      Howick Mountain Biking is a specialist Mountain Bike Club formed for those who are passionate about Mountain Biking. We are located in Howick in the Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands of South Africa and do most of our riding in the plantations between Howick and the Karkloof. Technical singletrack is where we are at and to this end we have laid out over 90km of singletrack, varying from gentle terrain and tree lined paths to attention grabbing sections that are aptly named Suicide Slide, The Face, Rushalot and The Mother.

      Day license/Sappi indemnity or Annual Membership is compulsory to makes use of these trails. Please visit www.howickmountainbiking.co.za for details. Rogue riders will be strictly dealt with. Please note that day licenses are only applicable to Howick Trails and that a separate day license is required for additional trail networks. Annual members may ride additional trail networks free of charge.

      Howick MTB Club has numerous club activities and schedule regular club rides. Although we love singletrack, we cater for all levels of riders. We ride hard..we have fun... and we simply revel in Mountain Biking!
