The unofficial, sort out teething problems launch of our trails, drew all the locals with a bike and all the riding weekenders together into a mass ride through the Rockhopper forest. After the initial “seeding” process through the forest we split into 4 groups to ride the green, blue and red routes. Quite a few hours later we gathered again at the Oak & Vigne for coffee, breakfast and war stories.
The trails are now open to the public and the permit system is in place. We’ve left the green route as a free trail and this is especially for families and novices who want to get a feel for the trails. Blue and Red routes require permits as we go over private land – and of course the trails require upkeep!
There are lots of people to thank but the Pedal Power Association HAVE to be mentioned. Without their funding and support of our vision Greyton & Genadendal would not yet be on the MTB map! PPA will in due course (when there is a gap in the calendar) open the routes officially and notify their database of an open weekend.
Next big thing in Greyton is the Greyton Classic MTB and trail run event on the weekend of the 15/16th June.
See you there!
