic and a 1,2 km cross country eliminator. According to USSA rules, specific criteria apply to ensure that only bona fide students participate. Amongst others, students’ curricula are evaluated and carry a certain weight when it comes to grading within their sport. In this case Heuer is a final year engineering student, Van Wyk studies BCom and Sullivan BCom Hons in Public Administration (BPA). The team and their managers, Errard Sullivan and André van Wyk, are full of praise for the support that they get from Stellenbosch University, especially from Ms Ilhaam Groenewald – Chief Director of Maties Sport and USSA First Vice President – and her members of staff at Maties Sport who assist them with arrangements. For the team members and their local sponsors – Stellenbosch Cycling, BMT Bike Shop and Alfa Bodyworks respectively – this is a dream come true. As serious participants in the sport of cycling it has always been their ambition to be sporting national colours and, to represent South Africa and its student community at this prestigious international event, makes them simultaneously humble and proud. “This is a journey that will open new doors for us and for many other South African cyclists to come,” says Sullivan on behalf of the team. “This event will be the highlight of our cycling careers, and we cannot wait!" he adds. CP van Wyk, Max Sullivan and Hans-Werner Heuer, competing in the international World University Cycling Championship from 16-20 March 2016 in the Philippines. Apart from financial support that the team receives from Stellenbosch University, the team members are responsible to cover the bulk of the tour expenses themselves. Those wanting to contribute financially may contact Heuer on 071 401 6871.
  19. Three Stellenbosch University students – Hans-Werner Heuer, CP van Wyk and Max Sullivan – will be representing University Sport South Africa (USSA) at the international World University Cycling Championship (WUCC) 2016 to be held from 16-20 March 2016 in the Philippines. This achievement is even more significant considering the fact that the three-man team consists of Matie students only, selected at a recent USSA national cycling event hosted by Stellenbosch University and attended by seven South African universities.

  20. Hi looking for a good place to go Everesting in Stellenbosch, Somerset West , Betty's bay. I'm looking for a steep hill/gradient in these areas , was thinking of Hans se Kop. Looking for road or mtb routes .Any suggestions would be appreciated thanks
  21. The Wannabees Cycling Club of Somerset West is providing a splendid holiday opportunity to visiting mountain bikers. The club is now offering an opportunity to join your friends and family on the club’s trails for the year-end holiday period at a much-reduced fee. Share in their glowing admiration of the incredible privilege of being able to meander amongst the vines situated at the foot of the majestic Helderberg Mountain. The club’s trails are mostly family friendly and there are more than 90kms of exploration opportunity, which should satisfy the exploration urge of most visiting mountain bikers. View the trailmap here: http://wannabteam.com/cycling-routes/mtb-routes/ The club is offering a 3-month holiday permit, valid from November to January at a fantastic value of only R150 per person. Please contact the club’s secretary at: secretary@wannabteam.com, to arrange your purchase. Please do not ride the club’s trails without a valid permit. (The trails are marshalled). If you need a light, you shouldn't be on the trail. No helmet, no ride. Stay on the trail, and obey all direction markers. The club still offers their regular day permits @R40 per day per person which is available at local bicycle shops in the Helderberg basin during office hours, at Somerbosch Wine Estate 7 days a week from 09:00 – 16:30 and, 24/7 at the reception desk of the NH Lord Charles Hotel. Let the fun begin…
  22. Hi I am looking to increase my training load, I need to train in the mornings from 05:30 to 07:00 are there any groups riding in the area at that time?
  23. Thanks to Canyon, Matthieu got a brand new ride only a few days before, and was keen to put it through its paces. As with our previous outing, we started early and was at the trail head at dawn, ready to experience the first flowy piece of single track that descends into the valley... Mother nature treating us to an epic sunrise. From the top of the first climb, a long and flowy descending single track awaits. "In the last month, two of our most popular mountain bike destinations have been severely burnt by huge wild fires. People have lost their houses, some of our precious wildlife lost their lives and mountain bikers lost our wonderful trails. As heartbreaking as it is to see, we know this is all part of the circle of life and we know the damage will be repaired, given time. Thankfully, we have many other trail networks around Cape Town to make use of in the mean time! The Bottlery trails provide us with some great cross country riding with ever expanding option of trails." ~ Daniel Dobinson | iRideAfrica Fynbos fields separates the block of vines and provides the perfect, hard packed single track. Short, punchy climbs on the switchbacks as the trail winds down into the valley. Early morning mist still hanging around on the valley floor in the distance. New bike. Happy rider. "When we think about Cape Town, we think about wine and vineyards. What could be more logical than riding these tracks during the harvesting period, in order to smell the morning parfume of these plants a last time before the crop goes in the tank. This ride was also for me the opportunity to ride my new Canyon Strive, and the least we can say is that I can't wait for the next rides! This bike makes everything faster and easier, in uphills as well as downhills." ~ Matthieu Hamel Connecting the various parts of single track is a network of gravel roads winding through the vineyards. Rocky climbs out of the valley with the morning mist lurking further down below. Entering the pine forest. During midday summer's rides, these forests provide the perfect break from the relentless heat. The town of Stellenbosch in the distance. Back out into the fynbos and onto the dry and dusty soil. Apparently no such thing as 'too early for beers', so 10am beers it is. Heading back into the valley. Scandi flick anyone? Watering hole specifically for Bottelary Hills MTB riders. Specially handy during summer. Watch out for the guard otter. Cooling down and escaping the midday heat before we head back out on the trails. Riders: Matthieu Hamel and Daniel Dobinson.
  24. As part of the Winelands region of South Africa, the greater Stellenbosch area features an abundance of trails, one of which is the Bottelary Hills trails network. Covering a total of 76km, these trails offer scenic beauty and incredible views of the winelands, Table Mountain and False Bay, and combines a variety of different elements to form a well rounded MTB destination. The network can be accessed from 7 different starting points, all of which sell day passes and something to eat or drink, and it also happens to be a few hundred meters from my doorstep.
