well I went out this morning did 20.5 k's in and around Chartwell/broadacres, but mainly just on the sand roads (not sure where to find trails in that area), its more to just get out in the mornings and get some k's on the legs. was out this morning from 5h20 for around an hour. The earlier it gets lighter, the earlier id like to start, but want to be done by 6h30. Was also hoping to meet some guys that could show us a couple more routes. Going to be looking at doing around 3 mornings per week, i figure 60 - 90 minutes on the bike is better than sitting indoors on a spinning bike!!! Let me know what you guys think.

There are plenty of trails at the back of the broadacres centre, better to ride them with a group of people though...Its one of the known bike-jacking spots. Join a club...lab rats / fpc / bananas they all do rides out there

medium pace, currently we doing around the 18 - 20km/h average over 23 - 25 km's, but it must also be noted that its not trail riding as we not sure of the trails in the area, so we normally leave BP, past fourways gardens, up Lombardy, into Syringa , right onto cedar then right off cedar into chartwell (there where Steyn's new development is next to Dainfern). Only ride for about an hour, but the earlier it gets lighter, the earlier we'll be leaving, so pretty soon we should be able to get 2 hrs in.
