Is Magoebaskloof absolute hill phobic friendly?

Recommended Posts

I'm heading there for a wedding in November, figured I could take my bike along but now I believe it's hills and more hills. I don't really want to lug my bike along all the way for a walk up the hills. :blush:

Take a good look at the ground before you go, all you are going to see is sky as you climb those monster mountains.

 

No seriously, better MTB riding you will not find.

Hey guys thanks for the info. I think it answers my question, definitely beyond my fitness and climbing abilities. It does look beautiful though. I 'm there the weekend after the race.

There are other routes around the dam and others which are a lot flatter, you don't have to head up into Mount Merrick and Woodbush areas. Take your bike along, you wont regret it. Magoebaskloof tourism has marked routes now: http://www.magoebasklooftourism.co.za/mountain-biking.php

I look at it this way. Where there is an uphill there's a downhill.

 

That's what I always say! But how is that often there're more ups than downs?

In fietsry is daar ALTYD meer opdraendes as afdraendes en die wind waai NOOIT van agter af nie---ALTYD van voor af !!!

Every climb has a silver lining!

Follow up with Limosine, he will definitely point you in the right (slightly less vertical) direction!
