Hermanus + Kleinmond club ride
The Kleinmond and Hermanus MTB clubs recently explored some of the Kleinmond trails together. Bertus van Zyl sent us this update.
During our recent Hermanus MTB Club ride we were privileged to ride the Kleinmond Black Route. 10 riders from the club and High School MTB team showed up on Sunday morning, none of us knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised to have 4 friendly local riders from the Kleinmond club guide us on a scenic route on which we encountered the famous Wild Horses and stunning views of the Botrivier estuary and the ocean beyond. The last third of the ride took our breath away firstly by the steep little climb and quite literally the breathtaking view that awaited us on the contour line, taking us back to Kleinmond. The “not technical” singletrack kept teasing us to quickly catch a glimpse of the view without riding the track.
After 3 hours we were thankful to reach Kleinmond but also overwhelmed by the unexpected beauty we witnessed. Absolutely worth the trip.
Thank you Kleinmond Cycling Club.
