Challenging but safe route wanted in Pta


Recommended Posts

Bored with my usual training rides in and around W/kloof, Elarduspark, P v Ryneveld.

 

Any suggestions on a decent alternative?

Take the Hans Strijdom Challenge.  Go down till you get to Delphi road, turn around and head uphill.  My best on my MTB was 11 min till the top.  Road was something like 9 min.  But that was when I was fit. 

I have a other training route, but to remember all the street names is a mission.

Will jot down the names on my next training ride...

Wolverine, are you looking for Alt gain (hills) or all over training?  Fast Downhills dodging cars trucks and busses or no / low traffic?

How about.....

Out with old Brits road heading West.  Over Horns nek.  On the N4 toll road.  Out to Saartjies.  Over Silkaats.  Back over Kommando.  Head out to Hekpoort and back on the old N4.  Should give you some decent climbing? Big%20smile

You can ride any route to make is challenging and to make it safe in Pretoria you just have to wear a bulletproof vest......you will be fine!Wink
