Who has a Wild Card?

Recommended Posts

To gather some ammunition in my quest to have single track built on the slopes of Table Mountain, I would like to know the following:

 

1. Do you have a Wild Card?

2. How often do you use it?

3. Do you cycle in San Parks reserves on a regular basis (for instance, Tokai/Silvermine)?

4. Do you think cyclists are catered for specifically, by San Parks?

5. Would you be prepared to pay to get access to areas, currently off-limits to cyclists?

6. If you have ONE idea/suggestion to enhance the cycling experience, what would it be?

 

I would appreciate as much feedback as possible. Please restrict yourself to a YES/NO answer on questions 1-5.

Try and keep your answer to question 6 short and succinct. I know we all have grumbles and gripes, but I am looking for pro-active and achievable ideas and suggestions.

 

Thanks

I had a wild card before they changed the system, haven't bothered to get a new one yet. I've heard a rumour that TMNP is happy for the slopess Devils Peak to be turned into a bike park, is this true? I was also given permission to ride on the single track below the cable station by one of the rangers recently!
