Yip

Not wanting to get embroiled in a moralistic/racist debate with anyone, but Dangle and a bunch of the boys lead a crusade and made the world a better place for us by engaging with the natives and letting them know more about us cyclists. That and busting a syndicate/bunch of bastards who were picking us off and stealing our bikes.

 

It is safer inside now, and you can buy the pass online now instead of going to the ticket office.

(someone help with the address please)

Oh - The guy at the ticket office says the tickets get discounted as soon as you buy 20.

20 x R15 = R300

 

Apparently if you buy 19 tickets they are R30 each, you have to get 20.

 

I haven't tested this yet but that's the word from the ticket office!

Was there this morning. Was super duper awesome man. Everything about is was nice. From the oke at the gate who is always as fresh as a suikerbossie to the trails, to the guys at the bike wash, the dude on car guard duty. Lots of visible security in the area. The girls makes the best egg & bacon rolls in town. Single track is sweet an did I mention the trail!!!

 

Highly recommended in short!
