    Default MTB in the East Rand

    Recently took up MTBing and been doing the Emperors and Benoni Country Club routes. Couple of friends starting out and the group has been growing since then to 7 of us and keeps on growing.

    We hit these trails on Saturday mornings. Needless to say "die gogga het gebyt"

    Can wait for my daughters to be old enough to join. Anyway, back to point...Is there perhaps any other know spots in the East Rand to ride?

    Thaba Trails and Rietvlei are fun trails

    Both are Jhb South just outside Alberton.

    There is Modderfontein trail which is really good. R40

    A bit more Irene but at least up the back of R21, the Red Barn trail is my favourite, its got an amazing trail, most of it in the forest, but some great open riding too! R40

    I know there is also one at the Benoni Country Club now, they're adding as they go along (and I remember it being free at a time, not sure if still applicable)

    Check out the Hub SA forum as well, they got great info on routes and trails!

    Haha, we have a Rietvlei in Cape Town so when people on the hub were talking about that and Modders, I thought they meant down here dde02

    Had a quick 10km yesterday at Modderfontein track and I was pleasantly surprised.

    Never even knew this place existed. Really a awesome track.

    Spruit is a well known and popular route in the hart of Sandton. Not a formal institution.
