Routes around Midmar


Recommended Posts

I'm going down to swim the Mile this weekend and I'm taking my road bike with.


Does anyone know of any good routes in the area of around 50-60km?

Just ride out to Nottingham Road and back. Simple out and back route, uphill the first 30km's and downhill back to Midmar!

From Midmar ride out past the Mandela arrest site, straight through Balgowan and on to Nottingham Road.  Stop at Notties hotel or any of the other drinking holes, and then turn around and head back to Midmar.


A more challenging route is also out and back from Midmar.  Head out the same way, but take the first right to Howick (over the N3).  Take a left at the Curry's Post Road which is opposite the hospital (conveniently) in Howick (basically first set of traffic lights where you can turn left).  Head on out on a rollercoaster ride to the end of the tar and then rollercoaster back again.


First route road number is R103.  Not sure what the Curry's Post route number is.  Do be aware that the drivers in the area are w**kers so be careful.
