      Having negotiated a long lease we are proud and excited to be building a bike park without comparison. Right here in the South of Johannesburg at 101 Klip River Drive, Mulbarton. The 450 hectares offer a nature reserve in the middle of the bustling city.

      The new trails were launched on 3rd September 2011. So much has been achieved in this short time ~ the 30km, more technical/challenging ride is now open. This ride is certainly JOHANNESBURG'S TOUGHEST MTB TRAIL with extremely exciting downhills on single track ~ it will blow your mind!! Not for the faint-hearted!! The Yellow route is a great 14km, mainly non-technical, endurance ride on jeep track. While riding you can see...impala, blesbuck, zebra, wildebees and our own majestic SPRINGBOK.

      The trails are colour coded in yellow, green, blue and black indicating the ride difficulty. Running / Walking trails are coded in orange.

      The Thaba Trails office on site is open on Saturdays & Sundays and routes can be ridden from 06h30 to 17h00 seven days a week. We stock a small range of products for the MTB enthusiast and refreshments will be available.

      Night riding happens @ Rietvlei Cycle Park on Wednesday, setting off @ 18h00 unless it's raining/snowing!!

      For a great new ride experience that will challenge your endurance levels, Thaba Trails is the place to be!
