Facilities and Services

Heading back to Stellenbosch was a trip down memory lane for Devlin as this is where he learned to ride mountain bikes, a fact which had a serious impact on his studies!!!

Stellies has a great variety of trails, from the gentle trails of the Berg Pad above Coetzenburg to the fun of Eden to the big hills and beauty of Jonkershoek.

On this trip we decided to ride the infamous G-Spot trail at Eden/Paradyskloof and then hit Jonkershoek for a day.

As a riding weekend goes, it’s a pretty epic combination.

Contact the locals. A place like Stellenbosch needs local info to be truly enjoyed. We are in the business of riding destinations and we had to work hard to find the good spots. If you contact the local bike store or someone like Bennett, you will have a totally different and better experience. Closest Bike shop- Mason’s Bike Inn +27 (0)21 883 2202
