Clarens has a variety of mountain biking trails, the trick of course
is to know where to go and where not to go. At Clarens Xtreme we are
keen cyclist and have basically pedalled any possible track in and
around Clarens. Below we have listed some of our easy accessible route
options to go cycle, even at Fouriesburg because they got some amazing
trails worth the drive.
To start you need a map, so come to our office bring your smart phone along and come take a picture of it or purchase a map for R20 (unfortunately we have no marked trails)
If you want to cycle in our village conservancy which trails are part of the well known Ashburton series you have to purchase a "Village Conservancy hiking map" which doubles as your cycling permit.
As the name says it is a loop that goes in and around our village ranging from village dirt road, single track some sand stone ridges and lekker technical down hills. Don’t let the distance fool you if you are tuff do it twice. The trail has been featured in the Tread magazine. Definitely the best to ride if you don’t have time or if you are in the mood for a short technical ride
his trail is taking you 15km out of town 4km tar road and then some gravel road with breath taking climbs. You double back on the same road to town. This trail is a definite must do, it goes into Rebellie game farm which is amazing. And of course don’t forget to get to the game farm in the top corner of a mountain means a lot of up hills
On this trail you will have some 3km tar road to travel before you hit the gravel roads taking you on a 40km loop.
This road is ideal if you want to get time in the saddle without any technical riding. This loop can be extended and one can do almost a 100km of gravel road. When you get the map just ask us for the info on the extension or even buy a village map and on your way back loop into the village loop.
Mostly on Saturday’s there is a local ride leaving from the Clarens Brewery please make contact with them over an Beer to join in.
