Today I joined Adam and Marco for my first ride at the relatively new Modderfontein Mountain Bike Trail park and wow it defintely did not dissapoint. We parked at the sports clubhouse and paid R40 for our entry ticket and then rode our bikes the 2km to where the trails begin.
It really was a great ride plenty of flowing jeep track, single track and forest sections. It is hard to believe we have so much open ground right here in the middle of Johannesburg. We did just over 42km and did part of the green route first and then the yellow route (click here to check out the route). The routes are well marked and maintained and I enjoyed every minute of my riding there. There are a few small drags and hills so the total ascent we did was just over 500m, which got the heart rate up nicely (ave 155bpm). At the end of the ride, back at the sports clubhouse, there were loverly egg and bacon rolls and a Seattle Coffee van that made an awesome cappucino. Great ride definitly will be back....
