• Trails - Crystal Clear Umzimkulu river – Umzimkulu Run

    Intshitshi Spoor

    An easy amble along the banks of the Umzimkulu River, suitable for novices and children.

  • Trails- Mzimkulu Run. Sunset ride along the river.

    Mzimkulu Run

    Much the same as for Intshitshi Spoor but a little longer – so, much more fun!

  • Trails – Steep bridge at end of Khotso Clamber – back to tar road at Mt Grace

    Rainbow/Khotso Clamber

    Not much climbing on this trail as it starts with 5 – 8km of the beautiful flowing trails right next to the river.

  • Trails – Some new Ekhutuleni trail

    Ekhutuleni Elevation

    This is the most exciting and technical of all the trails with a little bit of climbing thrown in.

  • In the Area – Typical sunset in Underberg

    Milk Run

    Milk Run is the access route into single track heaven. You gotta do it to get there.


Splendid Spoortrekkers,

It is not often that I pen something après velo, but I am compelled to after our magnificent ride last Thursday night!  The temperature was balmy, the tracks smooth and flowing and the sunset was chocolate box perfect.

Join the Spoors Team on Thursday.  We wish to share this beauty with you.  Pedal into our world, high up into the mountains, along the single tracks, that showcase the best our district has to offer.  We encourage you to invite Friends, Family and even Enemies to join you on a ride into the world that we wish to illuminate…..ride into a Spoor’s world that will make all of your woes pall into insignificance.  Bring along your baggage, your old feuds, hurts or disappointments, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores of failure……we guarantee that after a few pedal strokes they just dissolve.

Tell me that Charlize Theron is the only educated person from Benoni!

There will be the usual discussion around Big Red’s philosophical question at the après velo bring and share.

In order to arrive prepared, and not feel too inadequate, Thursday’s après velo question is:

Why is it that the hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread?”

The usual news for Thursday:

Kiddie’s rides sets off at 4:00 from the Spoors Clubhouse.

Adult’s ride – including the “Much Less Lonely Hearts Club” – departs at 5:15 with a sumptuous feast afterwards.

Please bring some meat for New Smokey and a salad or some veges to share.  In the interest of keeping me in the zone, with my newly acquired Emotional Intelligence, please refrain from bringing any Carbs.
I remain the Educated, One and Oni from Benoni,

Barend Edmund Smith the 1st AKA Wolfie
