I used to ride a route from Lanseria out west of Kalkheuwel to van Gaalens/Harties - tight and rocky singletrack, and Eric van Gaalen briefly had an enduro style track up over the ridge - if thats the sort of thing you're looking for. We frequently found Eland, Sable and Secretary birds out on those ridges.

 

Other decent routes are Pecanwood to Breedt's (and on to Buffelspoort dam) on district road, Magaliesburg out towards Koster (also district), and Midvaal out towards Suikerboschrand and further south (mix of road and singletrack). 

 

Let me know what area you're trying to ride in and I'll see what I can dig up.
