Ride Thaba in a group this weekend.

Recommended Posts

There will be two group rides at Thaba this weekend. Saturday morning at 7am and Sunay morning at 6am. These will not be race pace but rather a good talk and ride group. Please remember the green route has been labeled " JHB's Touhgest trail " so don't expect it to be an easy lipstick ride.

 

The ride should take about 3hrs with an escape route at the halfway mark for those who feel that it is too much.... are you up to the challenge?

Hey Dustbin, the trails are awesome. We have NOT had much rain on the trails and the run off is fantastic. In the valley we do have small areas of that black soil which is a pain, but this also is totally rideable. You will however notice that we are struggling to keep up with maintanance due to the new sections we are trying to complete so there will be sections of a bit of brush growth, but nothing to spoil your ride. Afterall this is mountainbiking at it's best. I can't gaurentee that it's NOT going to rain over the weekend...the weather man can't even get it right.

Didn't join the group, but had a good ride at Thaba this morning. Quite tough out there, the wetness makes some of the parts slick.

 

Loads of climbing, good single track, Thaba just keeps on getting better!

 

Thank you Wendell and crew!
