• 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.

Zealous Spoortrekkers,

Spring has finally arrived and along with it, the necessity to pinch less flesh between your forefingers when you grab an elbow!

Join the Spoors Team on Thursday, as we venture up into the mountains, along our single tracks, in search of the endorphins that are the inevitable result of feeling the closeness of nature, coupled with the rush of wind through our hair.  Experience what it feels like to be that golden retriever with its head out of the car window, slobbering on all that venture too close!

To old friends, new friends and those we are yet to meet, we would like to extend an invitation to join us.  We guarantee that you will experience the best and worst that we have on offer in the district.  Pierre and Ian – AKA Big Red – will be there to highlight the worst, while I douse their acerbic temperaments with my gentle, emotional intelligence skills – recently acquired at a carb-free, emotional intelligence motivational conference!  (For those that may be interested I will do a short PowerPoint of the main points while we braai – ra ra ra)

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:

“If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?”

The usual news for Thursday:

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

Adult’s ride – including the “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 your Oni, from Benoni,

Barend Edmund Smith the 1st AKA Wolfie
