      The Wannabees Cycling Club Trail Network is located between Somerset West and Stellenbosch in the greater Helderberg area. The Trails are managed by the Wannabees Cycling Club (WCC). The club has almost two thousand members across all levels, ages and abilities. Although the club, when founded, was primarily a road cycling club, the development of MTB trails has quickly grown a strong group of Mountain Bikers.

      The club has developed and manages +- 150km’s of MTB trails across more than 20 farms as well as a community Bike park trail in a Municipal Park in Somerset West. The Southey Vines/Geelsloot Bike Park has hosted the Spur Schools league since 2013. The aim of the club is to support and nurture cycling in all it’s disciplines in the Helderberg Area. We support events that cover Road, MTB and Track Cycling

      The WCC is a volunteer based multi-discipline cycling club that facilitates & promotes cycling activities for its members within the local community. This includes education and development of the sport as well as the building and managing of off-road trails through agreements with local land owners. The club is affiliated to formal cycling structures within SA.

      Access Information:
      Wannabees riders usually make use of the trailheads at Somerbosch or 69 Winery Road, where there is secure parking and other amenities, and from where all ride areas in the Wannabees trail network can be accessed. After your ride you can also enjoy outstanding refreshments at either the Somerbosch Bistro or the 69 Winery Road Restaurant. Alternatively there is a third trailhead at the Waterstone Village Mall in Somerset West, from where the entire network can also be accessed.

      Permit and Membership Information:
      Please note that the MTB trails are marshalled. Only riders with valid, displayed bike boards or day permits can use the club's trails. Day Permits can be bought at Somerbosch Bistro or at 69 Winery Road Restaurant. Membership information is linked below. Cycling is permitted on marked trails only and in the direction indicated on the maps and trail signage.
