Are there any legal mtb trails from the nek? Or close by? I have a few hours everyday in the area and would like to get some riding done

I have done quite a bit of riding up there and up the concrete road to the dams etc.  I think there used to be a sign that said no mtb but not any more and have not had any trouble in there. Just be courteous towards walkers etc...

 

It's quite steep at 22% in places but it's a good workout when you have some time to burn.

I also remember the sign next to the concrete rd, in the vicinity of the metal grill. Did a trip up to the dams and the Waterworks Museum, was late on a cold Saturday and we did not see another soul.

Cool thanks guys I will try it, there was no sign there yesterday, there is also a road lower down into houtbay on the left that goes up the hill, any idea where that goes?

that's the pipe-track. goes for maybe 5km then enters a residentual area. you can also ride by the dunes over above sandy bay for a few km and then there is a slog up towards the old radar station - starts up above the fishing village. (probably only try go half-way as the top half is totally eroded and over-grown)
