• 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.


Dear 2018 Eurosteel, Drak MTB Descent, MTB Challenge and GWK, Run the Rivers Trail Run Entrants,

Entries for the 2018 races are now open to the public.  Entries are coming in fast, so if you would like to enter, we would encourage you to go online – www.sanispoors.co.za – and click on the race entry logo relative to the event that you wish to enter for.

To the many that have already entered, you are in for a treat as the Spoors Team are lovingly preparing new tracks and improving the ones previously ridden.  A note to the procrastinators amongst our beloved cycluminati – entries are limited to 400 cyclists.  Thus, if you wish to ride, what has been described by many as “single track heaven”, drop the hammer, get off Facebook and do it!

Registration and Meet and Greet – Sponsors and Land Owners:

 On Friday, 19 January, in keeping with the laid back, hillbilly approach the Spoors Team pride themselves on, we will once again be hosting the registration and opportunity to mingle with the locals and sponsors at the Olde Duck Café.

We are very fortunate to have Eurosteel as principle sponsor again in 2018, for the MTB events and GWK for the trail run.  We would like to thank them for their continued support.
