HEY GUYS

 

WITH THE BIKE JACKING & MUGGING ON THE RISE,I THOUGHT WE SHOULD START A THREAD WHERE FELLOW HUBBERS CAN SUGGEST SAFE PLACES TO RIDE & PLACES TO AVOID & EVEN POST PERSONAL EXPERIENCES WHILST IN THE SADDLE.

 

 

 

IN MY OPINION THE TOP 3 PLACES WHICH ARE SAFE TO RIDE IN JHB WOULD HAVE TO BE:

 

1.RIETVLEI

 

2.GROENKLOOF

It's in Rivonia/Paulshof area next to the N1.

 

All just singletrack with some jumps, high bridge/pathways, bmx course etc.

 

Real nice place for some technical training.

You don't mention alone or in a group but in my opinion any place without guarded, gated paid entrance is a risk. I won't put Klapperkop on the list when you are alone. They have fenced it to keep the zebras in but it is not gated and there are at least two entrances/exits that can be used without jumping the fence.

 

In PTA

 

Groenkloof - Group/Alone

Voortrekker Monument - Group/Alone

Rietvlei (not in JHB) - Group/Alone

Klapperkop - Group
