"THE LOGWOOD BIKE WILL BE RE-OPENING ON SATURDAY 29TH MAY 2010 TO CO-INCIDE WITH THE ANNUAL LOGWOOD COUNTRY FESTIVAL"

 

Seems to be a typo leaving out "Park" .... but the way I read it is that the bike park is reopening in conjunction with the festival?

Say it is so!

Dear RMBC Member ?
Your support of this worthy cause would be appreciated.


We will be hosting our annual Country
Festival on the 29th of May 2010 and in conjunction with this we will be re-opening The Logwood Mountain Bike
Park
.   We are very excited as the Bike Park has
been closed for some time now.



Due to the fact that it is our Country Festival, you will only pay the
entrance fee for the Festival (R30 adults/R10 kids,12 years and under) and
not for the Bike Park.  So for one day only, you get free entry into our
bike park so come and see what developments have taken place on the bike
trails.



In the past the bike park was run by an outside vendor.  His fee was R50
entry for all.  From hereon out the entrance fee into The Logwood
Mountain Bike Park will be R30 per person.



So bring your mountain bike along and don't forget to bring the family along,
as our Festival caters for everyone.  While you are experiencing our new
trails, your family can enjoy the following at our Festival:

Please give more info on logwood. I wasn't in Gauteng, while they were still open.

 

Is it something like the MTN bike park?

Its very similar...

 

A basic +/-2km completely untechnical loop, with different single tracks coming off at various points. Gradings are similar to MTN bike park, from easy to double black diamond.

 

Alot of man made bridges, dropoffs, etc.

 

Will have to see what they've done with it in the last few years.

Stewie, it was a brilliant place for okes and their bikes. It is near the Ngwena Village at the extreme Western end of Beyers Naude drive in the sticks.

 

It was the brainchild of abrasive/misunderstood Geoff the Aussie. He transformed the crappest piece of land in the world into a fantastic place to ride. It is a large plot overgrown (but I mean overgrown) with bluegums, blackjacks, stink-apple and other obnoxious plants, through which he carved many kilometers of twisting track. It has drop-offs, bridges, scary rails, crazy bridges over a sewage dam (I kid you not) and a long hard uphill.

 

It was great fun. The most fun to be had was to watch Geoff throw smokers off the property with a flurry of swearwords.

 

Walking on the little patch of lawn was a crime too, but I loved the place.

 

Geoff then went on to greater things and built the MTN Bike park.

And to think that I wheelied my bike out of the 'shop' / office onto the grass patch! He must have been spitting snakes!

 

Oh well, what you don't know can't hurt you LOL

Did anyone go???

 

No answer- so we went on sunday and how sad,we were the only 3 people there. The technical area is similar to MTN bike park but just a little run down now!And it's so small compared to when we did the 24 hour there before.
